“Laszlo on Rails”:http://wiki.openlaszlo.org/Laszlo_On_Rails
OpenLaszlo is blurring the line between desktop and web apps.
On the internet today, there is a movement towards a better look, feel and more interactivity.
Pimp my site (mypace, et. al).
Brookers from youtube demo :)
Web apps need Sex, Drugs and rock and roll which is a fun way of saying Pretty, Immersive and Rich.
Pandora is written in Laszlo.
Lzx is laszlo’s language. Kind of like XUL for Mozilla. It uses declarative XML.
Can I edit lzx in my favorite editor?
XML, even with remote http. Uses XPATH to access nodes and collections.
(And now a group hug for those of us who hate flash)
There is also a DHTML runtime, so you don’t have to worry about flash.
Demo of LZPics – a Flickr viewer in DHTML by way of Laszlo. Very cool and responsive.
BlogBoxes are a way to give users a widget to take with them – to MySpace or wherever!
Not all roses – resources, searching and others aren’t the best. But there is a accessibility API.
