We learnt about WebApps and How to Create one
What is a WebApps ?
A web application or web app is any program that runs in a web browser.
It is created in a browser-supported programming language
on a web browser to render the application.
So, 3 main components of WebApps
1. HTML (What To Show)
2. CSS (How to Show)
The The Basic blocks are Just “ultimate” using these three components
you can make anything like an basic app or even a game
we had hands-on session on all these components
Using these three web techniques we already created a webpage
but, how to convert this web page into a Firefox OS App
there is this magical file called The “manifesto file“
with the help of this File you can convert any web page into a web app
What is a Manifesto file ?
It is used to define extension and package-related data.
It is a metadata file that contains name-value pairs organized in different sections. If a JAR file is intended to be used as an executable file, the manifest file specifies the main class of the application.
Here is the Basic code representation of Manifesto File
“name”: “My App”,
“description”: “My elevator pitch goes here”,
“name”: “Your name or organization”,
A more detailed description on Manifesto file can be found here
An app made by one of the F.S.A. Akshay Sonawne was even uploaded to the marketplace that day, which is now in review.
But, Before Deploying the app on the market place you will need to have an Account created Just log-in into your account and deploy the Package
It may take 5-6 days for Reviewers to Review and Rate the app
And there you go your Firefox OS App will Be visible on the Firefox marketplace
Come let’s help young developers to learn new things deploy you own apps on Firefox marketplace, learn new things on Firefox marketplace
possibilities are endless you can even be a superhero in creating apps” 🙂
Have fun in what you do! 🙂
