The Webdev group at Mozilla–a group from all corners of the globe who are working with web technologies–met recently by the beach at Santa Cruz, CA. Besides syncing up on all our various projects (it was like an unconference) we decided the Open Web Apps projects needs, well, it needs apps!
We spent half a day hacking on apps and / or developer tools to help people build apps easier. Here are the results. These were literally built in the span of 4 hours so most are still just experimental prototypes. There are links to the source so if an app looks interesting and you want to make it better, don’t hesitate to submit a pull request. It was a lot of fun; we learned about what the web can already do as an apps platform and also what gaps still need to be filled for web developers who want to create apps. You’ll notice that a lot of these screenshots are done with a web browser because that is the SDK of an open web app platform 🙂
