Hi I'm new to RDK. I've been looking for solution to use web apps for control the settop boxes, such as firmware upgrade, backend management and so on.

The wiki and documents have very few information about RDK's Javascript support. I've seen webpage examples using "http://localhost:port/cgi-bin/..." to control DVR. Is cgi-bin the only way to communicate with low level processes in RDK? Or is there a common javascript library that we can use? Thanks in advance.

  1. Service Manager is the RDK Component which Provides a JavaScript interface for Web applications as well as interacts with the low level RDK modules.

    It has functionalities to interact with sub-systems such as Home Network, Display setting, etc. Also please refer RDK Browser application for referring to example usage of Service Manager APIs.
