> Getting Started Guide for Web OS broken for both Win & Mac.
> -----------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: CB-954
>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Docs, webOS
>    Affects Versions: 1.8.1
>         Environment: WebOS
>            Reporter: Douglas Almquist
>            Assignee: Herm Wong
> 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
