Pebble SDK 2.0 is the current and most up to date environment to build applications for Pebble. It includes a C compiler, a JavaScript environment, iOS and Android libraries, Documentation and Examples.

For developers who are new to the Pebble OS platform, as well as those who’ve developed existing Pebble apps, this Developer Guide For Building Pebble Apps should provide you with a deeper understanding of how to create, build and deploy your Pebble apps on iOS and Android running Pebble OS.

Pebble.js applications run on your phone. They have access to all the resources of your phone (internet connectivity, GPS, almost unlimited memory, etc). Because they are written in JavaScript they are also perfect to make HTTP requests and connect your Pebble to the internet. 

Online Pebble Development. Write apps without dealing with Linux, virtual machines, compilers, or Python.

  • On Windows, Myo Connect is launched by running the Myo Connect.exe file.

  • On Mac OS X, Myo Connect is launched by running the Myo Connect application at the root of the SDK.

Both SDKs can be found on the downloads page:

The UP Platform documentation provides information related to establishing and maintaining an API connection with UP. The purpose of this API is to enable the exchange of select data in order to extend and augment the UP user experience and support complementary services. This can include data aggregation and visualization, gaming, marketing, rewards provisioning, and more.

Key principles governing the use of the UP API:

  • The data belongs to the user. We are stewards of the data and have an obligation to protect it and use it responsibly.

  • Data can only be collected with explicit user permission. Only collect what you need and only use it as you say you will.

  • User must have a mechanism to disable access and to request that any collected data be deleted.

Use of the UP API is governed by the UP API Terms Of Service. By using the API, you agree to the TOS, available for your review.

An introduction to the UP platform is available in PDF format here: Jawbone Platform Introduction
