    I'm a tinkerer who wants to build an app for WebOS. I taught myself HTML, CSS, PHP, MySQL and a bit of Javascript over the years and I now want to take this on.

    I have a 2005 Dell Windows XP machine and some time on my hands.

    What other inexpensive software resources would speed development of a relatively simple app that takes Website/RSS data and formats it within a Pre app? Oh, I might also need to link to the Nav/Google Maps apps.

    • Javascript resources/libraries/tools?
    • HTML resources/libraries/tools?
    • CSS resources/libraries/tools?


    I haven't built a site in a couple of years, so I know I'm behind, but I have a good idea and I think it would be fun. My app will be Mojo/WebOS specific for now, but if it's any good, I'll probably make an iPhone app too.

    Thanks in advance for pointing me in the right direction.

    I dunno about porting it over to iPhone and what not, but for Mojo, get Aptana. It's freeware, it has a Mojo plugin, and its REALLY easy to use, and very powerful. I use about 1/100th of the features it offers right now and its REALLY good.

    Good Luck!

    Thanks. I've been searching around the WebOS dev site and found aptana. Where does Eclipse fit in to the process? Do I need it? Aptana sounds like the equivalent to dreamweaver that I used before.

    How long before you've got a simple "scene" going that shows "Hello World"?
    How long before you can pull data from another app/repository?

    Thanks in advance. Hopefully after I learn a bit, I can help others. That's what I did when I learned PHP.
