Kirby site as app


#1

Hi all -

Does anyone have any experience or know of any good information on converting a kirby site to an app? I’d like to still control the info in the app from the kirby panel but effectively show the info wrapped in a kiosk app for tablets.

Thanks

I did this, using the free Visual Studio Cordova IDE in combination with Kirby.

Kirby was used as a back-end for providing the content, Cordova created a native app (Windows / Android) which parsed that content and showed it inside the app (using jQuery / Ajax / Bootstrap as front-end for the app).

But Kirby’s data is not quite structured, so I prefered a JSON syntax and switched to WordPress, which had an in-build REST-API for converting all, plain text, content to JSON / XML / YAML / etc…
