CyanogenMod is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to install Google Applications and services.
Linked below is a project that provides these Google Applications for you.
CyanogenMod does still include various hardware-specific code, which is slowly being open-sourced.
All the source code for CyanogenMod is available in the CyanogenMod GitHub repo. Also if you'd like to contribute to CyanogenMod, please visit our Gerrit Code Review at http://review.cyanogenmod.org
