GitChrome Package App will be cool!

After having used GitHub for Windows I am really inspired to implement the same as a Chrome Packaged App.

GitHub for Windows

The window frame of a Chrome Package App is very similar to the one we see above. So here is what I am thinking:

  • Chrome Package App implementation
    • Ability to access local filesystem [1] to access local repositories
      • the required look
  • AngularJS+Bootstrap for the UI
  • Possibly look into JavaScript implementation of Git API (not sure if this is alive) or Git.js or develop one.
Come to think of it node webkit may be a better implementation alternative! Looking into it. Seen and example of using node-webkit to develop desktop app - POM360 .

I am going to call it GNIT (Git, Node, Webkit).

Stay tuned!
