    I’ve heard of the idea of creating Apps with HTML 5. is this really possible just html5 ? or is it Javascript and other stuff as wells, and how good are these apps actually?

    Has anyone found any solid articles on this topic?

    I’m just curious to learn about them, maybe not how to do them yet, but just about them.

    thanks in advance.


    As in Web Apps (Browser Based) or Native (Device Based)?

    There is: and


    I recommend backbone.js to you.
    This model needs javascript knowlege, though.

    If you learn backbone.js, you’ll be able to
    create such web application with only front
    end skills.


    @attilahhajzer Various platforms are coming out that support native application authored in traditional web technologies. For instance, Windows 8 introduced the ability to author Windows Store Apps in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. It is literally just like building a website, only easier (since these apps target a single browser).

    Firefox has their own OS as well, which you can author apps for in web-based languages. Chrome has extensions, which are practically applications. And the list keeps going on and on. If you want to get to the point where you can build apps for these environments, build a bunch of websites. You’ll use all the same skills.
