I wrote a while back about Cappuccino, a web app framework that parallels Apple’s Cocoa framework for desktop apps. That was back in September, when 280 North had just released an amazing presentation app called 280Slides that essentially brought Apple’s Keynote to the web. Cappuccino has evolved a lot since then, and 280 North just made a big leap forward by releasing Atlas, which is roughly the web equivalent of Interface Builder for Mac desktop apps.

What does that mean, exactly? Basically, Atlas enables you to build an entire user interface for your app without coding anything at all. That’s great news, because designers who are perfectly capable of planning a good UI might not be competent enough in the coding department to make it a reality. Atlas bridges the gap. If we want to see web apps that are on par with our favorite desktop software, the right tools are important. Kudos to 280 North for developing one of them.
