Scope of the project

The point of this project is to provide platform for developing desktop and TV applications in a way which is familiar to web developers but not necessarily the same.

The table below provides a bit more info but in general:

  • you are expected to use modern IDE, preferrably with type-checking because we are doing very little validation
  • deprecated/exotic features are generally not supported at all
  • if it can be easily replaced with JS it's probably out-of-scope for now
  • popular libraries are expected to run fine eventually (if not already)
  • there's always WebView if you need it
