Google Chrome Apps

Executive Order Corporation — We will create your Web Application for Google Chrome and Google Web App Store

Since the announcement from Google that it has opened it’s Chrome Web Store to developers, many web developers and companies are suddenly interested in knowing more about the type of apps that the Chrome Store supports. Executive Order Corp provides expert development and deployment experience to Google’s Web store and Google’s Web, and IoT apps.

The Executive Order Corp — The ability to package apps, which are essentially browser-based applications, is one of the key features of the Chrome Web Store. A packaged app is a web app that’s bundled up, so that the user downloads all of its contents when they “install” the app. Packaged apps can be used both when a user is online, as well as when they are offline, as all of the contents–including HTML, JavaScript, CSS, images, and any other files are included in the “package”.

Chrome Apps deliver an experience as capable as a native app, but as safe as a web page. Just like web apps, Chrome Apps are written in HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS; however, Chrome Apps look and behave like native apps and they have native-like capabilities that are much more powerful than those available to web apps. Chrome Apps have access to Chrome APIs and services not available to traditional web sites. You can build powerful IoT apps that interact with network and IoT hardware devices, media tools, and much more. Here’s are some examples:

  • IoT hardware device sensor monitoring
  • Shells (VMWare, IoT, SSH, RDP or VNC clients)
  • Music/video streaming, live video feeds
  • Photo/video/music editing, publishing
  • Desktop/Server enterprise integration

Chrome App pages always load locally. This allows apps to be less dependent on the network. Once a user installs an app they have full control over the app’s lifecycle. Apps open and close quickly and the system can shut apps down at any time to improve performance. Users can fully uninstall apps.

When a user opens a Chrome App their focus is specifically on the tasks relating to the app. Chrome Apps have no traditional chrome: the Omnibox (address bar), tab strip, and other browser interface elements no longer appear. Like native apps, they don’t live within the browser. When launched, Chrome Apps can open in windows that look like this (and you can style your windows in all different ways).

Chrome Apps are modified web apps. You use the same code, frameworks, and tools of the web platform to write your apps. Some browser features have been removed, other web APIs have been disabled or changed to improve security and programming practices. New features have been added to help you build more native-like apps. The app container and programming models control how Chrome Apps look and behave. These models aim to provide users with a more native experience. Powerful APIs have been added so your apps can have native-like capabilities, and a serious security model is enforced to make sure these APIs are not abused.

Extensions allow you to add functionality to Chrome without diving deeply into native code. You can create new extensions for Chrome with those core technologies that you’re already familiar with from web development: HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. If you’ve ever built a web page, you should feel right at home with extensions pretty quickly.
