Is there a 2017 timeframe for Wisej Packager [as seen in wisej.com/cloud-ready]? So I can deploy to user a standalone local Windows application that can run without an internet connection. Thanks
We’ll have two solutions that will be released in the extensions as open source projects:
The self hosting part uses Microsoft Owin (Katana) self hosting features and the projects include an ILMerge step to pack the service or application into a single exe.
We should be able to upload a first release of the free extension in about a month.
You can also already run a Wisej app without IIS but you’d need to run Cassini UltiDev.
Would you like to try an early release?
Wisej.HostService.exe (web server process or service, no installation required, 1 exe, 280KB)
Wisej.Application.exe (IE version, 1 exe, no installation, 480KB)
Wisej.Application.exe (Chromium version, 1 exe, no installation, 114MB!)
This is an example of a Wisej test app running standalone like a desktop app.
And all the demo at demo.wisej.com are also hosted without IIS here:
Use the name without .json to access a sub-application:
