Tested on Mountain Lion and had a major bug on creating the application, it seems someway the property lists created are both unreadable by the crated app itself
to make it work had to re-edit all with plisteditor the the application worked, seems to me it give the wrong encoding to the file
otherwise seems pretty useful and quite fast
let's see how grows up

Sentenza Desktop is incredibly perfect !

Concept is fresh and new but the power is here. I bought it mainly to test but I'm sure I'll be able to achieve some real projects for Mac App Store.

The API library is still a bit small. Hope it will grow up in future.

Before, I have tested TideSDK but honestly it's too slow and heavy (applications requires framework, over 30 MB). Idem with Adobe AIR or other experimental projects.

The minimum requirement is OS X Lion (10.7) but it's working perfectly on my Snow Leopard (10.6.6). So, good news !

Keep on updating :)

With Sentenza Desktop, build Mac OS X applications with HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript. Use the APIs library to add advanced features to your project. You will be able to build standalone web applications for Mac OS X (from Snow Leopard to Mountain Lion) and deploy them on the Mac App Store or sell them in your own ways.

Using Sentenza Desktop is really simple. You have just to fill fields, radio buttons and checkboxes to customize your application. You specify the root directory where the content of your application is stored (HTML, CSS, JS files and images), and the engine will compile a standalone application. Sentenza Desktop is compatible and optimized for using HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript (of course you can use audio and video).

I built a library of APIs that can help you to add advanced features to your applications. Those APIs must be called in JavaScript and can be mixed each other or with other functions. From my tests, I have not detected any conflicts with multiple JavaScript frameworks. I tried to be as complete as possible to recreate all basic functions of a modern application (read and write a file, using notifications center, manipulate the window, ...).

With Sentenza Desktop you can codesign your application without using any external tools. You will have the choice to compile a .pkg package (for Application Loader submission) or a .xcarchive package (for XCode submission). An Apple Developer Account is required to publish your applications on the Mac App Store.

Here is a non-exhaustive list of features:
  • Build applications for Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) or newer (32/64-bits)
  • Optimized for Mac OS X 10.8.2 (Mountain Lion)
  • Build light & portable applications (core < 200 kb)
  • Fully independant (not a web-service like PhoneGap)
  • Core has been built in native Objective-C and doesn't require any frameworks
  • 30 APIs available, those can be called in JavaScript
  • GUI of applications built with Sentenza Desktop is automatically available in En, Fr, De, It and Es !
  • Save your project as .stzdprj (XML-based)
  • Window fully customizable (size, status bar, modal, resizable, ...)
  • Use HTML5 LocalStorage to save datas easily
  • Enable fullscreen mode to give a new dimension to your applications
  • Enable WebGL to make awesome 3D applications
  • Include help in your application
  • Customize About window and application icon
  • Enable/Disable back-forward
  • Enable/Disable scroll bounce (elastic)
  • Use a custom user-agent
  • Compatible with distant PHP
  • Fully compatible with most JavaScript frameworks
  • Publish your applications on the Mac App Store
  • User interface available in french and english (log in english)
