Windows Apps

by chavetaz Wed May 08, 2019 2:05 pm

Hi,
I'm testing Spiderbasic and I'm confused with the meaning of "windows app":
- Is it an application that requires an external browser to run? (like spotify web?)
- Is it an application that runs directly as if it were downloaded from "windows store" (like spotify app?)

Thank you!

Hi chavetaz,

Where did you see "windows app"?
The choices are: Android, iOS and Web.

If you saw the term "windows app" I'd guess it's a reference to the desktop style UI that SpiderBasic is used to create.

That must be my confusion.
I read on the main page:
"Very close to PureBasic, which allows to port easily an application to the desktop"

I assumed "windows desktop application" and from there to "windows app".

So summarizing: in windows I can only create Web apps (HTML file) that only run in a browser window.

Or you can compile the same code with the PureBasic compiler (as long as you haven't used third party JS libraries or inline JS) and there's your windows app.

SpiderBasic = Android, iOS and Web
PureBasic = Linux, Mac and Windows

But there's a large overlap where the same code will work with both compilers.

Window App? Kind of sounds strange to me though.
