BrainTrust Electron Client

09 Oct 2016 . Category . Comments #research #fsharp #braintrust

The Electron version of the BrainTrust client is now on GitHub.

The previous version (used in the NSF EAGER work) was a Silverlight application; however, as major browsers began to discontinue support for plugins, Silverlight is no longer viable.

After a ton of design work considering

  • 3D agent support
  • Text to speech
  • Cross platform capability

I decided to use Electron, which is really a Node/Chrome application that presents itself as a desktop application, in order for BrainTrust to be as cross platform as Chrome is.

Additionally, I decided to develop using Fable, a very cool transpiler that lets me code in F# and compile to Javascript.
