This is the sample code for Ben Combee's presentation on Enyo and Node.js at the TXJS 2011 confernece.
This is a simple Enyo application showing a fortune cookie application. It has three implementations of the "get next fortune" code.
- LocalFortunes.js: hard-coded messages in the JS file
- FortuneJar.js: reads the messages file in the Enyo app using a enyo.WebService request
- FortuneService.js: asks a fortune cookie service implemented in node.js for a fortune
The implementation that's used is selected by the commented-out code in app.js.
We supply a build.cmd for building the package on Windows. This can be easily modified into a build.sh file for Mac OS X or Linux.
You'll need the HP webOS 3.0 SDK, a free download at http://developer.hpwebos.com/ to build this and test it. This will run fine in the HP webOS 3.0 emulator or on a HP TouchPad device.
