What is Raster?

Raster is a Javascript library that makes use of Dynamic-HTML to implement desktop-like GUI controls in a web browser.

This library is intended for making corporate intranet applications with interfaces requiring dynamic UI controls that can display dense amounts of data records such as front-ends for database administration, report queries, product and server configuration web consoles, etc.

The UI controls in raster are not optimal for developing interfaces aimed at mobile phones and tablets, but rather meant for use in desktop computer web browsers applications.

  • Firefox 3+
  • Chrome 10+
  • Safari 5.0+ (Windows)
