WebOS is a web-centric platform. The platform consists of Open WebOS and Enyo, both of which are open source projects. The platform relies on the Linux kernel, and various components to generate bootable image. Openembedded is used for compiling various components, and building the final image. Extensive customization was made to OpenEmbedded to accommodate WebOS requirements. This paper describes the use of Openembedded to build WebOS, including the customization work.
