Wakanda

From the documentation page:

Wakanda is an open-source platform that allows you to develop business web applications. It provides a unified stack running on JavaScript from end-to-end:

  • Cross-platform and cloud-ready on the back end
  • Fully functional, go-anywhere desktop, mobile and tablet apps on the front end

You gain the ability to create browser-based data applications that are as fast, stable, and capable as native client/server solutions are on the desktop.

and:

Notice that no code is generated behind your back: no SQL statements, no binaries, …
What you write is what you get.

I’m not sure that’s a good thing but the name ran a bell and I found an earlier post, Berlin Buzzwords 2011, that just has a slide deck on it.

It’s in Developer Preview 2 (is that pre-pre-alpha or some other designation?) now.

Comments? Anyone looking at this for interface type issues?

I’m the first to admit that most interfaces disappoint but that isn’t because of the underlying technology. Most interfaces disappoint because they are designed as a matter of the underlying technology.

A well-designed green screen would find faster acceptance than any number of current interfaces. (Note I said a well-designed green screen.)
