Develop cross-platform desktop applications with TideSDK

If you’re a web developer – already familiar with HTML5/CSS3/Javascript then you don’t need to learn some other languages, in order to create desktop application. With TideSDK, you can create cross-platform apps (supported on Linux based distributions such as Ubuntu, Windows and Mac OS X), just like you create a web app. You can also use your favorite scripting language such as Ruby, Python and PHP.
