Mobile icon Although the Tizen project has officially replaced MeeGo as the mobile operating system that Intel and the Linux Foundation are supporting, some MeeGo developers are still pushing MeeGo forward, especially as it is available on the Nokia N9 and N950. Developer Mike Sheldon has gone further than most by producing the first public release of TizMee, an application which lets Tizen apps, and other HTML5 apps, run on MeeGo-based devices.

In a recent blog posting, Sheldon has given details of the application which is based around the port of Apache Cordova to Qt. Sheldon has taken this base and then implemented the Tizen specific APIs as C or JavaScript-based Cordova APIs. In a video, he demonstrates TizMee running Tizen specific API calls, HTML5 games and Tizen UI components:

TizMee is still early in its development, as denoted by its version 0.1 status, but Sheldon has made available binaries for MeeGo Harmattan (for the N9/N950) and for Nemo Mobile in his own repository. Code for the Apache 2.0-licensed TizMee is available from a Gitorious repository.
