Firefox os

here to boost the Open Web


A trip that started 2 years ago



And now we are seeing the results



Are you new to Firefox OS?



This tech is famiiliar to me ...




seriously, nothing else ;)

Describe your web app with a manifest

{
    "version": "1",
    "name": "Firefox OS Boilerplate App",
    "launch_path": "/Firefox-OS-Boilerplate-App/index.html",
    "description": "Boilerplate Firefox OS app with example use cases to get started",
    "icons": {
        "64": "/Firefox-OS-Boilerplate-App/images/logo64.png",
        "128": "/Firefox-OS-Boilerplate-App/images/logo128.png"
    },
    "developer": {
        "name": "Robert Nyman",
        "url": "http://robertnyman.com"
    },
    "installs_allowed_from": ["*"],
    "default_locale": "en",
    "permissions": {
        "desktop-notification": {
            "description" : "To show notifications"
        },
        "geolocation": {
            "description" : "Marking out user location"

A whole new world of awesomeness


Dialing via Javascript \o/


var call = navigator.mozTelephony.dial('555-333-222-666');
call.onconnected = function onConnected(evt) {
	console.log('Better start to speak now');
};
call.ondisconnected = function onDisconnected(evt) {
	console.log('Call too long, dude, your bill is getting a bit crazy');
};
call.onerror = function onError(evt) {
	console.log('This is embarrassing');
};
							

Lots of new apis!


Sending SMS (yes they still exist) with JS


var sms = navigator.mozMobileMessage.send('555-333-222-666', 
	"Mum I'm OK, I finished all the vegies");
sms.onsucces = function onSuccess(evt) {
	console.log('Now your mum can go to sleep happy');
};
sms.onerror = function onError(evt) {
	console.log('Problems ahead');
};
							

Seriously, a lot of new apis


Talk to the SDCARD of your phone

var deviceStorage = navigator.getDeviceStorage('/books');
var request = deviceStorage.get('Gone With The Wind.ebook');
request.onsuccess = function onSuccess(evt) {
	//request.result is an File object ...
};

var request = deviceStorage.delete('horrible_profile_photo.jpg');
request.onerror = function onError(evt) {
	console.log('Deal with it dude');
}
							

Even Push notifications



FTW! And trying not to drain your battery!

window.navigator.setMessageHandler('push', function onPushNotification(evt) {  var endpoint = evt.pushEndpoint;  var version = evt.version;
.... do your magic ....});

All this work is driven for and by you
