Dev Community Ports BlackBerry 10 WebWorks Packager to Linux

BlackBerry 10 WebWorks Linux

The grassroots effort RIM is raising in the developer community is really paying off. The latest example is a community developed port of the BlackBerry 10 WebWorks Packager for Linux. This is a port of the current 1.0.1.17 SDK that is available for Mac and Windows with tweaks to make it work on Linux. Since RIM does have a native SDK or Linux (which it is rereleasing) I am hoping they will look at the changes the community has made to bring official support to Linux.

Check out the post on BBOS announcing the port of BlackBerry 10 WebWorks packager for Linux. You can find the full source in GitHub and the download also at BBOS.

  1. Here’s how difficult that would be.

    Copy the files to a Linux machine.

    Run the main script that starts it.

    Seeing as it was built in Node, which is completely platform agnostic, well, not a big deal.

    • Exactly! I was excited the first time I saw the new tools on github, only to be scratching my head at release time since things like node.js are developed primarily on Linux and are usually a bitch to make work on Windows.

  2. Hey Blade,
    I didn’t dig into it all that much. The Node base does make it seem like it could easily be cross platform. Any idea why RIM did not just claim compatibility from the start? Did they just lazy out on writing the documentation?

  3. @blade: it may be easy but the fact that someone took some time to do it speaks and bodes well for RIM – they have developers that support them. For example, not to be mean or anything but you certainly didn’t take the time to do it did you?
