Chromebook indexing app

Postby bbennion » Sun Jun 22, 2014 9:47 pm

Is there any effort to make a chromebook app for indexing? If not can someone point me in the right direction to develop my own app

The current direction is to create a web application for indexing (see here).

For mobile devices, the approach of creating an indexing app was tried and rejected in favor of this new approach of using a web app for all devices. So I really doubt that there would be interest in creating a Chromebook-specific app. And there is no public API available for indexing, so there's really nowhere to point you for developing your own app.

I'd recommend that you wait until the new web app is released; it should work fine on a Chromebook device.
