Webxdc evolve

Comparative analysis of HTML5 app containers is an evolving standard which defines a format for portable HTML5 applications and an API for local-first, peer-to-peer, end-to-end encrypted applications. For this project we will perform a comprehensive survey of historical and contemporary efforts with similar goals, including those by W3C working groups, independent open-source developers, and noteworthy proprietary platforms. We'll produce reference documents providing developers with a comprehensive overview of the space, summarizing their options for packaging portable HTML5 applications for different platforms, and highlighting affinities between closely aligned projects. As a follow-up, we'll propose additions to the webxdc API based on patterns observed in other projects, aiming to reduce the complexity of common designs and facilitate portability between or interoperability with existing platform implementations.
