Yes Jesse,

It's about supporting node-webkit as a new, different platform.
I see some great value added to a desktop platform :

- Really easy to debug (chromium dev tools integrated)
- Allow kiosk mode and other desktop integration which can be usefull in touch aware application.
- Allow packaging and distribution on 3 main desktop OS.

I think Cordova is mostly a bridge between HTML and Native APIs. Node-webkit enable a bridged
communication between Webkit and Node.JS so can be used as a command proxy for Cordova.

You also have the new packaged Chrome Apps which can be great to support too, I think.

I think a cordova-desktop repository could be a great place to try out theses platforms.


Cordialement.

No, we are talking about node-webkit OR appjs as another target platform to support, which
would mean we could build for apps for Windows, Linux, OSX desktop applications.
I think node-webkit is the more mature platform, but I have only glanced at both. Definitely
interesting.
