Communicate with other local devices without any Internet support using BLE, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi Direct.
Thali takes care of offline/online syncing by replicating JSON data and binary attachments.
To demonstrate the Thali Cordova plugin we created the Postcard app which sends messages or 'postcards' across mobile devices equipped with Smart Bluetooth. Postcards can be added, updated and deleted and any changes will be automatically synchronized across devices. Future plans for Postcard app are available as part of Thali developer stories.
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.
Microsoft had agreed to incubate Thali until around April of this year. So team members assigned to the project all more or less left at that point. I’ve updated our alumni page to cover them all and describe their accomplishments. New entries are included for David Douglas, Matthew Podwysocki, Oguz Bastemur, Shawn Cicoria, Toby Bradshaw and Tomi Paanananen. I wax on quite a bit there about what they did and why we are greatful. So a big thank you to all of you! Rockwell Automation has brought on board a bunch of new folks to work on Thali. Some are Rockwell Automation employees but many are working through two companies that Rockwell has brought on board, Hiqo and Janea.
