      Description

      node-webkit is an app runtime based on Chromium and node.js. You can write native apps in HTML and Javascript with node-webkit. It also lets you to call Node.js modules directly from DOM and enables a new way of writing native applications with all Web technologies.

      • Apps written in modern HTML5, CSS3, JS and WebGL.
      • Complete support for Node.js APIs and all its third party modules.
      • Good performance: Node and WebKit runs in the same thread: Function calls are made straightforward; objects are in the same heap and can just reference each other;
      • Easy to package and distribute apps.
      • Available on Linux, Mac OSX and Windows

      Node Webkit has some incompatibilities problems with Requirejs, we must fix these problems using small hacks and also create a package.json file describing the app to allow anyone to run the app in a Desktop computer using Node Webkit
