Kenneth Christiansen (@kennethrohde) and Alexis Menard (@darktears) the creators of the crosswalk project talk to us about creating hybrid mobile apps using a consistent and powerful runtime environment across mobile, TV, desktop and IoT devices. We talk in detail about what benefits Crosswalk can bring to the table, general features, its extension system and its compatibility with Cordova/PhoneGap projects. We also talk about how hybrid app development promises to maximize code reuse (“write once deploy everywhere”) and the reality of this promise. Finally we talk about Progressive Web Apps and how Crosswalk can be used to extend PWA exposure by also quickly getting them within the app store.
