Your first look at Palm’s webOS SDK, Mojo

Thanks to one of our ninjas, we’ve got some shots of the inner-workings of the webOS SDK. For starters, everything is tested and previewed in the web browser (our shots are of the Mac version, so Safari), which bodes well for Palm’s “anyone who knows how to program in Javascrizzy can write an application”, line. We’re told that even in Safari, apps work just like they would on the actual device, and much like the iPhone Simulator, just in the web browser. This means scrolling and rubberband-man bouncing. Very cool and very sneaky. The SDK operates as a local server that serves up the web pages (applications), and you can hook into it from your local browser. We’re not going to lie — SDKs for the most part aren’t really our cup of tea — this whole thing reminds us of the iPhone web apps era. But, if you do seek more information, our ninja was gracious enough to field questions. So if you’re really interested in this, drop some comments, and we’ll pass them over and get them answered. Screenshots are in the gallery!
