Tizen Common Project

Strictly speaking, Tizen:Common is not a "vertical" profile. It's the common base for other profiles (IVI, Mobile, Wearable, TV and other forthcoming profiles).

It provides a common platform for developers and integrators.

The available software is split into several modules:

  • Base: The base system, including the usual system tools, connectivity and security
  • Wayland subprofile: Base + wayland, weston, crosswalk, Tizen web framework, in a pure wayland environment
  • Base-minimal: The core system reduced to its most simple look (no UI, ttys only)
  • Development tools: Toolchain, developer tools
  • QA tools: The specific QA tools for manual and unmanned tests

NB: it was named 'Tizen:Generic' until end of Q1 2014
