Tizen and HTML5

The Tizen SDK is a comprehensive set of tools for developing Tizen web and native applications. Tizen is based on the Linux kernel and the GNU C Library implementing the Linux API. It targets a very wide range of devices including smartphones, tablets, in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) devices, smart TVs, PCs, smart cameras, wearable computing (such as Smartwatch), Blu-ray Players, Printers and Smart Home Appliances. Its purpose is to offer a consistent user experience across devices, allowing developers to use HTML5 and related Web technologies to write applications that run on supported devices.

In October 2014, the Worldwide Web Consortium elevated the HTML5 specification to ‘recommendation’ status , giving it the group’s highest level of endorsement, which is to becoming a standard. The W3C also introduced Application Foundations with the announcement of the HTML5 recommendation. Open Web Platform (OWP) is a set of technologies for developing distributed applications with the greatest interoperability among different terminal devices. HTML5 plays a key role to that.

In this framework, Tizen Association works closely with the Linux Foundation which runs the Tizen open source project (Tizen.org), with a focus on platform development and delivery.

Samsung, a member of Tizen association, has launched Tizen-based Samsung TVs and has released also the relative Tizen SDK and Caph SDK, in order to support the development of web applications and promote in the market device independent apps. Both SDKs are available for downloading at http://www.samsungdforum.com/
