Create a TV Web App

Connecting a web app with the JavaScript bridge is incredibly simple and requires a minimum amount of effort. First, make sure you've got the right scripts imported.

<script src="//www.gstatic.com/cast/sdk/libs/receiver/2.0.0/cast_receiver.js" language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="connect_bridge.min.js" language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript"></script>
After scripts are imported, it is a simple matter to get your app configured. No matter what platform you are running on, the proper setup will occur to enable your web app.
window.connectManager = new connectsdk.ConnectManager();
window.connectManager.init();

Of course, if you actually want to enable any functionality in your web app, you will have to do a little more work. Integration with Connect SDK happens on two different levels.

Media playback and control

window.mediaElement = document.getElementById('media');
window.connectManager.setMediaElement(window.mediaElement);

Bi-directional communication

Receiving messages

window.connectManager.on("message", function(data) {
    console.log("Got message from sender " + data.from);
    console.log("Got message from mobile device " + data.message);
});

Sending messages

window.connectManager.sendMessage(to, "This is a test message");
window.connectManager.sendMessage(to, { "message" : "This is a JSON test message" });

window.connectManager.broadcastMessage("This is a test message");
window.connectManager.broadcastMessage({ "message" : "This is a JSON test message" });
