Hi there!

I'm a newbie to webOS, I got my Touchpad from the firesale and one of the first things that were annoying me was the HP Pivot from 2011. So I looked for alternatives and found onTap, which isn't ready yet.

So I developed my own Version: pattyland's Pivot

Simply enter
Code:
http://pivot.pattyland.de/
(don't forget the last "/"!) into the Homebrew Pivot Tweak and enjoy something newer than the HP Pivot.

As this is an early alpha test design/functionality can change every day; Feel free to comment!

Known Bugs:
  • Sometimes a few pages fail to load; This happens if some bad code slips through the SimplePIE cleaning engine... Report the page and I will fix iz

Changelog:
  • Beta 001: Few UI changes - Runs good
  • Alpha 003: First try with enyo
  • Alpha 002: WebView with a paper.li widget - crashes luna on rotation, css problems with the browser
  • Alpha 001: PHP rendering webOS Nation RSS Feed to pictures - unflexible, no html...

I just looked at it real quickly...

The cosmetic changes are a big leap forward...

The stories can't be tapped on to expand. Is that a planned feature? Maybe along with a back button?


I like the new direction you are heading in. Can't wait to see more.

Sounds like it's pretty nice! Mind sharing some screenshots for those of us who lack a Touchpad?

It's a work in progress, I guess... But it is way better than nothing and shows a lot of promise.


*Special thanks to WiFi TP File Browser by PreNewbieSV for making the screencaps so easy to transfer to desktop so I could post them quickly.

You can even view the life version online: pattyland's Pivot - unfortunately it look there better than on the touchpad, because the browser lack many features

Should be feature yes... Even better would be if you could swipe to pages... Hmm! I'm currently using a webview that show's simply a minified version of a paper.li Magazine I created... For a final version I think I have to work more with enyo, as one of the bugs I noticed is a luna restart when rotating my Pivot;
Is this happening for you too? o_O

LOL... I'm Landscape all the way...

So I went back in and rotated to Portrait. Just as you said: Luna Restart.


Wait: does this mean I've become an Alpha Tester?

For what it is worth...

Feel free to add any of my LunaCE Wallpapers or boot logos to your Photos page on the Pivot.

I added in the server into Tweaks in the URL column of the tweak but it only gives me "Some to stare at:" blabla. Why doesn't it show up here?

Setting or resetting the Pivot seems to involve opening App Cat, closing App Cat, open App Cat again for changes to occur...

Maybe restart your touchpad? It is important that you close the AppCatalog after opening it and wait while it's closed!

Changing orientation will cause an entire new page to be loaded. In this case, you're trying to load a fairly heavy webpage within an already complex app.

Using a WebView is really ugly, and I would not recommend it. A better way is to implement the base page layout in Enyo, then add code to dynamically pull and instantiate content.

Also, the viewport is not 1024*768.

Regarding the patch:
- To refresh, open App Catalog. The new issue will appear after it's done downloading the next time you open App Catalog.
- If you don't have Tweaks or if it isn't working properly, the patch will default to enabled with the feed pointing to the onTap server.
