- App Developers
- Sys UI Developers
- The webOS user experience is delivered by the System UI, based on Webkit and Qt. Developers can add new features and integrate other open source technologies to enhance the user experience. You can see great examples of contributions already made in the Community Edition, managed by our friends at webOS-internals.
- OS Core Developers
- Our platform portability layer (PPL), code-named Nyx Project, is the basis for porting webOS to new architectures and hardware. Developers can work from the Linux kernel on up to the System UI and System Services, including enhancing the PPL itself.
- Enthusiast users can help with documentation, help with testing and submit bugs, and discuss features. Come discuss with us on the mailing lists.
