Alien provides the software to allow disconnectable Web Apps to interface with the Alien Server and flourish.
The Alien Engine includes an interface named “Alien Atlas”. Alien Atlas provides a desktop-like-interface in a web browser to run multiple web apps in a single browser window with a panel for switching between apps. Each web app is included in an HTML 5 < object > sandbox to increase security. For example: while using the Alien Atlas Interface instead of running the app at its direct URL, you gain the ability to play music while using the IRC app.
Desktop applications today have hit barriers in serving their users. People have many needs that are going unfulfilled. With Alien these barries disappear opening the door for people to get work done in ways they’ve never had availabe to them before. Web Apps are the logical successor to Desktop Apps, and heres why:
Developers – reach your full potential audience.
Users – use all your favorite apps on your laptops, desktops, and tablets alike.
The crack is in the damn representing traditional desktop software. Web Apps are inevitable. With Alien you can develop your Web Apps to run independently of the Alien Engine minimizing communications to Reading and Writing data to the database.
It is our utmost goal to provide a useful PHP Framework, GUI Interface, and tool sets that helps put the control of peoples files back into their own hands. We encourage both Open Source and Commercial developers to join us in our efforts to simplify our over-complicated world.
