In short Luna Next is a approach to recreate the webOS user interface based on future ready technologies like Qt5 and Wayland. The Luna UI as part of the Open webOS project caused us a lot of problems in porting it to other devices without a lot of rework so we decided to recreate the UI completely. Recreation doesn't mean we're dropping all the code. We will reuse code as wherever possible to reduce the amount of work.

We're doing the work in a agile mine and have a board at

If you want to help us with the vision please contact us!
