Palm pulls back the curtain on webOS technical details

"We got some early clues about the platform SDK from a developer shortly after the launch, but those few tantalizing hints weren't enough to satisfy the techno-lust of those of us who are eagerly awaiting the public SDK launch. Fortunately, Palm has decided to give us a sweet hit of the good stuff with new technical details that have been published at the Palm Developer Network website.

"The new documentation is the first chapter of a book about webOS that is being authored by Palm CTO Mitch Allen in collaboration with the O'Reilly publishing company. The chapter provides a basic overview of the webOS platform and introduces its intriguing application model and some of the basic terminology behind its user interface paradigms.

"Palm's webOS leverages standards-based web technologies and allows third-party developers to build complete applications using a mix of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. It uses a custom JavaScript framework called Mojo and bundles some popular third-party JavaScript libraries, including Prototype."
