Oridea is an open source platform for running applications with
hypertext user interface (HTUI). For this moment
(version 0.2.0.4741), Oridea has following features:
Oridea Platform API - provides all of Oridea
functionality: Data Transfer Protocol (ODTP, the internal
protocol that is a list of rules used for the dialog between the platform and
application, former Nex Internal Protocol), Data Storage System (ODSS, the OS-independent data storage system),
Configuration Storage (OCS, where each
Oridea application and Oridea itself stores their configuration), Template
Storage (OTS, where Oridea stores all of applications
templates, translatable), etc.
See documentation for more information.
Nex Web-browser - fully customizable, tabbed and extensible
Web-browser. Contains its own favorites system, search system, history, skin
customization engine, etc. Any feuture of Nex is implemented in hypertext that
makes it beutiful, magic and more reliable.
Nex is an executable part of Oridea Platform, where Oridea is a framework used
by all of it applications (including Nex), Nex shows hypertext to user.
Currently, it uses Microsoft Internet Explorer
HTML-rendering engine, but we have great plans on porting it on Gecko (Mozilla's engine).
Hyperpad notes journal - the hypertext notepad, where
you can store your own notes (HTML enabled), read it, edit and manage. Hyperpad
is a good example of using the Oridea Platform for program development. It is
included in the Nex since A2 (0.2.4700) version,
but can be easily removed.

components (including Nex Web-browser and Hyperpad notes journal) distributed
