Running your modified app

To access APIs:
  1. Enable Ripple for your modified "Hello World" app by opening your it in your Google Chromium browser and clicking the Ripple button followed by Enable, if it's not currently enabled. This should reload the page in the Ripple emulator.
  2. From the Platforms box on the left-hand side, ensure that the Platform setting is set to QNX CAR. After the page reloads, you should see the HMI console in the center of the screen with your modified app that contains the new extension you just created.

You can now access all of the APIs on the HMI.

On the right-hand side of the screen, you'll find Ripple extensions that let you simulate HMI system information. For example, if you change the volume from within Ripple, your app will receive the same event that would occur in the vehicle. You can use the user interface to simulate system events and to access all of the APIs from your app. In most cases, you'll receive hard-coded data responses to your commands, but the behavior will be the same as the in-car experience.
