Have you looked at Fayde, and do you foresee a (possibly stripped-down) SciChart version for Fayde?
I don’t think it’s that easy to write off HTML-5’s canvas. This article talks about the transition from Silverlight to HTML-5 and specifically mentions WriteableBitmap.
The reality is that you render with a pixel-pushing API that manipulates a bitmap, and that API could probably be perfectly reproduced in Typescript. I suspect the problem is one of speed, not reproducibility.
I guess the answer is “no”, you’re not going to consider Fayde. That’s a shame, as it’s the only WPF implementation that will run in a browser. Native apps in Android and iOS are not equivalent at all. They’re not web-launched and cannot be part of a larger web application.
This is a really cool technology, and I wasn’t aware it existed.
Without knowing too much about this, I must say, I would be very surprised if it could support SciChart. This is because we really really push XAML to its limits anyway. One tiny mismatch in implementation and the whole thing comes falling down.
What is more likely is we’ll end up porting to various platforms to enable web development. We’re already developing platform ports such as Android / iOS and we are continuing to develop WPF but moving away from Silverlight (it just doesn’t have the support from MS that WPF does).
I hope that answers your question. If you have any other ideas, let me know.
