Sentenza Desktop for Mac - Screenshot

About

After Sentenza for iOS (a bit out of date today) I have built Sentenza Desktop. The concept is the same : making beautiful and powerful applications in HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript. Apple devices like iPhone and iPad are great platforms to run web applications, but why not deploy these applications on stronger machines, like MacBook ? The power of the combination of HTML5 + JavaScript no longer needs to be demonstrated and WebKit is better than ever ! Here are few awesome HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript demonstrations : GlobeTweeter, The Planetarium, Agent 008 Ball, BrowserQuest, Bejeweled, Angry Birds, BananaBread, HexGL.

If you are curious for news about WebKit, feel free to check out these blogs : WebKitbits and 9-Bits by David Kaneda.

With Sentenza Desktop you can build standalone web applications for Mac OS X (from Snow Leopard to Mountain Lion) and deploy them on the Mac App Store or sell them in your own ways.

In June 2012 the number of Mac users was over 60 million, whose 26 million were under Mac OS X Lion. The Mac App Store was launched in 2011, and less than one year later, the number of downloads reached 100 million ! Yes, 100 million... This massive community is ready to discover your projects, made with Sentenza Desktop :)

Features

Using Sentenza Desktop is really simple. You have just to fill fields, radio buttons and checkboxes to customize your application. You specify the root directory where the content of your application is stored (HTML, CSS, JS files and images), and the engine will compile a standalone application. Sentenza Desktop is compatible and optimized for using HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript (of course you can use audio and video).

Deployment

With Sentenza Desktop you can codesign your application without using any external tools. You will have the choice to compile a .pkg package (for Application Loader submission) or a .xcarchive package (for XCode submission). An Apple Developer Account is required to publish your applications on the Mac App Store.

Building applications for the Mac App Store is an easy way to make money. The community is massive and the Mac App Store is an incredible marketing tool, ready for promoting all types of applications (games, utilities, references, books, lifestyle, music, video, ...).

API

For Sentenza Desktop I built a library of APIs that can help you to add advanced features to your applications. Those APIs must be called in JavaScript and can be mixed each other or with other functions. From my tests, I have not detected any conflicts with multiple JavaScript frameworks. I tried to be as complete as possible to recreate all basic functions of a modern application (read and write a file, using notifications center, manipulate the window, ...).

Below is the list of all available APIs in the latest version. If you have suggestions for future APIs, feel free to contact me. I will make my possible to add them to the next version. For more informations about APIs usage, consult the online help and documentation.
