How to Build

This section describes the build process which creates cordova.js file for the sectv-tizen cordova platform. Please see Cordova-js for more detail of compile task.

  1. Clone the Cordova-js project as sibling of this project.

    $ git clone
    $ git clone

    Repositories will be created like below directory structure.

  2. Add "sectv-tizen" as a target of "compile" task on Gruntfile.js in the cordova-js project.

        pkg: grunt.file.readJSON('package.json'),
        "compile": {
            "sectv-tizen": {}
        "compile-browserify": {
  3. Add "sectv-tizen" property to "cordova-platforms" object in the cordova-js project's package.json with path to this project's repository as its value.

    "cordova-platforms": {
        "cordova-sectv-tizen": "../cordova-sectv-tizen"
  4. In the cordova-js directory's root, run below command to create cordova-js/pkg/cordova.sectv-tizen.js file.

    $ grunt compile:sectv-tizen
  5. We recommend to copy the created file to the www directory which is including Tizen Application project templates for further use. In the cordova-js directory:

    $ cp ./pkg/cordova.sectv-tizen.js ../cordova-sectv-tizen/www/cordova.js

How to use

For creating application package for 2015's Tizen TV:

  1. Create a Tizen project with Tizen IDE and copy the www directory's content to the Tizen project.
  2. Copy the built cordova-js/pkg/cordova.sectv-tizen.js to your tizen project directory's root with name cordova.js.
