Quasar+cordova+vue for android tv app
Hi, to the Quasar community. I need help with a starter kit or some useful resources where I can find useful info.
I want to build simple android tv app with quasar and have troubles with the question about tv controls. How can I build an app with remote TV controller? Maybe someone can send some examples with this stack. Thank you in advance.
I think with Quasar, you are entering unknown territory with building out TV controls or an app to control a TV. So, not much anyone can help you with.
The implementation possibilities vary by brand (e.g. LG remote acts as a mouse, many others don’t), it’s not been standardized much yet, and you can find specific js implementations left and right:
e.g.: on a Samsung you may want to use this: https://github.com/beejjacobs/node-samsung-remote
Maybe u can find a generic js library that can help you with keyboard nav (most remotes act as basic keyboards -arrows&keypad).
several hints here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Firefox_OS_for_TV/TV_remote_control_navigation
Please keep us posted as this would be a very interesting development road for Quasar.
Samsung+LG+Sony+Panasonic+Sharp = 66% market share (in 2014) of smart tv market
Samsung+LG+Sony = 55%
there’s also the case of tvOS:
and there’s already a cordova plugin and hints for Android TV here, maybe that’s a nice and easy starting point:
@EugeneNodeN00b I realise only now that your question was specifically for android tv. so my last post will probably be the most useful for you.
On a more general note, Sony seems to be embracing Android TV, so it leaves just Tizen and webos to be implemented to cover the majority of the market.
