A Wristed Development
Developers rejoice - we’ve released the first version of our SDK 4 developer preview! This SDK enables you to start building applications for the new Diorite platform (Pebble 2), and includes a set of new APIs for interacting with the 4.0 user experience.
There is a lot to take in, so we’re here to help break down what’s new and exciting for our favorite developer community!
This is a guest blog post from Powerstrap, the team behind Pal, a GPS and battery extending smartstrap that launched on Kickstarter this week:
Powerstrap is incredibly excited to share that our Kickstarter for the world’s first GPS and battery Smartstrap for Pebble Time and Pebble Time Steel watches is now live! We have been working very closely with Pebble to provide the best strap for this amazing community since 2014 and the time (pun intended) is finally here to share it with everyone!
After many morning coding sessions on the weekends, Pebble.js has been updated to support the Chalk platform (Pebble Time Round). This update is available in CloudPebble, and ready for you to work with right in your browser with no setup!
Supporting Chalk required a ton of bug crushing to become compatible with the new 3.0 style status bar, changes to accommodate reduced memory on the 3.x Aplite platform, adding new features such as text flow and paging, and making it easier to target multiple platforms by adding a feature detection API.
This is a guest blog post from Mike Jipping, professor of Computer Science at Hope College (Michigan, USA), who has been writing an open source book which teaches the C programming language using Pebble smartwatches.
If you want to learn to program using the C programming language, you have lots of choices. C has been around a while, so there are many textbooks and lots of Web sites that have information on the language. Most are very general, with examples and projects that you could run on any general purpose computer. Very few are tailored to embedded systems and none are targeted at smartwatches, until now, that is.
