Thali
An experimental platform for building the peer web sponsored by Microsoft

No Internet? No problem.

Communicate with other local devices without any Internet support using BLE, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi Direct.

Stay in sync

Thali takes care of offline/online syncing by replicating JSON data and binary attachments.

Your Phone is a Web Server!

Write your web interface using Cordova and run your Node.js server code on iOS and Android.

Postcard app

To demonstrate the Thali Cordova plugin we created the Postcard app which sends messages or 'postcards' across mobile devices equipped with Smart Bluetooth.

Watch video of Postcard app showing Cordova plus Node.js all running on Android plus local peer to peer communication over BLE and Bluetooth to share content between phones.
