      In MEN-2363 we create a new onboarding flow using application updates, which will replace today's full-image updates.

      As part of this we need a demo application update that the user can deploy and verify on his device. One idea is a webserver (e.g. using python) that displays a nice welcome-to-mender page once you access your device URL/IP and displays some device-specific information (like device name, etc) – so the user feels ownership. It could even contain the next steps for onboarding (edit this webpage on your laptop, build new artifact, upload it, deploy it).

      This will result in a reusable Artifact that is out of the box in Mender server & Hosted Mender.

      User value (why)

      • For new users to more easily get started with real application deployments using Mender

      Acceptance criteria

      • A demo application is created, it starts a webserver and displays a web page (ideally custom for the device/Mender configuration) when device is accessed
      • Mender Artifact (.mender file) that contains a demo application for onboarding
      • The Artifact is portable, it can be used on most development boards (simple, few dependencies)
      • The Artifact is present in the Mender server OOTB, for new demo server installations and Hosted Mender tenants
