Open webOS Luna System Bus library, daemon, and utilities


Luna-service2 provides a bus-based IPC mechanism used between components in webOS. Luna-service2 is composed of a client library and a central hub daemon. The client library provides API support to register on the bus and communicate with other components. The hub provides a central clearinghouse for all communication. Utilities for monitoring and debugging the bus are included.

How to Build on Linux


Below are the tools and libraries (and their minimum versions) required to build luna-service2:

  • cmake (version required by openwebos/cmake-modules-webos)
  • gcc 4.7.0
  • glib-2.0 2.32.1
  • make (any version)
  • openwebos/cmake-modules-webos 1.0.0 RC7
  • openwebos/libpbnjson 2.5.0
  • openwebos/PmLogLib 3.0.2
  • pkg-config 0.26


Once you have downloaded the source, enter the following to build it (after changing into the directory under which it was downloaded):

$ mkdir BUILD
$ cd BUILD
$ cmake ..
$ make
$ sudo make install

The directory under which the files are installed defaults to /usr/local/webos. You can install them elsewhere by supplying a value for WEBOS_INSTALL_ROOT when invoking cmake. For example:

$ cmake -D WEBOS_INSTALL_ROOT:PATH=$HOME/projects/openwebos ..
$ make
$ make install

will install the files in subdirectories of $HOME/projects/openwebos.

Specifying WEBOS_INSTALL_ROOT also causes pkg-config to look in that tree first before searching the standard locations. You can specify additional directories to be searched prior to this one by setting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable.

If not specified, WEBOS_INSTALL_ROOT defaults to /usr/local/webos.

To configure for a debug build treating warnings as errors, enter:


To see a list of the make targets that cmake has generated, enter:

$ make help


From the directory where you originally ran make install, enter:

$ [sudo] make uninstall

You will need to use sudo if you did not specify WEBOS_INSTALL_ROOT.

Generating Documentation

The tools required to generate the documentation are:

  • doxygen
  • graphviz 2.26.3

Once you have run cmake, enter the following to generate the documentation:

$ make docs

To view the generated HTML documentation, point your browser to Documentation/luna-service2/html/index.html

To install the generated documentation, enter:

$ [sudo] make install-docs

The documentation will be installed to usr/share/doc/luna-service2/html under the tree defined by the value of WEBOS_INSTALL_ROOT (or its default).

You will need to use sudo if you did not specify WEBOS_INSTALL_ROOT.
