In this video I am taking a step back and going to the basics.
To retrieve qooxdoo from command line you have to type
bash> git clone https://github.com/qooxdoo/qooxdoo.git
This will take some time to complete the download because a git repository contains the complete history. Once the download completes you can create a new project through
bash> mkdir workspace && cd workspace && ../qooxdoo/create-application.py --name=DemoApp bash> cd DemoApp && ./generate.py build
The final result:
This will generate a simple push button on a web page.
Now granted that this is not the coolest web page out there but you have only spent about 5 minutes to create it. Now if you spend some more time on it you can eventually create more complex applications, like a Random Password Generator ( approx 100 lines of code ) or a simple calculator ( approx 200 lines of code ).
As a matter of fact you can create quite complex applications which natively support multiple languages, multiple Themes, multiple icon sets etc … . I believe if you have an idea of a complex web based application you will find a solution with Qooxdoo.
As with the first episode, you can checkout the code online Here …
