The webOS Ports team has been developing LuneOS for a long time now. It started after HP released webOS as an open source project in December of 2011. With monthly updates the LuneOS project now hosts a ton of awesome features as it draws nearer and nearer to daily driver status.
I wrote about testing apps for LuneOS several months ago. The TLDR version is there aren’t many current Enyo (think webOS 2.x and up) based apps that work with LuneOS. There are a LOT of Mojo (think webOS 1.x) apps for webOS out there but when HP open sourced webOS, Mojo was not included so that’s a no-go for LuneOS too. Bummer.
Will there be apps for LuneOS when it does reach daily driver abilities? Where will the apps come from?
webOS Nation’s forum user, TheOneill (author of the YouTube client fix patch for webOS), has tested and proven a solution for the now defunct Whatsapp client, MojoWhatsup for webOS. It involves using your computer and VNC on your device. It’s not pretty but it works.
Since the shutdown of the HP/Palm servers our ability to access webOS doctors, manuals, and other goodies that used to be up for the masses is pretty much non-existant. The good news is there’s a fix. Edit your hosts file!
