Use HTML5 device orientation to run Windows 8 javascript apps on Android devices


via Use HTML5 device orientation to run Windows 8 javascript apps on Android devices.

For the last year there’s been a good deal of information published on how to use the sensor APIs for Windows 8 device.  However if you are interesting in having portable HTML5 code leveraging device sensors typically required a native approach or 3rd party proprietary solution.  With a bit of work I found you can leverage new device orientation  event listeners in javascript that will mostly duplicate the Windows 8 native device sensor APIs .  And because HTML5 allows you to swap code on the fly you can easily leverage both the native sensor APIs for Windows and the html5 device orientation APIs depending on the device that is running the code. In other words, the same code you have in Visual Studio can be hosted on the web and work for an Android phone or tablet. Cool stuff!
