Two Intel HTML5 tools for mobile applications development

New HTML5 tools meant for development of mobile applications – Intel HTML5 App Porter Tool and Intel XDK – were announced by Intel Corporation. For example, they can be used for porting Apple iOS accelerometer application to HTML5. In this article you’ll know about these tools.

1. Intel HTML5 App Porter Tool

Let’s take our case with Apple iOS accelerometer application. For this purpose developers need to convert the Objective-C source code to HTML5. Intel HTML5 App Porter Tool excellently suits for performance of the task. It is available for downloading on the Intel web-site at the Tools tab. All you need to do – submit and get the links.

Speaking of other artifacts which can be subjected to conversion, they are:

-      Apple Xcode project files used in Microsoft Visual Studio 2012;

-      Apple iOS API types and calls into JavaScript/HTML5 objects;

-      Layouts of views inside Apple Xcode Interface Builder (XIB) files can be converted to HTML + CSS files.

2. Intel XDK

Another tool for HTML5 application development is Intel XDK. It is a cross platform development kit that is elaborated for writing of a single source code for different devices. The good news is that Intel XDK is a free integrated environment used for cross platform applications development.

More than that, this tool doesn’t require installation on user’s computer. It can be used as a Google Chrome extension. Other browsers are less convenient for installation because they need additional downloading of a JavaScript file or even Java updating.

Beyond that, Intel XDK provides support of not only Apache Cordova API interface. An extended application interface (intel.xdk) is offered by the tool too. It contains functions that are not foreseen by Cordova.
