- Thread-topic: Tools for Mobile Web (TMW) and Blinki
What about the Webtools Platform. If TMW is focused on
development-time tooling, shouldn't it be perhaps an incubator under WTP and
plug into the WTP infrastructure? - Explaining relationship between TMW and WTP
in the proposal might also be a good idea.

I talked with Eugene Ostroukhov for more details about the
relationship between TMW and Blinki:
Although, Tools for Mobile Web and Blinki have a bit of overlap, they are
mostly separate, but complementary projects.
The short explanation is - think of ATF vs. JSDT. In the case of the two
projects, Blinki would be ATF, providing run-time and debugging services
while TMW will provide development-time services including (but not limited
1. Web application project creation and initial contents.
2. Mobile runtime-specific extensions for JSDT (our contribution will
include support for WRT API and we are investigating adding others like
PhoneGap, BONDI, JIL, etc.)
3. Application packaging (TMW initially supports WRT packaging) and
deployment (TMW supports deployment using Bluetooth)
TMW's preview and debugging currently relies on external Chrome
installation and is based on Chrome Developer Tools. Currently Blinki focuses on
better integration of the Chrome/WebKit with Eclipse. From the very start we
hoped to replace external Chrome with Blinki's code (atm we really need code on
all three major desktop platforms).
Blinki's Chrome/WebKit integration has broader potential than only for
mobile tools. Tools for Mobile Web under Sequoyah is focused specifically on
mobile device developers' tooling needs.

There is definitely some overlap between TMW and Blinki. In
some sense, TMW could be considered a reboot of Blinki.
The focus of
the two projects is not exactly the same. Blinki was very focused on the
deployment piece of Web development, where TMW is more of an integration
project pulling together various open source components to produce a full IDE
for mobile web developers.
I'll make the fix to the mentor
section. Any other volunteers?
