Thomas's Talk

Fugu APIs at the example of the SVGcode app

In this talk, I will show at the example of the open-source application SVGcode ( what the modern Web is capable of. In 2022, Web apps can be installed onto the device like regular platform-specific apps and blend in with the rest of your apps naturally. Web apps can become file handlers—or even the default file handler—for files, so you can doubleclick a file in your file explorer and the Web app in charge will handle it. Web apps can tightly integrate with the operating system, so you can share files to and from them. And of course Web apps can read and write texts and images to the operating system's clipboard. At the end of this talk, you will walk out with a buzzing head full of ideas, but fret not, I will leave you with enough pointers for further reading so you can look up the details after the talk from the comfort of your home.
