Submitted by Aditya (@netroy) (proposing) on Friday, 23 December 2011
This is a proposal requesting for someone to speak on this topic. If you’d like to speak, leave a comment.
Section: Default Technical level: Beginner Session type: Lecture
Introduction to varions JS binding for desktop toolkits. Not going to cover any mobile related content.
JS is a language designed around Async concepts.
With Closures & Callbacks, JS is an excellant choice for building apps that have a lot of user-interaction and/or network/disk IO.
The talk should cover
- WebView wrappers like Titanium Appcelerator.
- GTK3 JS binding like GJS or Seed .. (Gnome-Shell uses GJS)
So If you a web-developer & experienced enough with Client-Side or Server-Side JS, & don't like that particular app on your linux machine, Its about time you built your own.
You don't need to learn Python, Vala, C etc. just to build desktop apps anymore.
