NGClient Desktop?

Postby joe26 » Thu Mar 11, 2021 11:21 pm


In the wiki, it says that 'War deployment is the only option for an NGClient, because a lot more resources are needed then just the solution.'

What, then, is 'NG Desktop Export?'

The war deployment is on the server.

NG Desktop is a program which can be installed on the users desktop to access your server instead of a webbrowser. Technically it's a chrome-based browser which can only access your server (you specify the url in the export).

The main advantage is that you can use the ng-desktop and ng-desktop-file components to make the desktop-integration seamless, especially if you work with documents, you can download documents to specific folders, open the files with the installed applications on the client machine, watch for changes and upload the files when the user is finished.

Thanks, Robert, but there isn't much in the wiki about the NGClient Desktop.

I've exported an NGClient Desktop, but it comes up blank and have included all of the plugins and points to the NGClient on the Server.
The NGClient works as a .war export on the Server.

It does work fine in Developer as a Desktop Client. The Smart Client stacks all of the fields on each other, so doesn't work.
