New Cyanogen logo

As Cyanogen marches forward with its lofty goal of putting a bullet through Google’s head, you’re likely to see the ROM maker do as much as possible to help set its software aside from stock Android. One such change is the new Cyanogen Platform SDK.

The upcoming SDK will eventually allow developers to integrate CM specific features into their apps. This includes things like proxies, screen-off gestures, and even custom quick setting tiles. The latter of these is the first part of the API that will be made available to developers, but is just the beginning of bolder ambitions. Of course, Cyanogen will first need to convince enough developers to actually utilize its SDK, but at the very least you can probably expect many of the smaller indie developers to jump onboard.

The open source project can be followed on GitHub and the CM code review page. There’s also a G+ community, but there’s no active community posting there just yet.
