Latest Version: 0.7.0

wq.app on GitHub

wq.app is a suite of Javascript modules and related assets, created to facilitate the rapid deployment of offline-cabable HTML5 mobile and desktop data collection apps for crowdsourcing, citizen science, and volunteered geographic information, as well as professional field data collection. wq.app is the client component of the wq framework, and can be used with any REST service as a backend. In particular, when combined with a Mustache-capable REST service like wq.db, wq.app can be used to create responsive, progressively enhanced websites / apps, that can selectively render individual application screens on the server or on the client depending on project needs, network connectivity, and localStorage availability.

Getting Started

pip3 install wq.app
# Or, if using together with wq.db
pip3 install wq

See the documentation for more information.

Features

wq.app's JavaScript modules are built on a number of libraries including RequireJS, jQuery Mobile, Leaflet, d3, and Mustache.js. wq.app extends these libraries with:

To facilitate compact deployment, wq.app provides a Python-based build process for compiling wq apps: inlining templates, optimizing code (via r.js), and generating an application cache manifest. wq.app also includes jquery-mobile.scss, a SASS/SCSS stylesheet for generating custom jQuery Mobile themes.
