Bangle.js App Loader Customisation

It's easy to make copies of the Bangle.js App Loader and customise them for your own purposes:

  • Your school/university might want a specific set of apps for a class
  • Your company might have a specific product
  • You might be providing Bangle.js to someone who wants an extremely simplified experience

Forking and Enabling GitHub pages

Follow the tutorial on Adding an app to the Bangle.js App Loader to get a GitHub fork set up with GitHub pages.

Your own App Loader should now be available on https://your_user_name.github.io/BangleApps/

Note: You can host the App Loader yourself, but it must be on an HTTPS server (not HTTP) for Web Bluetooth to work.

Adding and Removing apps

All the information on apps is stored in apps.json in the root directory of the BangleApps repository.

The simplest form of modification is to just remove the items from this file that you don't want.

  • Go to https://github.com/your_user_name/BangleApps
  • Click on apps.json
  • Click on the little pencil 'edit' icon in the top right
  • Delete all the JSON elements {...} containing apps you don't want - ensure that you don't have too many or too few commas between them.

Changing Default apps

The list of default apps installed when you click Install default apps is listed in defaultapps.json.

Simple remove or add app IDs from apps.json to modify it.

Changing Look and Feel

BangleApps is a standard HTML application, so you can simple edit index.html or the CSS files to change how it looks.
