Jade Application Kit

Jade Application Kit Is a lightweight framework for Linux that allows you to build Desktop applications using Web Technologies on Linux, or run web applications in a native wrapper with minimal effort.

I built this as I needed something to build my desktop applications and Desktop Environment with an HTML front end, without having to use a full browser.

JAK is the backbone of Jade Desktop Environment and Is also used to display Microsoft Office Online as a native desktop application in Manjaro Linux.

This project was a hard and rewarding challenge, as I had to learn Python and a new API to make it happen.
