[pivotCE] Preware.org woes: feeds/site down as domain slips away

Having trouble accessing Preware feeds in either Preware or WOSQI today?  Tried getting to www.preware.org and failed?  Well, you’re not alone.  Read on for the details.

UPDATE – Rod Whitby chimed in on the discussion (linked below). He confirmed the domain was newly expired and taken over. The webOS Internals team is contacting the individual for their demands but mentioned they also purchased preware.net to use as a backup if need be. Preware will be updated as well to reflect to domain change. He did offer a temporary solution for ipkg.preware.org. Edit your local DNS to point it to the IP 140.211.169.161.

pivotCE reached out to the webOS Internals team today on Twitter for answers.  It seems the sysadmin team has been alerted.  As for the course of action they’ll take, I’m not sure.  But while we all wait, have a look at your favorite “whois” site for the likely culprit. Don’t have one?  I did the hard work for you.

Simply put, someone snatched the domain.  See the “whois” result from
.

What does this mean for feed access?  Well, it’s hard to tell for the moment but for now we’ll just have to wait and see.  Hopefully some type of temporary solution can be put in place soon.

This has put the fear into some people (me included). You may remember when the and permanently closed.  Let’s hope history doesn’t repeat itself.  Speculation would say it won’t because will be using the same feeds for .

Folks are discussing this topic over at .  Feel free to chime in.

On a personal note, to the person who seems to have snatched the domain, not cool.  Seriously.  Not cool.

      Build Your First App for webOS TV
      Web apps are written using HTML with copious amounts of CSS and JavaScript for style and functionality. Any modern Web browser can deliver this type of apps to the user.  With webOS TV, web apps are elevated to the lofty title of a first class citizen - web apps on webOS TV are given access to the same hardware, and OS features that typically available to native apps.
       
      Web apps built for webOS TV are very similar to standard web apps. Like the standard web applications, you can create web apps for webOS TV using standards based web technologies like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Anyone with experience in building web applications can easily start developing web apps for webOS TV.
       
      Now, just create your app using the CLI.
      Run the webOS TV CLI.
       
      Create new app with Enyo bootplate.
      ares-generate -t moonstone-2014 first-app Now you can continue developing and testing your app.
       
      Edit ./first-app/appinfo.json file. Update "id" and "title" properties in appinfo.json file with text editor as below.
      {
          "id": "com.yourdomain.app.firstapp",
          "version": "0.0.1",
          "vendor": "My Company",
          "type": "web",
          "main": "index.html",
          "title": "singlepane",
          "icon": "icon.png",
          ...
      }
       
      Package your app from app directory. If app is packaged successfully, you can see the created .ipk file.
      ares-package first-app  
      Run the webOS TV Emulator.
       
      Install your app to emulator. Be sure to use the correct file name for your package.
      ares-install com.yourdomain.app.firstapp_0.0.1_all.ipk  
      Launch your app on emulator.
      ares-launch com.yourdomain.app.firstapp
