Booting script

xAPI requires initialization of communication between a lesson and the xAPI server. Configuration JSON is created but it requires manual addition of the endpoint and courseIRI keys by a user. xAPI object is created at the lesson's start after the icplayer application loading is finished.

var player;
var start;
var xapi;
var semiResponsiveLayoutChooser;
var userAgent = window.navigator.userAgent;
var viewPort = document.querySelector("meta[name=viewport]");

var tincanCfg = {
    entry : "ab-initio",
    lessonIRI: "5772986137968640",
    lessonTitle: "Copy of Copy of NG 2. poglavlje",
    lessonDescription: "",
    actor: {

    // endpoint: ...
    // courseIRI: ...

function icOnAppLoaded(){
    player = icCreatePlayer('_icplayer');
        cfg = xAPI.configFromParams(tincanCfg);
        xapi = new xAPI(cfg);
        $('#_icplayer').html('xAPI initialization returned the following error:</br>' + err +
                '</br>Please refer to /doc/page/Content-output for more details');

            var state = result.state.contents;
            location = state.location;
