Getting started with Pebble SDK and Rocky.js

Last updated: January 6th 2017

A month after publishing this post, Pebble was acquired by Fitbit and if you haven’t seen my reaction on Twitter, I’ll have you know that I’m not very happy about it. Fitbit has vowed to ensure all active Pebble devices will stay running through 2017, however with all things I am skeptical.

From Dec 8th 2016 on, here be dragons.


tl;dr: I built and published my first watchface using RockyJS, available on the Pebble app store! I wouldn’t mind if you went there gave it a big ole’ ❤ 😁

The source is also available on github.

I owned a Fitbit Charge HR, but I grew out of it. Wanting something else, the Pebble Time device seemed to fit my checklist of “wants and needs”. The hackability of the Pebble, the community, and the ecosystem are what drew me to it. I wasn’t a fan of the original device using a black and white e-ink display, but when the colour e-ink display was announced I became invested.
