Maybe - if you create an App as your output; no if you just create HTML5 help or WebHelp or PDFs.
Hi Jeff - thanks for your reply - do you mean only if it created as a mobile app as shown in this list here:
If so, does anyone know a way of converting a Responsive HTML5 output into a standalone web application?
Yes, the mobile app output.
What are you trying to achieve?
I'm trying to create a standalone desktop application from the generated output.
I had previously used AirHelp but believe it is now 32-bit only (pending confirmation from Adobe which has been requested).
I have also come across Electron (see here: https://sharpnotions.com/blog/electron-is-it-right-for-building-cross-platform-applications/) which serve as a replacement but first I would need to convert my RoboHelp HTML output into a web application.
Most help writers are just using their HTML5 help output on webservers on the Internet and connecting it to their applications - the output itself isn't an application (i.e. you can't do much with it except look things up). Even with AIRHelp, it was just a standalone wrapper as a way of serving up your content. Electron looks like just another type of wrapper with a Chrome browser baked in.
Just to add to Jeff's inputs, think of the help as a web site rather than a web application.
Actually, I think the Robohelp output (responsive and frameless) counts as a "web application" for electron purposes (HTML, CSS and JS).
I *think* you would copy the output to the required app directory, with the other required electron files as outlined here, https://www.electronjs.org/docs/tutorial/application-distribution, then the packaging process would generate an exe using that content.
Or at least that's my reading of it. I haven't tried it.
How it will work in practice is a different question.
(Assuming it all works, you might be able to automate the app packaging using the Post Generation Script field in the preset.)
