Introducing Nidium

In the 1990's it was impossible to picture what the web would become by the year 2014. Yes, it was strictly impossible to imagine bootstrap, jquery, nodejs, mobile apps and all the other cool things we have today.

As a result of this ignorance, conception mistakes were made causing today's browsers to look like a collection of patches and hacks. Features were added endlessly on the stack, leading to complex architectures and bottlenecks. Browsers were clearly not created for application development.

Hidden Complexity

Nidium is the first attempt to handle what's coming: the fusion of desktop applications, mobile applications and next-generation webapps.

Hello World

Nidium is so simple to use that you can create apps in minutes. Edit your javascript, add your stylesheet and that's it.

hello.nml
<application version="0.2">
    <meta>
        <title>My Application</title>
        <description>Such a great description</description>
        <viewport>355x140</viewport>
        <identifier>com.company.app</identifier>
        <author>Company Inc.</author>
    </meta>
    <assets>
        <script src="hello.js"></script>
    </assets>
</application>
hello.js
var b = new UIButton(document);
b.label = "Hello World";
b.center();

Graphic Rendering - Refined

Today, the bulk of our time is spent trying to make webapps look like native desktop applications. Web architects have to build more and more JS and CSS frameworks to make application development a much simpler task.

Nidium comes with Native Framework, the operating system that powers Nidium Engine. It’s designed to deliver the most intuitive experience in application development.

  • Advanced Layer Management
  • Compositing and Layout Engine
  • Immediate Mode mixed with Retained Mode
  • Native Embedded Javascript Framework
