Cross-OS HTML5 applications development kit from EXOPC



The EXOPC architecture is built around the HTML5 standard and EXOengine, aimed to provide the missing pieces to HTML5 for software developers.
EXOengine is a 400kb binary file available for Windows, Android, and MacOS.
EXO file format
The EXO file is a container aimed to compress and store various files composing an HTML5 application. The EXO file is easy to send from a device to another, or to publish on an application store. 
Features exposed to HTML5 and JavaScript developers
  • Multi-touch (up to 256 points of touch) via standard JavaScript events
  • Multiple displays and multiple HTML instances
  • Interoperability layer with send and listen features supporting synchronous and asynchronous, cross-devices communication (peer to peer, folder synchronization)
