PreCentral: Why Enyo? HP's Kevin Schaaf explains why [video]

Why Enyo? HP's Kevin Schaaf explains why

It's one thing to convince a developer that they should make an app for a specific platform isn't usually a hard affair. There are obvious reasons to develop apps for iOS or Android, and the most obvious of those is the fact that there are lots and lots of potential users. But convincing a developer which framework they should use? That's a different matter. Realistically they could use the platform-native framework, but if you're wanting to target multiple platforms (iOS, Android, Windows Phone, webOS, and web browsers on all devices) by just developing one app, there are only a few options worth considering.

One of those is a favorite of the webOS crowd: Enyo. Now up to version 2.0 and evolving, expanding, and building out in open source, Enyo's JavaScript component scheme allows developers to create modular components to build rich cross platform applications that… you know what? HP's Kevin Schaaf recently got up on the stage at the dotJS JavaScript conference in France and explained all of this a lot better than we ever could. Watch the video after the break and be convinced.

    • LG selects Korbyt platform as webOS signage partner

      This new combination will provide LG customers with a complete digital signage solution in the form of multi-functional displays without the need for additional external devices. The RMG Networks Korbyt platform has been selected as a webOS signage partner of global electronics giant LG. The combination will provide LG customers with a complete digital signage solution in the form of multi-functional displays without the need for additional external devices. It will also allow content managed within the Korbyt platform to be displayed directly onto webOS powered LG screens of all sizes, even mobile phones, thanks to the platform’s mobile app extension. In addition, LG’s clients already using webOS Signage can now choose to use the Korbyt platform for all their enterprise visual communications. Korbyt clients with a preference for LG webOS Signage can stay true to their choice of display hardware. Korbyt is RMG Networks’ state-of-the-art content management system for digital signage. It was developed with the aim of reinventing visual content creation, management and publishing across the widest possible range of digital end points. Featuring an intuitive user interface, including a drag-and-drop content creator, this cloud-based CMS engine enables companies to create immersive interactive visual communication applications which are reshaping customer, and employee, experiences. webOS Signage is LG’s Linux kernel-based multitasking operating system for smart devices, such as smart TVs, acting as a media player for digital signage applications. It can now leverage key capabilities of the Korbyt platform, providing users with access to a wealth of options for segmented realtime data and content visualisation around the globe. It can all be managed efficiently from one central or multiple locations via an intuitive web-based portal. Ben Johnston, vice president of product management at RMG Networks, said: “We are excited to be extending the reach of our Korbyt digital signage platform to LG webOS powered displays, and to be working with a huge company like LG. We recognise the quality, convenience, and performance that LG webOS provides to customers. “Combined with our industry-leading data integration and content creation features, customers now have access to a powerful digital signage solution without the need for an external media player. This is a game-changing development for the digital signage industry.” Source: https://www.avinteractive.com/news/business/lg-selects-korbyt-platform-webos-signage-partner-18-07-2018/

    • webOS was the inspiration for Android P

      Interesting article and for those that had a Palm webOS device, you'll appreciate this! No Android P didn’t blatantly copy the iPhone gestures, webOS was the inspiration Most people who saw last night’s Google I/O 2018 keynote could’ve mistaken the new gestures in Android P as an iPhone X copy, but that’s simply not the case. Google didn’t seek inspiration from Apple’s new iPhone X. In fact, Google and Apple both drew inspiration from the same operating system – webOS. And the designer of webOS is Matias Duarte, who is the brains behind Google’s Material Design language – something Google talked a lot about at yesterday’s keynote. For the bystander and armchair journalist it would seem that Apple was copied yet again by Google, but originally, it was Apple who copied an iconic user interface paradigm which was designed and evangelized by Duarte almost a decade ago. Back in the day, the Palm Pre which was a product championed by former Apple executive Jon Rubinstein had a gesture based user interface that allowed users to swipe the home bar – a sophisticated control mechanism which went beyond the standard button that the iPhone and original Android phones used at the time to enable gestures. At the time, these phones didn’t have the technology to have full bezel-less displays hence that area was needed. Using the home bar, one could flick up to bring up the dock and swipe fully up to bring up a card view of all recently viewed apps. Conceptually, this isn’t too dissimilar from what the iPhone X incorporated on its Super Retina display and what Duarte’s current team has implemented on Android. This design change comes from one of the themes around the Android P release which has a focus on the bezel-less trend and as demonstrated by Google’s Dave Burke, VP of Android program management, even a smaller 5-inch display device like the Pixel 2. Both the iPhone and now Android borrow this fundamental concept and rightly so, as this is an intuitive way to evolve the control cluster – as the iPhone over indexed on a singular button while Android phones opted for a medley of three software buttons or hardware buttons amongst other odd combinations. Duarte’s vision coming full circle More so, since Duarte is a part of Google and also the creator of this user interface concept – it would be highly unfair to say that Google copied Apple or Apple copied webOS. This concept was hobbled by the technology of the time and this is the right time for it to hit critical mass. At the time when Duarte left Palm to join Google and revitalize the company around design, one of his first projects was around Android Honeycomb and Ice Cream Sandwich which also drew inspiration from his work at Palm – the card based multitasking views. It took his team two more editions of Android, an overall 2 years more, with the launch of Lollipop to mobilize the company around a design motif called Material Design, which centers a digital environment space in layers interacting like paper with touch inputs. That was 2014 by the way and 4 years later Google is again mobilized around Material Design phase 2, which further incorporates some of his older concepts. The concepts might be old but the implementation is bang on. The fact that Apple has gone in that direction and even OnePlus has built something similar for its phones is evidence enough, even I can report that it works really well on a Pixel 2 XL, it's been a day that I have been testing the beta version.
