Building HTML5 Desktop Applications with Finsemble

HTML5’s last frontier is building desktop applications. The advent of applications such as Spotify and Slack, built using Electron, represent the first wave of HTML5 desktop applications. With the release of OpenFin’s secure container platform, financial firms are now also migrating their desktop development to HTML5.

Finsemble is an OpenFin Application Framework that provides infrastructure, services, and components for quickly building multi-window financial desktop applications. This presentation will describe the process of building these apps in Finsemble, outline the key problems addressed, and conclude with a quick coding demonstration.

What You’ll Learn

  • HTML5 offers significant advantages over .NET and Java for building desktop applications.
  • When building HTML5 desktop applications, firms run the risk of making UX compromises if they choose the wrong methodologies.
