Chapter two of Developing Applications in JavaScript using the Palm Mojo™ Framework now available

3 BY devrel

The second chapter of the Rough Cuts version of Palm webOS: Developing Applications in JavaScript using the Palm Mojo™ Framework by Palm Software CTO Mitch Allen is now available from O’Reilly.

This chapter is titled “Application Basics” and shows the reader how to create their first application and discusses many of the underlying philosophies of programming in Mojo and webOS. This chapter includes the material on which Mitch’s recent O’Reilly webinar was based, but goes into more detail and shows more of the coding details of programming a webOS application.

If you’re new to JavaScript, HTML or CSS, you may want to familiarize yourself with their fundamentals before tackling the next few chapters. Even so, the material presented here is fairly basic and you don’t need to be a web development expert to build applications for webOS.

In this chapter, you’ll learn how to build a basic webOS application starting with the installation of the SDK. You’ll create a new application project, customize the critical application components and develop the first parts of the News application, which will be used throughout the book as our sample app. Along the way, we will go into detail on how to use the framework and apply the different APIs, widgets and styles.

This is only available from O’Reilly for those users who have purchased access to the title. Please visit  Safari Books Online to download this chapter.
