BlackBerry Widget SDK 1.0 Beta 1 released!

We are pleased to introduce the BlackBerry® Widget SDK 1.0 Beta 1, which consists of the BlackBerry Widget Packager 1.0 Beta 1, a BlackBerry Device Simulator, documentation and code samples.

 

The BlackBerry Widget Packager 1.0 Beta 1 is a new tool that allows web developers to package up their web assets into BlackBerry Widgets (small, discrete, standalone web applications that use HTML, CSS and JavaScript). A BlackBerry Widget looks, behaves and has the same security mechanisms as a native BlackBerry application. BlackBerry Widgets can be installed on a BlackBerry smartphone like any native application and can be extended to use device-specific information and data using the BlackBerry Widget APIs.

 

Downloads, documentation and samples can be found here:  http://na.blackberry.com/eng/developers/devbetasoftware/widgetsdk.jsp

Re: BlackBerry Widget SDK 1.0 Beta 1 released!

As an FYI, we now have an updated version of the JavaScript API reference.

 

It is now much more topical where the API's are grouped based on functionality.  The content is easier to read, and we also list all of the <feature> elements you need to declare in your config.xml file for each API you wish to use.

 

Please check it out:

The new API reference is much nicer than the old one! Thanks!

 

When will we see the next version of the Widget Packager? Would love to have the known bugs fixed...
