Tutorial & APIs of IME:


To create applications that run on a TV screen, you need:

  • Samsung TV connected to the Internet
  • SDK or a text editor for creating HTML, JavaScript and CSS files (using Samsung Smart TV SDK is recommended)

Development Environment

Use Samsung Smart TV SDK to create the application. You can also use the emulator provided with the SDK to debug and test the application before uploading it in your TV. Later, you can run the application on a TV; see Testing Your Application on a TV. Note that applications may perform better on the TV than on the emulator.

You can find general instructions for creating applications in Implementing Your Application Code.

Copy all the files from the supplied application source archive into the SDK application folder, except those in the JavaScript folder.
