The session presented by Andy Idsinga (@pithy_uji) and Ujwal Paidipathi (@andyidsinga) seems like pure wizardry. The idea being you get your web code HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Web API calls, embeddable code etc and then convert it to an application through programmable API's for MeeGo and AppUp.


For a simple App you only require a index.html and then a icon.png. This is the way that the code transverses this process:


Here is the Video:

Give it a shot and let us know how it handles your code. Full information found here. Full session summary below.

Session Summary:
At the Intel AppUp Developer Program we’ve developed a new tool to help web application developers transform their HTML and JavaScript code into native MeeGo applications – AppUp encapsulator. In this session we’ll walk through building a MeeGo app with some existing web code and mashup cool services like google maps and youtube. Then we’ll demo the app on MeeGo tablet and netbook devices we bring to the session. Finally, take this opportunity to dive into a technical Q&A about web app and MeeGo with the developers who built the tool! Attendee Takeaway: • Learn to create MeeGo apps using HTML and JavaScript. • Learn how to sell your MeeGo web apps on the Intel AppUp center

Session Abstract:
The Intel AppUp™ encapsulator is a web based tool that makes AppUp ready MeeGo apps out of your web code.

The Intel AppUp™ encapsulator embeds your web code into a native application wrapper (aka hybrid app) and then creates a MeeGo installation package. You’ll get an RPM file which can be submitted to the Intel AppUp(sm) center. The native application wrapper integrates the Intel AppUp SDK for store authorization and QT WebKit which provides the HTML5 and Javascript engines that execute and render your web app code.

You pretty much build your web code like you would other web apps – html, css and javascript, images and AJAX all work like they would if they were served up from a website.

In the session, we’ll show you how easy it is to mashup cool web services like youtube and google maps.

Why would a developer use this tool over just making their own website / web app?

From a business standpoint end users find your MeeGo app in the context of the Intel AppUp store. This may increase the likelihood that they’ll have a purchase mentality over a standard website where they may have a “free” mentality.
The Intel AppUp(sm) center makes selling your web app possible!

From an end user experience standpoint, your app gets a dedicated UI that you control instead of a generic web browser ui. Your app can run and work offline just as well as it can when online – there’s no requirement to have a constant connection to a website.

How do these MeeGo apps look and feel to the end user?
End users find and install your MeeGo app on the Intel AppUp(sm) Center just like any other app. Once installed, end users launch your app just like they would any other app on the device. Your app gets its own, dedicated UI - no web browser involved!
