Standalone in browser?


    Feb 15 2018 | 7:34 pm
    I've searched the forum, but no simple solution has come up for porting a standalone Max app to a browser. Is this possible to do with Max?
    Ie, If one has a standalone app, is there any way to host the app in a browser? I sense it's possible, but with a lot of jiggering & workarounds.
    I've looked into the xebra.js library, which is great but has a ways to go. It seems that Max could not be too far from a legit web dev environment, considering its integration with JS, great graphical features, etc etc. Is this something that may be in the pipelines by chance? Ideally devs could 'export' to a defined server, as one exports to standalone app.

      There is no simple solution for doing this at this time.

      Unfortunately, it is impossible (at least at the moment). But the thing is worth considering. Some modular environments (VVVV is good example) already flirt with the capabilities of modern WWW browsers - so one day, who knows?

      It IS possible to host clients on a Web server with Java extensions. Of course Max has to be installed in a way accessible to the server, which is not easy on most ISPs.

      @YANIKI : never heard of VVVV before, looks great! Is it Windows only?
      @ERNEST: Thanks, I'm probably not gonna fiddle with Java extensions though :/

      I probably should be more specific. VVVV is designed for windows, but there is a special incarnation of this language: VVVVjs (http://vvvvjs.com) designed to work from within WWW browser.
