Hi, I’m returning to xojo having had some experience of building simple desktop apps. I would like to try web apps but am struggling a bit with the concept.
For a simple desktop app I would put the app in a folder along with other folders for images and maybe text or binary files and read and write those files. Can I do more or less the same thing with a web app - sending the whole program folder by FTP to my Linux VPS server? I’m not by skilled in unix, so that side of it is also a bit worrying.
Rather than run the remote app in a commercial browser is there any reason I shouldn’t build a desktop app to query the remote app? I’m sorry if these questions sound a bit dim. I can’t find any text books or documentation online other than the really simple ‘build a remote to do list’ examples.
Thanks if you can help
