Running webinos

Running webinos takes four things:

  1. a working environment
  2. the webinos code
  3. install dependencies (defer on each platform)
  4. compiled webinos code
  5. the right command line

Setup your environment

Webinos runs on the top of nodejs. First install nodejs by following instructions on

Get the code

Change the directory to somewhere convenient, for example your projects directory:

Then, clone the webinos source code from our git repository at github by issuing:

git clone


Install dependencies

Follow instructions for each specific platforms. Each platform has specific instructions that should be followed.   



Compile the project

Compiling requires installing all dependencies and then run

npm update -g npm
npm install -g node-gyp 
npm install -g grunt
npm install

Please note npm install is only required for first time installation. If you have all dependencies, npm install will also compile webinos modules

In case npm install fails due to missing dependencies then use:

node-gyp configure
node-gyp build

Launch commands

Stay inside the main directory and optionally, start the PZH.

PZH is required to be started if not using PZH hosted at

Windows: node webinos_pzh.js
Linux: ./webinos_pzh.js or webinos_pzh

Webinos PZH has following two options. Please note these are optional:

To get the demo to work properly, I needed to accept the bad SSL certificate not only on https://localhost:9000/, but also manually on https://localhost:8900/ (for the WebSocket connection); it was failing silently otherwise.

for those with fresh, not really dev-oriented ubuntus, a list of errors I've encountered and how to fix them (except for the first one: command -> error -> fix):
no node-gyp -> sudo npm install -g node-gyp

node-gyp configure -> "No package 'gnome-keyring-1' found" -> sudo apt-get install libgnome-keyring-dev

node-gyp build -> "CXX(target) Release/
../webinos/api/discovery/src/ fatal error: bluetooth/bluetooth.h: No such file or directory" -> sudo apt-get install libbluetooth-dev
node-gyp build -> "CXX(target) Release/
../webinos/api/discovery/src/ fatal error: obexftp/obexftp.h: No such file or directory" -> sudo apt-get install libobexftp0-dev

npm install -> "../src/mdns.hpp:15:20: fatal error: dns_sd.h: No such file or directory" -> sudo apt-get install libavahi-compat-libdnssd-dev
npm install -> "../src/Canvas.h:19:25: fatal error: cairo/cairo.h: No such file or directory" -> sudo apt-get install libcairo2-dev

Also: it is implied to use but there's no explanation on how to do it; especially "webinos_pzp provides one option" seems not to be true anymore. 1 hour later I give up.

I installed webinos for windows, completed everything successfully and it looks nothig like this tutorial.  For a start you cannot access it from https://localhost.  When you look at the "about" in the webinos window it says you can use localhost:53510 which I did and this has ntohing but a very simple menu and a list of installed apps, of whihc there is only one, "Webinos Renderer WebGL demo"
There is nothing at all like the personal dashboard, the configuration windows etc shown above.
This is the problem with collaborative projects.  Somneone changes the install file and then all of the dosumentation is useless. Thsi is for an application only launched last week.
Can anyone sort this out?
