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.
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.
