DaVinci (software)

DaVinci is a development tool used to create HTML5 mobile applications and media content. It includes a jQuery framework, which is a JavaScript library, and can be used by developers and designers, to create web applications used on mobile devices, that have a user experience similar to native applications.[1] Business applications, games, and rich media content, such as HTML5 multi-media magazines, advertisements, and animation, may be produced with the tool.[2] DaVinci is based on standard web technology, including HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript.[3]

Features[edit]

DaVinci is composed of DaVinci Studio and DaVinci Animator, which handle application programming and UI design, respectively. The tool has a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) authoring environment in which users may drag and drop components to build applications and design web content.[4]

Open source libraries, such as KnockOut, jsView/jsRender, Impress.js, and turn.js are included in the tool. Other open source frameworks may also be integrated.

The Model View Controller (MVC) and Data Binding in JavaScript may be handled through DaVinci’s Data-Set Editor. Here, view components and model data may be visually bound, which allows users to create web applications with server integrated UI components without coding.[5]

DaVinci also includes a N-Screen editor, which automatically applies designs and functions to the screen size of various devices, such as smartphones, tablet PCs, and smartTV.[6]

DaVinci and jQuery[edit]

DaVinci has worked closely with the jQuery Foundation in presenting the very first jQuery conference in an Asian district on November 12, 2012 in Seoul, South Korea. DaVinci had been used as a tool to demonstrate application development techniques at the conference.[7]

The Rise of HTML5 Application Tools[edit]

It has been reported, in late 2012, that more HTML5 applications will surface and become a key player in the market within 2013 to 2015.[8] In parallel to these projections, a survey conducted by Kendo UI showed a growing number of developers that use or plan to use HTML5: 63% say they are currently using HTML5 and 31% plan on using it in the future.

Reasons for use have been noted for the familiarity of programming language (HTML, JavaScript, and CSS) and its cross-platform support.[9][10]

Other HTML5 authoring tools include Adobe Edge and Sencha Touch. [11]
