Calling all web app developers…we’ve got something for you!

The Intel AppUp℠ developer program is excited to announce a new opportunity for web app developers to transform web apps into Intel AppUp℠ center apps. This opportunity, called Intel AppUp™ encapsulator, allows web app developers to expand their customer base and revenue potential by making an app from their existing web code that is compatible and available for the Intel AppUp℠ center.

How does this work? The Intel AppUp™ encapsulator embeds the web code into a native application wrapper (a hybrid app) and then creates installer packages. The native application wrapper integrates the Intel AppUp™ SDK for store authorization and QT WebKit which provides the HTML5 and Javascript engines that execute and render the web app code. After talking with one of the developers, Andy Idsinga, I got so excited because Andy said that this process is relatively simply and doesn’t require anything special to get the web code to work with the Intel AppUp™ encapsulator. In fact, developers can use their own web APIs, 3rd Party APIs, and even other 3rd party widgets. Essentially, the developer builds the web code just like other web apps utilizing html, css and javascript, images and AJAX.

Keep in mind that the developer will still need to test and debug the app. But the cool part about it is that the developer can run Intel AppUp™ encapsulator many times as the developer chooses in order to get the app to its desired final product. Once done, then the developer submits the final product to the Intel AppUp center. It’s just that simple!

For more information about Intel AppUp™ encapsulator, please read the FAQs for detailed information. If I’ve convinced you, and you’re ready to expand your customer, then launch the tool and get started now!

Hi Brown,

We are drafting a post. We were awaiting for the App to be successfully get published which was created via Encapsulator and we are happy to say it got published. We will be publishing the Tutorial soon which will help every flash, html5 developer to port their apps for Windows and Meego like 2 mins noodles :-)

Just give us a day or two :-)

Keep in touch.

Our Spl thanks to Andy

I'm one of the developers working on encapsulator ..I'll jump in and try to answer your questions :)

You can certainly run / mashup content directly from the web - for example in an iframe or by including a script tag from a source on the web.
Basically you can decide what the right mix of code packaged into your code zip file and what you want to pull off the web.

My gut feeling is that UI resources, html and js are a good choice for putting in the .zip file (local code) ..and then use the cloud for social and streaming.

Regarding tutorials - you should be able to play around with html,css,js just like you would if you were building a static web site. Are you looking for web in general or encapsulator specific? We'll have more encapsulator videos and articles soon...
