Intel : iOS to HTML5 porting tool

Posted: February 8, 2013 in IT/Dev

Intel provides HTML5 App Porter Tool (beta version) for iOS, that allows to parse (using Clang to retrieve AST) Objective-C code and Nib archives (intermediate XML files) and convert these to html/javascript and css (using HTML5 and/or jQuery depending on the features).

Not all APIs are mapped (a list is provided). Core Graphics APIs are mapped to Canvas (as Cappuccino did), UIKit views are translated to jQuery Mobile components (or using APT library widgets if no corresponding component is found), and controllers/delegates are implemented in APT package.
