Asturix On: New Web Based Desktop Environment With Web Technology HTM5,CSS3 and JavaScript

Here it is key features of Asturix On Desktop environments are:

  • Web based. All of the Asturix On user interface is programmed with only web technologies. Yes, just HTML5, CSS3 and Javascript. That’s pretty cool! Cool for the developer because we can build and extend all the desktop components easily. And cool for the user because the interface results in a highly animated and fresh experience!
  • Beautiful and simple. With a small top panel (only 24px height!) you won’t be distracted. There aren’t oversized docks or tool bars to reduce your display’s usable space. With the top panel you can switch tabs, access desktops or monitor system information thanks to indicators. When you are on the desktop, swipe your mouse to access applications, widgets or places. Just work.
  • Graceful degradation. Don’t worry if you don’t have a super-computer with 3D effects. Asturix On will automatically default to a 2D window manager. The user experience is unaffected, so don’t hesitate to try Asturix On on an older system.
  • Tablet capable. The desktop is based on Qt and the UI uses Sencha, two libraries that are touch capable and can be ported to a lot of mobile devices.
