    Post Synth Owl HTML5 front-end for In-Vehicle Computing

    I would like to announce Synth Owl public beta, an open source "Car PC" front-end.

    SynthOwl is a HTML5 framework mainly used for automotive "connected car" front-end for mobile computing.
    It is based on the microkernel architecture for scalable, message & event driven HTML5 framework.

    Requirements:
    Based on HTML5, it should be compatible with any modern OS (Windows, OSX, Linux) with a LAMP/WAMP compatible web browser.
    Download of TileStache server to serve maps will come soon. Watch this space.
    Running GPSD is optional, but recommended.

    Core functionality includes:
    Maps & Navigation (OSM maps working, no turn-by-turn nav yet)
    Media Player (local html5 audio player)
    Weather Feed (from weatherzone.com.au)
    Web Browser (in progress)
    Settings (in progress)

    It is currently available only as source at the following GIT repository:
    https://bitbucket.org/trippah/synth-owl/

    We are still in beta stage and currently looking for contributors!
    If you are a technical documentation writer, html programmer or a network engineer who would like to join this project please let me know.
    There is a variety of cool things that need to be built. It has been tested on Linux and we are looking for Windows, OSX, VM testers.
    There is plenty of wikis that need to be published.

    Any feedback below would be appreciated.

    You should look at the Automotive Message Broker... Would make your low end stuff a lot easier...
