Subject [jira] [Commented] (COR-10) Port to linux (using webkit and Firefox)
Date Sun, 18 Jan 2015 20:37:34 GMT


jan iversen commented on COR-10:

I think we are mixing two issues here.

I agree with peter, that if the editor is hosted on a web server it must be useable by all
modern browsers.

But that is not the case I was describing. I was describing the offline model (like UXwrite),
here I would not like to start a web server in the background (I am not really sure we could
do that easily on e.g. IOS). For the offline model, I would like to have 1 program (exe or
similar) that I install and start.

The offline model can be made pretty simple by using the libraries available for firefox,
IE and safari (do not know if they are in different flavors MacOS and IOS). My question was
merely can we (only for the offline model) cut corners and only do it with the firefox libraries.
Firefox libraries can live in parallel with other browsers so that is not a problem. Firefox
libraries are opensource so it is also not a problem to deliver them (if needed) as part of
a convenience binary.

For the web server version, we would not use any of the browser libraries, but embed docFormats
in e.g. python which works well with javascript.
