  • WebApp to DesktopApp with Node-Webkit
  • Time: Wednesday @ 4:00pm | Room N-123

Node-Webkit combines a Chromium runtime environment with node.js to provide an easy way to create a Desktop App with Web technologies. While it is easy to run local apps in a browser, necessary security restrictions prohibitaccess to local file systems. In addition, variations in browsers complicate web apps and can make the result unpredictable.

Node-Webkit provides a standalone executable for Mac, Windows or Linux, with consistent behavior on all platforms and more control over the user experience, while enabling the use of node.js features and libraries.

My presentation will include an overview of Node-Webkit, an explanation of how to use it, and a demonstration of an example app built with Node-Webkit.
