Gizmox HTML5 For Visual Studio Using C#

HTML5 development tools company Gizmox has released its Visual WebGui Version 7 with a new mobile feature set, a code assessment tool for analyzing legacy desktop apps, and integration with Microsoft Visual Studio 2013.

This tool is intended for Visual Studio developers creating HTML5 apps using only C# and visual designers. It supports the development of data-intensive business applications (is there any other kind?) based on the latest HTML5 standards and MVC design best practices. There is a "business server" to help deliver scalability, performance, and security.

There's a lot of features to count off here: Visual WebGui Version 7 adds PhoneGap device integration, offline support for managing periodic disconnects, and the ability to quickly design for different mobile form factors with no coding.

"Integration with Visual Studio 2013 lets developers take advantage of Visual WebGui immediately. Also available is an assessment tool that analyzes legacy client-server code (e.g. VB6) and provides benchmarks comparing the complexity of rewriting to reusing code by automating the move to C# or HTML5 with Gizmox Transposition," said Itzik Spitzen, Gizmox CTO.

"Partners like Gizmox build great development tools that help Visual Studio developers further leverage the skills they already have. Integrated with Visual Studio 2013, Gizmox's Visual WebGui gives Visual Studio developers a high-quality option for creating enterprise-ready web and mobile apps with complex business logic," said Microsoft's developers tools spokesperson Mitra Azizirad.
