Join Marco Cantu and myself as we provide an overview of the various web development technologies available to Delphi developers.

We need the embarcadero to develop a framework to make firemonkey multi-platform applications usable in web browsers with html, css and java script.
The idea of multi-platform projects is to make our projects usable on all supported platforms, this minimizes the work and makes it simpler.
When I choose to use Unigui, TMS WebCore and etc it means that I am giving up all the features of Firemonkey and I still have to manage 2 different projects.
You added that in the 2018 roadmap "Web Development Tools," but it does not look like this will continue.
What is the advantage of multi platform if I should, create, develop, manage and maintain 2 separate projects?
Please add Firemonkey support through ExtJS or any other, but please allow us to manage only 1 project for all platforms, thank you.
Sorry, didn't mean to post my comment yet.
We are working on ways to make it less painful to support as many platforms as possible. Right now that means being able to share a lot of your code between the web and other platforms.
Thank you Jim!
I appreciate your wordsI do not believe that the embarcadero will add WEB support after the acquisition of sencha, because you would be creating a product competing for yourselves.
The purchase of sencha killed the dream of the customers of the embarcadero to support "compiling" for Web in multi-platform applications.
Look at the sencha acquisition changed the Delphi roadmap, see and compare with the current roadmap.
2 is better than 5, but 1 is better than 2 :)
If we did add web support it would be to integrate Ext JS, which is what we've done with the Architect Edition with RAD Server. That support is something they are researching expanding, and who knows what the future holds.
