[pivotCE]A Template for Web Apps


Recommended Posts

Have you ever wanted (or needed) to create your own app for webOS?

I did.

My aim was to create custom apps to launch websites or local html/css/javascript files.  Read on for…

What I did:

Since I knew nothing about Mojo or Enyo, I went looking for a simple template app that I could customize as required using nothing but a text editor and Jason Robitaille’s IpkPackager. But if such a template exists, I couldn’t find it. So I created one. You can get it over at .

Go explore the template app!

The template app contains a set of detailed instructions and the files are commented to make them easy to understand.

The app also contains instructions for launching local files rather than a website. The idea is to make it as simple as possible to create apps for webOS using regular html, css, and javascript. If the learning curve isn’t as steep, perhaps more users will be able to help themselves.

If you make improvements to the template, please fork the repository and contribute!

If you have questions or comments, visit the story thread over at .

      Hi,
      I'd like to easily stream/cast some movie files (.mkv, .mp4 etc...) on my Ubuntu 21.04 PC to a LG Smart TV having WebOS 4.9.x.
      Both TV and PC are connected on the same LAN network via ethernet cable!
      My router does not provide any UPnP feature!
      I tried to use (with no success):
      - Kodi - enabled UPnP/DLNA and shared my library, then right clicked on a movie and ran "Play using", selected "TV" but I was not able to see anything on my LG TV (i went to Movies and Photos and did not see any remote device or other stuff) (does this method nroamlly work? Maybe there is something wrong with my Kodi / Router configuration? What screen do I have to access on the LG TV to see the DLNA devices?)
      - Integrated Ubuntu "Media Sharing" (see https://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2020/04/home-media-server-ubuntu-2004/) - same as above, I could not see any device from the TV when this option is enabled
      - VLC UPnP feature - same as above
      What options do I have, without buying any additional device like Chromecast, Raspberry PI etc...?

      Anyone have a problem with this app running on LG 4K TV?
      iPlayer app constantly buffers or locks up
      I switch to NOW TV box (not app) & can watch  iPlayer without an issue.
      Also NETFLIX & other catch up apps  work without any buffering or locking.
      Interested to hear your thoughts....

      Is there any music app like Spotify, Tidal, Google Music, anything? How can I stream for example from my phone?

      Recently bought an LG Smart TV in Ireland. 43Nano796NE .
       
      There is a button on the remote for Google assistant. Nothing happens when it is pressed. I downloaded the ThinQ app and have paired it to the TV and Google home assistant. I can turn on off the TV via Google and at best turn on Netflix via Google . Just wondering am I missing something else here given the button on the remote doesn't do anything? There is  also a buttonn for opening up Disney plus and that doesn't open up the app. The app button for Netflix and Prime does work. Maybe a first world problem only. Apps for Ireland are not great, would love to be able to download Virgin media player and All Four.
