Implementing Productivity Apps with Angular and Fugu APIs

Session Abstract

Double-click a file, make changes, and save it back to disk: That’s how productivity apps, IDEs, and image editors have been working since the early days of desktop computing. Until now, web applications could not integrate into this workflow. Fortunately, Project Fugu, a cross-vendor initiative by Google, Microsoft, and Intel, aims to bring very powerful native capabilities to the web—file handler registrations, clipboard, and file system access included! This allows web developers like you to finally bring Office-style apps, IDEs, text, image, or video editors to the web. Thinktecture’s Christian Liebel shows you how to integrate Native File System and File Handler API into your Angular app.
