The web browser situation isn't sustainable for free software. the web standards committee needs to dial down the complexity of the specs so that they can be independently implemented
Or.. we start to ignore the standard committee?
@rain agreed but good luck, considering the w3c has already pushed for a standard DRM API. Time to question authority! 😅
@sillystring wish i had an answer...
@rain I'd say the problem is with the quantity, each individual isn't bad at all.
@alcinnz @rain truly.
there are several things that I, as an app developer would like to see in app platform:
- Any efficient bytecode interpreter
- UI toolkit which doesn't suck. People say it's a myth and cannot exist but I'm hopeful. I shouldn't have to roll out my own RTL supprot e.g. or accessibility toolkit
- Low-level storage which doesn't suck. People say... well, you know
- Permission model
- Communicating with other apps
@alcinnz @rain I have "for"s for both low-level and high level .Like if you use default list components in Android you get Accessibility scrolling for free. Similar with other things like spanned text.
On the other hand I've seen iOS trying to bring too high-level components, like predefined list cells or heavily restricted toolbar buttons and that just goes in your way.
@rain You can't dial down the complexity of specs; deployed platforms change in only one direction
