Project founder Philip van Allen says “We’ve been planning the HTML5 version for some time, and now have the resources to build a next generation toolkit for tangible interaction and the Internet of Things.” [more]

We’ve posted an update that adds automatic saving to your project sketch. You can now work on a sketch, and come back another time and most everything will be the same as before. Sketches are saved in your browser’s local storage, so to see your sketch, you must use the same browser on the same computer. Also, we’ve added the ability to delete widgets, either one at a time, or all at once.

Right now, only one sketch can be saved, and images are not saved. Of course we’re working on additions to add these capabilities.

Fullscreen mode now works properly, and many other improvements have been made under the hood.

Up next:

  1. Support for multiple project sketches
  2. Saving of on-screen features of widgets, e.g. min/max in AnalogIn
  3. Redesign of how images work, and saving them in sketches
  4. More widgets!

Please see our new HTML5 Widgets reference page for more information.
