Introduction to Gaia Redirect 3

Gaia is the user interface for Boot to Gecko (B2G); it's a set of Web applications that runs locally on a B2G device, emulator, desktop build, or Firefox build. All you need to know in order to add apps or make changes to Gaia are Web technologies like JavaScript, HTML, and CSS.

The Gaia lock screen

By default, the lock screen is enabled, and the default PIN to unlock the device is "0000". This most likely will change over time as this feature is fleshed out.

The default Gaia interface

The default interface in GaGaia Homeia, as seen here, is similar to what you see on most typical smartphones.

This image is obviously of a prerelease version of the operating system, with placeholder icons (and some test applications). The status bar at the top indicates the network on which the phone is operating (or "No SIM card" for a device without any network), the network strength, WiFi signal strength, battery level, and current time.

The middle area of the display shows icons for the applications; swiping left and right pages through screens of icons.

At the bottom of the screen is a dock with room for up to seven of your most commonly used applications. You can drag and drop apps to the dock from the middle area.

Gaia apps

The default suite of apps on Gaia are as follows — click on the links below to find out more about each app, such as how to use them, and how to modify them.

Video is a simple video player app that will play videos present on your Firefox OS device's storage media.
More TBD
