Create desktop applications with AppJS

Desktop applications usually have more advantages over web applications. The big differences are mainly speed, they can reach file systems, they can work in the background as a process or show notifications and many more. The big problem is that is quite hard to code a desktop application because it requires non-web programming languages (C, C++, etc – there are exceptions also).

One of the applications or resource that can help you create desktop applications using only web technologies (HTML, CSS, JavaScript) is AppJs. The lets call it framework, uses Chromium for the core (supports all HTML5 APIs) and the popular Node.js as the backbone.

Unfortunately the framework is in early stage of development so only Linux and Windows ports are functional, MAC support being implemented as we speak.
