Google is currently actively working on its chrome based web app for browser based development environment; code named ‘SPARK’
. You can find latest updates at google spark github repository
Spark is an Integrated Development Environment(IDE), which will be used by Chrome App Developers for in-browser development of chrome applications. This is however, a beginning for a new era of chrome web app development, as stated by Francois Beaufort
. He has been monitoring this project closely at Google.
Yet, this is still the very beginning. There’s not much we can do for now.
I’ll definitely keep an eye on this one though.
Spark is built upon DART and Polymer
Dart leader Lars Bak speaking at Google I/O 2013
“The Dart is done”, said Google Dart Lead at Google I/O 2013. Dart 1.0 is currently available for use with Google Chrome. Other 2 lead browser makers(Mozilla, Microsoft), however, neither care for nor support this programming language yet. Google is on its way, however, trying to convince other browser makers to add support for this new language. Dart has been designed to improve user experience and performance for websites and web apps.
The Graphical User Interface(GUI) for Spark has been developed using the GUI Widgets library powered by ‘Polymer’. The Spark project is being built using scalable web app engineering technologies and hence, it goes beyond user expectations.
