|Portable Container & Web Intents||Jonathan Beri||7/1/11 9:56 PM|
Paul Kinlan from Google is working on a project called Web Intents.I just learned about Web Intents in a recent post. He describes Web Intents as "a framework for client-side service discovery and inter-application communication." Sounds a lot like embedding gadgets. This may be a good solution for a portable container, even better than something like oEmbed. There's even a concept of actions & types, that corresponds to activity stream model.
There's already plenty of sample code to play with & its even under Apache licensing.
What do you guys think? I'd love to see portable container make it into 2.1.

One of the next major topics for OS is a portable container - an easy way to embed a container + gadget on the client (or even a server application.) We've talked about oEmbed, but it has its pros and cons. Web Intents seems like it may be a more robust solution - especially when combined with the Common Container. Also seems to have momentum, since Google & Firefox are working on the solution together.
What do you think?

Jonathan & Paul K.
I'd like to learn more about this and, as Jonathan points out, not go down a path that will put us in a corner later.
