Creating Desktop Applications With node-webkit

The node-webkit project, which was created at Intel and open sourced in 2011, is an attempt to take the pain out of offline single-page application development. The project provides a WebKit browser that has been extended with the the ability to control user interface elements normally off-limits to web developers. The browser’s security configuration is relaxed, assuming that the application code you’re runnning is trusted. And, most interestingly, the browser integrates Node.js, allowing node-webkit applications to leverage a wide array of functionality other than what HTML5 APIs provide.
