We are thinking about choosing Rails as our weapon of choice for our
next project, which is basically a text editor on steroids, whith some
functionality that need an Internet connection.
In the first step we are going to develop it as a plain web app
(AJAX-ified, yay!), however, in the next step we would like to port some
of the functionality (such as the editor) to a desktop app (which can be
used without Internet connectivity).
I’ve read about XUL and I was wondering if anyone has any experience of
“converting” a Rails project to the desktop using XUL, and keeping Rails
as a backend? Or maybe there’s a better tool than XUL?
