6 of the Best Free Linux Rich Internet Application
A rich internet application is a web application that
resembles a desktop application in many ways, but is delivered by a
browser, virtual machine or from a browser plug-in. The most popular
platforms for rich internet applications are Adobe Flash, and Java.
There are a number of benefits of delivering business software
through the web, such as easier administration and simplified
accessibility. Traditionally, web applications often had limited
functionality, composed of static pages, and were typically more
complicated to develop than desktop applications.
However, rich internet application frameworks make the
art of developing highly interactive web applications to be a much more
pleasant experience. These frameworks are a set of languages and tools
which enable developers to create rich user interfaces for web
applications. Programmers can deploy web applications that actually
behave like desktop applications. This is
achieved by a group of interrelated web development techniques which
enable the client-side to create interactive applications. They also
have other advantages, such as removing the need
for users to deal with software updates.
Linux has a wide selection of rich internet application
frameworks available, enabling developers to create web applications
for a full range of different formats and platforms, such as Ajax,
Adobe AIR, Apple iPhone, Apple iPad, Android, Microsoft Silverlight,
To provide an insight into the quality of software available
for Linux, we have compiled a list of 6 powerful rich internet
application frameworks. Hopefully, there will be something of interest
here for anyone interested in developing rich user interfaces.
Now, let's explore the 6 rich internet application frameworks
at hand. For each title we have compiled its own portal page, a full
description with an in-depth analysis of its features, screenshots,
links to relevant resources and reviews.
