WebView for mobile platforms on steroids
What is Croxit?
Croxit is a cross-platform Web View implementation for mobile and Dektop platforms for Haxe. It's intended to easily provide the deployment of rich interfaces in a cross-platform environment, like PhoneGap (Apache Cordova), but with plenty of advantages
Why should I use it?
If you need to create rich user interfaces that must work on a cross platform way with ease, your best bet is to use HTML5. Croxit provides the base for it. If you are a web developer, Croxit provides not only a familiar way to write applications (client/server based), but it provides a fully functional environment to be able to deploy the very same code in both a web server and a local mobile self-contained version.
What are the advantages?
Well, first of all, it's written in Haxe :-)
- It's native: leverage native performances and be free to implement native interoperabilities without the hassle (and sometimes prohibitive cost) of object serialization.
Right now, we are in early alpha, and the only supported mobile platform is iOs. An Android version is on the way using Haxe's Java target, and a desktop version with Webkit is on its way as well!
Read the code examples, and get coding! :)
- As a platform limitation of iOs WebView, there can't be any absolute paths in your code. The issue is that we're on file:// namespace, so absolute paths will refer to iOs' own root
