I think it’s a great idea to make this open source and allow it to become a competitor to LibreElec/KODI, etc.
However, KODI has a great user-base as it actually has something to offer.
I’ve just build and installed WebOS on my RPi3 and find it only offers the Youtube app. I cannot even connect it to the Android LG TV remote app.
I don’t understand why other apps available for LG TV’s are not available for webOSose. This way nobody is going to use it.
I don’t see why I should start developing apps for a platform nobody is going to use, when there’s things like KODI.
