Sencha Desktop Packager is a tool that enables you to wrap up your web applications and deliver them as native solutions. In this article, we’ll look at using it to package GWT applications. We will use three different sample applications — a simple hello world with native features, one based on the GXT Explorer, and one based on the Quake2 GWT Demo.
Sencha Desktop Packager lets you to take an existing web application and deploy it as a desktop application. You can also integrate with the native platform by using additional APIs to create menus, show file dialogs, and access the file system. In this blog post, we’ll show a simple text editor to demonstrate the use of these native APIs.
Today we’re excited to announce two very different, yet equally awesome pieces of news: first, we’re releasing Sencha Desktop Packager 1.1 and second, the Sencha Desktop Packager is now available as a standalone product.
