Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-954) Getting Started Guide for Web OS broken for both Win & Mac.

Douglas Almquist created CB-954:

             Summary: Getting Started Guide for Web OS broken for both Win & Mac.
                 Key: CB-954
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Docs
    Affects Versions: 1.8.1
         Environment: WebOS
            Reporter: Douglas Almquist
            Assignee: Michael Brooks
             Fix For: 1.8.1

The Getting Started Guide for Web OS for both the Windows and Mac/OSX environments appear
to be broken.

Two discreet issues:
1)  Windows:  Step 2 shows the following:
    Download and install WebOS SDK
    Download and install cygwin SDK (Windows only). 
       Make sure you select "make" as it is not included by default

   Problem: both links point to the same place.  There is no link to cygwin.
   Workarounds might include finding and installing the entire cygwin set
   but it's not clear.  Most teams create customer or 'basic' cygwin installs
   to meet their purposes.  One is left guessing what to do and hacking.

Fix:  Update the Getting Started Guide with the correct link to the installation intended
for WebOS developers.

2) Mac OSX
The installation instructions do not appear to include steps for installing the 'make' functionality
on the Mac.

Focus:  Step 5A
5A. Deploy to Simulator

    Open up your Palm Emulator from your applications folder/start menu.
    Type make in your terminal/cygwin while in the webOS directory.

Expected result:  the make command functions.

Experienced result:  airethernet:webos Dougga$ make
                     -bash: make: command not found

Fix:  Update documentation to include installation to support the 'make' command on Mac OSX.
