Browser as a view using WebUI
« on: June 09, 2023, 11:18:50 pm »
WebUI is a lightweight portable lib witch helps you to use any web browser as GUI, with your preferred language in the backend and HTML5 in the frontend.

I made a wrapper for webui on free pascal, tested it, made several examples, everything works great.

This is an analogue of the library WebView that was written about in this topic

I used Qooxdoo as a JavaScript framework in the browser to replace LCL on regular desktop forms

Has anyone else worked in this direction? Are there any similar working schemes for using a browser with RIA as a representation for desktop applications?

I have tried VirtualUI here: https://www.cybelesoft.com/thinfinity/virtualui/.

Installing this, I can run my Windows application in webbrowser. It was not bad, but not using it yet.

I'd like to look into WebUI.

Yes, I watched this product, it's more about virtualization and has nothing to do with native development of web interfaces with a backend in a programming language other than js.
Using a library like WebUI is a natural intermediate step before moving to native development using pas2js and webassembly, which awaits us in the future, according to this roadmap
