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 at here

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": {
		"header": {
			"normal": "Images/header.png",
			"focused": "Images/header-focused.png"
		},
		"about": "Images/about.png",
		"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'
});

An empty template has been added into the SDK here

Adding the App

In the "index.html" add your App identifier to the "apps" array in the MAE object

apps: [
	"com.company.app.AppName"
]

Starting the server

The SDK contains already a HTTP server using Node.js, please run the following commands from the command line:

npm install
NODE_PORT=8080 node sdk.js

The SDK can then be launched in Safari, Chrome or Firefox pointing it to http://localhost:8080

License

Please read and agree the the LICENSE before using the SDK.
