Getting Started with WebOS

Pivotce.com has published couple of really useful articles on a guide to coming back (or even improve your existing WebOS experience). Over the last few years we have seen various parts of WebOS starting to fail. We had to update a Root Certificate, Preware Domain name change to name a few. So even for an experienced WebOS user these are few handy guides on improving your WebOS Experience.

London Tube Status WebOS App rewritten in Enyo 2

Our London Tube Status Mojo App never went beyond BETA status, as we discovered, that several other Apps beat us to it and provided the functionality we were building. So we parked our effort to focus on other apps. But we discovered that some of these apps are no longer functioning.

So we decided to resurrect our London Tube Status App, and while we are at it, rewrite in Enyo 2.0. So this is now the second Mojo App we have ported to Enyo 2 and PhoneGap. Must say, once you have ported one app, it gets progressively easier.

Keeping up with the trend we set out white MyVue App, we also decided to release the source code under Apache 2.0 license for the benefit of any developer who would like to reuse our code or simply see an example of how to write an app using Enyo 2.0 and PhoneGap and utilize native WebOS functions. Check out London Tube Status GitHub Repository. We are hoping this will encourage other developers to consider porting their old Mojo Apps to Enyo 2.0 or even inspire new developers to join forces and build more Enyo apps for WebOS.

WebOS20090606 – Happy Birthday WebOS

On 2009 June 06, WebOS was unveiled to the world at CES 2009. It has come a long way since then. In those 4 years WebOS has gone from the most innovate kid in the block envy of all the other mobile platforms to a platform purely used by die-hard fans bitten by the WebOS bug.

This unavailing video still explains why WebOS was so magical back in 2009 and in certain ways why there are still little gems hidden in that platform that no other Platform has manged to emulate. The simplicity and elegance is just sublime.

MyLocalVue WebOS App rewritten in Enyo 2

Enyo 2 has been around for a while, quite stable and increasing in functionality with every release, Ares 2.0 has also become stable providing a quick start for Enyo 2.0 projects. PhoneGap has been progressively exposing native WebOS functionality we lost when Enyo was rewritten to be cross-platform. So we felt the time has finally come for us to start rewriting our old Mojo and Enyo 1.0 apps.

Within a few hours we were able to get most of the functionality working, then a few more days spent on testing and tweaking things and we managed to port all the existing functionality over. We didn’t stop there. We added the support for playing Film Trailers !  Something we promised for a while but never got around to delivering. Now that’s finally done as well.

We also decided to release the source code under Apache 2.0 license for the benefit of any developer who would like to reuse our code or simply see an example of how to write an app using Enyo 2.0 and PhoneGap and utilize native WebOS functions. Check out Mobileteck GitHub Repository

Our aim is to port all our existing Mojo and Enyo 1.0 apps into Enyo 2 in the near future.
