Native Client (NaCl)

Hi!

Very effort to run Orthanc in NaCl?

The main advantage is portability.
If easy migration, worth it!
Where to start?

Thanks!

Hello,

FYI : http://vtk.1045678.n5.nabble.com/VTK-and-PNaCl-td5723625.html

Unfortunately, no answer from Kitware so far… The first step is really to understand whether VTK can be used together with a viewport from NaCl. If anybody has hint about this, I would be very glad to hear about it!

Cheers,

Hello Vinicius,

I do not think there is a need to port the Orthanc server to Pepper/NaCl, as binary packages are already available for Windows and Linux. An unofficial Mac OS port is also available thanks to Ryan Walklin:

The work on an official Mac OS port will start as soon as I am able to find funds for my hospital to buy an Apple computer, e.g. if we win the “Zénobe Award” for social innovation:

In my opinion, PNaCl is rather a very good candidate to enhance the Web interface of Orthanc (aka. Orthanc Explorer), e.g. with native 3D display, hence my question to Kitware team.

Cheers,
Sébastien-
