Introducing my latest project, Guidelines Dev, for Hosted Web Apps

As many of you know I like making things, whether that be wallpapers, card games or websites. My biggest project to date has been http://kickerbacker.com and as part of that I created a #Windows10 app as a Hosted Web App. Granted, it's not necessarily the best way to create an app but you know what it is very quick and very easy even though it's not native.

However, it got me thinking. If people, predominantly web developers, want to create Hosted Web Apps then wouldn't it be good if their websites/apps actually looked like native Windows 10 apps. That is what I hope to achieve with Guidelines Dev.

You can download the demo app to your Windows 10 device right now from the Store to see how Hosted Web Apps can look as a native app. The app works on phones, tablets and PCs, I've even tried it out using Continuum and it looks great (if I do say so myself). Download it from https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/store/apps/guidelinesdev/9nblggh5dn8d

Right now #GuidelinesDev is a small collection of CSS and JavaScript, written in SASS and AngularJS, that allows web devs to create a website that looks and acts like a Windows 10 app. I have plans to add a lot more to the tools including styled radio boxes, a collection of split view designs and app bars that are fully responsive.

But, as this is a project for the community to use I am keen for others to contribute to this project too. That's why you can check it out right now on my GitHub - https://github.com/MichaelGillett/GuidelinesDev

So, what do you think? I am keen to know. I hope to add more to the Guidelines Dev over the coming weeks and months so keep an eye on it.

P.S. In the spirit of the Universal Windows Platform I have written this whole post on my Lumia 950 XL in Continuum :)
