Welcome to ALP Software Development Kit documentation. This is
the start page from which you find faster the most significant

New to ALP?
Active Local Pages is an execution engine, browser and tools
for stand alone applications development which employs well-known
WEB programming techniques. I.e. with ALP you can build
applications that will run on the desktop just like any other
desktop application (for example written in C, VB, Delphi) but you
use WEB programming techniques and skills to do so. Still ALP
needs no network functionality, nor WEB server components to run
the applications (no matter that it resembles the functionality
usually associated with a WEB server). The applications built with
ALP will not be restricted by firewalls, security restrictions
(like in XP SP2) and can be considered equivalent to any other
application built for the desktop in other language/tool, just the
way the applications are written is another and more convenient
than usual for many purposes. ALP is more compatible with the
different Microsoft Windows versions than many other development
tools and provides huge set of components that allow the developer
create portable and self-sufficient products. Read more ...
