Subject Re: Cordova Port on Tizen
Date Wed, 14 Mar 2012 15:35:41 GMT
Hi Brian, Filip,

Thanks for your welcome.

The best place to learn more on the Tizen platform is the public project 
web site and the developers' web pages:

You will find there public releases of the SDK (linux, windows) and 
related documentation.

There's no Tizen devices available yet.

Tizen APIs are still subject to change (the current SDK is a Beta 
release) so we are trying to stay in sync with them.

About porting Cordova to Tizen, we should use only W3C and Tizen Web 
APIs (actually our preferred choice once they exist !). On the public 
repository, you will find only 
available W3C and Tizen Web APIs implementations.

When we started to work on porting PhoneGap callback-js was not yet 
available, but we heard about that unifying effort so at some points, we 
will have to integrate Tizen support in callback-js. Do you think we 
should continue with our JavaScript shim-layer (inspired from the WebOS 
one) or should we directly try to integrate it into callback-js? (or may 
be both ?)

Last, next step is clearly to make cordova-tizen available through 
Apache Foundation and we will work on ICLA thing asap.

Advices or suggestions are welcome.
