    You can get everthing you need from this link:

    https://developer.palm.com/

    You can develop WebOS apps on a Windows PC, Mac, or Linux machine. All the development tools are freely available from the web. You might also check out the Ares App Builder from Palm which can help speed up your app construction.

    ok, i've looked a little bit around on developer.palm.com and i found a "tutorial" how to install and use the PDK, but i don't understand it. (no, its not my english). So i can i develop with Visual Studio? Can somone made me a step by step introduction? Please?

    EDIT: Ares is supporting C++ now? That would be new for me. @cohoman

    Both Ares and the PDK are relatively new, so you'll need to do some digging to find out how to use them effectively for WebOS development. I suggest you watch the developer videos on the palm developer site which were recorded from the recent Palm Developer Day. One of the videos should cover Ares, while the other the PDK.

    Also, check out the Palm developer forums under the PDK subgroup.

    No you cannot use Visual Studio and no Ares does not support C++.

    You need Eclipse and the SDK. That is all.

    How easy is it to port PalmOS apps to webOS? Can it even be done?

    It cannot. There is always the Classic app.

    developer.palm.com has all of the information you need to get started. If you have any issues, the developer forums there have a lot of knowledgeable people and engineers from Palm.

    For the PDK, you can use Visual Studio. There is a sample app called simple that has a VS project. You can look at it to see some of what is involved.

    For the SDK( HTML, CSS, and Javascript), there are many ways to build an app. I use Jetbrains's WebStorm and the commandline tools to build the app. To debug, I use the AresDebug which is at ares.palm.com/AresDebug.
