    Tweaks is a webOS application that can be used to "tweak" the operation of patches. In this way, a single configurable patch can implement a number of different options, and the user can use the Tweaks app to choose between these options.

    The Tweaks app has a node.jsjsjs $service$ $that$ $keeps$ $a$ $db8$ $database$ $of$ $all$ $these$ $configuration$ $options$ $and$ $generates$ $the$ $Tweaks$ $app$ $user$ $interface$ $automatically$ $based$ $on$ $the$ $info$ $of$ $all$ $the$ $currently$ $installed$ $patches$ $provided$.

    In this way patches can easily add configuration but not clutter the standard webOS system user interface with all the configuration stuff (since usually you want to set it once and then forget about it). If tweaks app is not installed then the patches can just use their default values and they will still work.

    In future, we hope to have the tweaks database be part of the Palm Profile backup, so that when you doctor a device all your patch settings are automatically restored with your other Palm Profile settings.

    The official documentation for Tweaks can be found at:

    Application:Tweaks - WebOS Internals

    Sconix (@modeswitcher on twitter) is the lead developer for Tweaks.

    Brandon (oil, @DontBlameOil) and I assisted with the UI and service.

    The concept has been kicking around the WebOS Internals team for some months now

    you guys rock, as always. Let me be the first to point a bug (also submitted via twitter)

    if you have messaging "open in new card" = ON, open up a conversation in a new card and then tap on that original conversation from the messaging app, nothing happens (since the card is already open). Any way to force that to switch to the already-open conversation card?

    thanks for all your hard work!

    Hit the blue question mark. Tap on the tweak in question - it will then tell you the owner patch. Report the bug in the thread for that patch

    "The reason for this is that you have no patches with tweaks installed."
    I don't get it? This doesn't install tweaks? Only updates?

    When I was picked to try it out, I started flesh and wiped out all patches. Then installed one by one the ones needed.

    Wow, this sounds great. Can't wait to see the documentation, with it I could probably stick the sharing menu patch in Preware.
