The Enyo team was out in full force at the O’Reilly Fluent Conference in San Francisco last week. Enda McGrath got all things Enyo underway with his keynote speech, which you can watch below:
In the booth, attendees scarfed up free t-shirts and got to play with an app we’re working on called Enyo Liveblogger. We identified the act of liveblogging – sharing notes from a talk you’re listening to in realtime – as a great use case for when someone would need to use the same app across different devices. Attendees got a sneak peek of this experience running on a multitude of screen sizes for iOS, Android, Kindle, and desktop devices.
We’ll be flipping this repo open soon, stay tuned for updates as Enyo Liveblogger progresses.
To demonstrate the flexibility of Enyo, Developer Relations Engineer Roy Sutton took on a challenge to adapt fellow Fluent exhibitor Wijmo’s jQuery calendar widget for use with Enyo. In about 20 minutes, Roy was able to wrap their widget so that it could be dropped into an Enyo app. Roy’s work is available on Github here: https://github.com/webOS101/wijcal_sample.
Thanks to everyone who came to see us at Fluent! We’re quickly booking our summer tour schedule, so be sure to follow @EnyoJS on Twitter for the latest events near you.
We’ll have two talks on Wednesday. Enda McGrath, the head of webOS Developer Relations, will give a morning keynote on the philosophy and key benefits of Enyo. Later in the afternoon, Lead Enyo Architect Ben Combee will present a deep dive into Enyo internals.
