Back in March we announced that we would make available additional components from the current release of webOS for the TouchPad. To distinguish this code from the Open webOS project, we’re calling these components the “Community Edition”.
Today we’re pleased to share the “Community Edition” code.
We have been working closely with WebOS Internals to bring this to fruition. WebOS Internals has set up a dedicated team for providing support for legacy TouchPad devices using the webOS Community Edition release. Going forward they also plan to support Open webOS 1.0 on well-documented mobile devices with readily available hardware drivers. The WebOS Internals team is called WebOS Ports and is led by Tom King (ka6sox).
With the release of the webOS Community Edition you can now learn how the TouchPad works, modify your TouchPad experience and then apply that learning to Open webOS 1.0 in the future. We are excited to empower the community to create custom user experiences on the TouchPad. For example, developers can now modify the card view, launcher, notifications, Just Type and more.
The Community Edition is focused on supporting the TouchPad. By contrast, the Open webOS 1.0 release planned for September includes modernized technologies to better enable the community to port webOS to the hardware of their choice, and to integrate open source technologies in areas such as BlueZ bluetooth and GStreamer. No matter which aspect of the platform you care about, webOS will provide options for you. The source code can be found here.
We are planning a busy month for July, where we will be attending Spain.js in Madrid, GothamJS in New York City, Open Web Camp in San Jose, Throne of JS in Toronto, OSCON and PhoneGap Day in Portland. And, we’ll be doing all this while also preparing our July deliverables.
We continue to see great progress on all things webOS and are marching forward in meeting our milestones for the 1.0 release.
Hope to see you at one of these events!
