1.1 Introduction

In this course, you'll learn how to build a small WebRTC app for Ionic. At first, this app won't work, since its features are not supported by the default WebView, but adding Crosswalk will allow us to create a working app.

1.1 Introduction

[MUSIC] Ionic is a hybrid app framework that allows developers to build apps using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. These apps use a HTML based web view to host these apps. For the most part, this Chrome based web view is able to run most of the features common on browsers, but sometimes it falls short. For example if you want to use Web GL Web RTC or web audio in your ionic project, you may experience problems as these technologies are not fully supported. Fortunately we can use cross walk to support these features. Crosstalk as an alternative web view that we can use that offers advanced features. Now API's that would fail in the default web view will work perfectly in our apps. In this coffee break course we will build a small web RTC Android app that grabs a stream from the camera and microphone. First we will demonstrate how they work without crosswalk on our browser, and then we will see what happens once we run it on our mobile device. After that, we will install Crosswalk so the app works properly. After viewing this course, you should understand what Crosswalk can offer you, as well as how to use it in your projects.
