Project Chameleon

Open source framework from Sean Heber and Craig Hockenberry:

Chameleon is a drop in replacement for UIKit that runs on Mac OS X. In many cases, your iOS code doesn’t need to change at all in order to run on a Mac. […]

Our approach with Chameleon was to use native AppKit constructs in the context of UIKit. The glue that holds these two frameworks together is Core Animation.

It ends up the current Mac version of Twitterrific was built using Chameleon. Great stuff, and they’re raising money to fund further development.
