I recently won a Hackathon and the price was a Pebble time. I tried out the Pebble Time and instantly felt that these kind of devices have potential. I feel like a smart watch is an extension of myself. I will try to make a mind map app to extend my mind and become awesomer.
My first feeling using the Pebble Time API is that it’s hard to get a simple hello world. I will try to document how I wrote my first hello world on the Pebble time.
Since Pebble.JS is still in beta, I recommend watching Robert C Martins Clean Architecture lecture. If we have a clean architecture then we can decouple from the framework itself.
Step 1 – Pebble SDK
Download and install
Step 2 – Developer Connection:
Setup the developer connection, for more instructions go to:
Step 3 – Clone:
PebbleJS is at the writing time in Beta.
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:pebble/pebblejs.git
git clone https://github.com/pebble/pebblejs.git
Step 4: Build, install & run
Navigate to project map in a terminal or command prompt.
You need to build the project first. Then you need to install it. To do this, write:
pebble build pebble install --phone <ip>
You will find the ip to your phone in the developer window, for more info at advice step 1.
Step 5: Code
Editing the app.js is pretty straight forward.
Step 6: Debugging
Debugging can be done by listening to your phone or emulator. More information is available at: http://developer.getpebble.com/guides/pebble-apps/debugging/debugging-guide/
