Jellyfin WebOS client

This is a small wrapper around the web interface that the server provides ( so most of the developement happens there.

Building the app with the webOS SDK can be done either via Docker or by installing the webOS SDK directly. is a wrapper around the Docker commands, if you have installed the SDK directly, just ommit that part.


Building is easy, and doesn't require anything besides the SDK:

Testing on a TV requires registering a LG developer account and setting up the devmode app.

Once you have installed the devmode app on your target TV and logged in with your LG developer account, you need to turn on the Dev Mode Status and Key Server. Make sure to take a note of the passphrase.

# Add your TV. The defaults are fine, but I recommend naming it `tv`.
./ ares-setup-device --search

# This command sets up the SSH key for the device `tv` (Key Server must be running)
./ ares-novacom --device tv --getkey

# Run this command to verify that things are working.
./ ares-device-info -d tv

# This command installs the app. Remember to build it first.
./ ares-install -d tv org.jellyfin.webos_*.ipk

# Launch the app and the web developer console.
./ ares-inspect -d tv org.jellyfin.webos

# Or just launch the app.
./ ares-launch -d tv org.jellyfin.webos
