  • Managing the running of applications and passing of messages between applications
  • Managing the installation and removal of applications
  • Managing the display of applications
  • Managing the sharing of system resources between different applications and services
  • Managing the dock mode status
  • Managing the security policy and access to a locked device
  • Providing for the display of notifications
  • Providing for system menus
  • Providing for the coordinated rendering of applications
  • Rendering webOS card view, lock screen, status bar, system menus, virtual keyboard, notifications, and launcher, in addition to other system management features that viewable in the System Manager User interface

WebAppMgr, now a separate component, is responsible for running Enyo applications.

About the 'unstable' branch

Minor, low-risk changes are submitted directly to the 'master' branch. Periodically we carefully review a set of changes and create a tag, which corresponds to a stable point.

The 'unstable' branch is used for significant changes while those changes are under active development, and allows for the ongoing review of these changes.

How to Build on Linux

Building the latest "stable" version

Clone the repository openwebos/build-desktop and follow the instructions in the README file.

Building your local clone

First follow the directions to build the latest "stable" version.

To build your local clone of luna-sysmgr instead of the "stable" version installed with the build-webos-desktop script:

  • Open the script with a text editor
  • Locate the function build_luna-sysmgr
  • Change the line "cd $BASE/luna-sysmgr" to use the folder containing your clone, for example "cd ~/github/luna-sysmgr"
  • Close the text editor
  • Remove the file ~/luna-desktop-binaries/luna-sysmgr/luna-desktop-build*.stamp
  • Start the build


  • When you re-clone openwebos/build-desktop, you'll have to overwrite your changes and reapply them
  • Components often advance in parallel with each other, so be prepared to keep your cloned repositories updated
  • Fetch and rebase frequently
