MAF SDK

The Metrological Application Framework SDK enables you to develop TV Apps

Getting Started

The getting started, design guidelines and API docs can be found on our SDK website.

Create an App

Create a folder in the "apps" folder using an unique identifier

  mkdir -p apps/com.company.app.AppName

Create the initial structure

  cd apps/com.company.app.AppName
  mkdir -p Contents/Images
  mkdir -p Contents/Javascript
  mkdir -p Contents/Localization
  touch Contents/Localization/en-EU.strings
  touch Contents/Javascript/init.js
  touch Contents/metadata.json

Example Contents/metadata.json

  {
    "identifier": "com.company.app.AppName",
    "name": "My App",
    "version": "1.0.0",
    "author": "My Name",
    "company": "My Company",
    "copyright": "Copyright Company",
    "description": "A description of the App",
    "keywords": "video funny kids music",
    "categories": [
      "video",
      "music",
      "kids"
    ],
    "scripts": "Javascript/init.js",
    "images": {
      "icon": {
        "192x192": "Images/icon.png"
      }
    }
  }

Example Contents/Javascript/init.js which is the first script loaded from the metadata.json (scripts)

  include("Javascript/Views/MainView.js");
  include("Javascript/Views/AboutView.js");

  MAF.application.init({
    views: [
      { id: 'view-MainView', viewClass: MainView },
      { id: 'view-AboutView', viewClass: AboutView }
    ],
    defaultViewId: 'view-MainView',
    settingsViewId: 'view-AboutView'
  });
