Joost API Revealed

August 30, 2021

In case you missed the recent post in the Joost forum the new Joost API web site was made available on Aug 29th 2007. You will find below a copy of the post:

There have been a lot of changes and improvements to Joost recently. One that you might not have noticed is that with the newest release – Joost 0.12.0 – a new Widget API is available that makes it possible for third parties to create their own Joost widgets. To activate this right now, go to the Advanced Settings widget in the Widget Menu and check the box to enable the Widget Manager.

If you want to start playing with the API, you can visit our new development website at (login: widgetarian, password: wonderland42). Watch that space over the coming weeks and months, as it will contain an increasing volume of documentation and tutorials for the Joost Widget platform. IRC users can also join the #joost-dev channel on to chat with some Joost developers.

We also have created a public mailing list that developers can use to discuss their widget projects and get help from one another and the Joost team. Even if you have just the slightest interest in Joost Widgets, be sure to join to stay on top of the latest developments.

Details for this group are as follows:

We eagerly look forward to seeing how we can all work together to add new features and functionality to TV!
