Glimmer DSL for Opal v0.3.0 Custom Shell Support

Glimmer DSL for Opal v0.3.0 is out with the following changes:

  • Support opening a custom shell in a browser tab/window by passing in query parameters to URL (e.g. ?custom_shell=keyword+option1=value1 etc...)
  • Make custom shells automatically open in a new tab/window (while standard shells continue to open in the same window by replacing its content)
  • Hello, Custom Shell! Sample

One noteworthy thing to mention is that custom shells (also known as custom windows) open as new tabs in the web browser to represent the equivalent of desktop app windows. 

Glimmer DSL for Opal handles custom shell browser tab routing automatically so that developers do not need to change a thing in the Glimmer DSL for SWT desktop app code that is webified automatically.

Here are screenshots of the new Hello, Custom Shell! sample.


Happy Glimmering!
