    HTML5 and javascript replacement for local offline mode


    I would like to implement a client interface for adding Metadata on Image files. User's Metadata is uniquely identified by picture coordinates and it is show when the end user "mouse over" those coordinates.

    I know this can quiet easily be done with HTML5 and Javascript or other client side libraries on the web. (For example Stipple and Thinklink are doing those things).

    However, I wish to create a similar interface that needs to be entirely local and offline. meaning:

    1.Picture's Metadata is encapsulated and saved on client local PC as long with original picture. (saved with a unique extension file)

    2. No Browser involved. When user double clicks his newly saved file , The picture image is shown as long with Metadata interactivity base on user's mouse movement. (A dedicated viewer)

    I am now considering the fastest development technology stack to implement such project.

    I know HTML and JavaScript supports offline mode as well but in terms of user experience I wish the interface will be as clean as possible displaying only the picture and its metadata with no menus or navigation tool bars.

    Kindly appreciate your advice.

    It sounds like you may need a program like Visual Basic or VB.net or etc., to create a stand alone program / executable file; that can be accessed and used by a computer's operating system. That might be your best approach; to forgo browser interaction all together and use software to create a program, to do what your wanting to do.
