Hi, im new here, I started learning erlang by reading the book of joe
I think a good approach will be to write some kind of wrapper or
utility library around XUL to output a feature rich GUI over a web
server, then you have the best of both worlds. A great and unified
that's not a problem I guess).
Here are some nice examples (requires a gecko based browser);
you can use XulRunner or Prism to run "desktop applications" or
just give the user an URL.
by using this as the GUI library you have a lot of advantages, you
have a desktop look and feel, transition to a web applications is
realy easy, you dont have bindings, the GUI is described on separated
files, platform independence etc.
Hope that helps :P
