Stop Using Native HTML5

A session at Strange Loop 2012

Tuesday 25th September, 2012

1:00pm to 1:50pm (CST)

No, don’t stop using HTML5, just stop using the native HTML5 JavaScript API’s directly. They’re still in flux, there’s still bugs that need to be shim’d, etc. Your code needs to use these features, but it needs to be more robust.

What you need is to use in your apps is a thin facade (wrapper API) around those features, so that as things change, bugs come and go, etc, all that needs to change is the internals of your facade, and not your actual app code.

“h5ive” is a project to build these thin facade APIs for the various HTML5 native APIs. We’ll examine why we need something like this, and how h5ive will help us build more robust HTML5 apps.
