Open Source Docs for Newbies
« on: February 14, 2014, 11:40:10 AM »
Is there any documentation for newbies on learning how to customize your own studio lite and player?

All the docs I see look like only a reference to the modules code.

I'm looking for a tutorial like doc that walks you through on how to do it.

Anything like that?

Thanks

The StudioLite open source is definitely designed for developers and all docs are set for that type of audience.
However I do have a simple solution for you, hire an outsourcing guy from www.freelancer.com
You will find lots of inexpensive talent that will be able to help and re-factor / customize the app.
Just look for a JavaScript developer with experience in Backbone framework... simple as that!

Regards.

I downloaded the files from github and posted them to my server, thinking that's all I needed to do, but when I open the studiolite.html from my server, I dont see the login fields.  I just want to see if I can get the studio lite to run the way it is from our server. Can I do that?

Here's the link: http://www.quikmedia.tv/sslite/studiolite.html

All I did was download the files and upload them.

you are using an old version of the git repo, download new version from GitHub and re-copy to your server.

Look at the bottom of App: version 0.6.347 as of today.
You may need to update once more as we just added version numbering.
We release builds daily so I recommend automating the process.

on my page it looks like the where the build number should be, it's showing ":BUILD:"

Like I said I downloaded the ZIP file with files and uploaded them directly to a directory on our server. But for some reason it's not working like yours.  I'm pretty sure I downloaded the current version.

Still stumped

yes the :BUILD: is something we have internally on our server so you won't see that on your side.
You can just remove it from the HTML, and you can check our studio for reference on what is the latest build number.
FYI, the build changes a few times a day as this is active development so I wouldn't even worry about the number and instead just automate a process to auto pull from Git on weekly basis...

Back to my initial problem.
the login fields are not showing on my server

Here's the link: http://www.quikmedia.tv/sslite/studiolite.html

the :BUILD: number is probably not showing because there's something wrong.

What is the problem?
