comment Can PHP be used for desktop application development?
Yup, I have tried it since then, but there are a lot of bugs and missing docs (no bashing of titanium intended, the eclipse-based IDE is very cool, but it still needs a lot). Air is proprietary and dev is hard under linux. I am exploring the possibility of building my own wrapper around webkit through QT.

comment Functional Low-Level language that can use a webkit view
@NicholasSmith: I know, but AFAIK, QT-Webkit makes your app much larger; besides, I don't really like the ethos/license of QT. Still an option though, I am considering it.

comment Functional Low-Level language that can use a webkit view
@Ryathal: this is exactly what I want, only two things; 1 - this has to work offline, 2 - I want to make use of local capabilities such as filesystem (there is a file browser in the app)

comment Functional Low-Level language that can use a webkit view
thing is most people don't really understand "prototype-based", plus I don't really care about the prototyping part, what I do care is that they are functional in the broad sense, like described here: stackoverflow.com/questions/3962604/…. I edited my question as per your suggestion nonetheless.

comment Functional Low-Level language that can use a webkit view
I am not very strict on the meaning of functional language. What I mean is a language where functions are first-class citizens (like js). And this is not the titanium I mean. I will edit my question and add the correct links

comment Create my own database system
I am following the steps you suggested. 1,2,3 are no problem. However, I am stumped by #4. In the case of large amounts of data, how would I load in memory only the relevant parts? I thought of storing everything as binary data and keep another index file, but what if the user is not querying by index? I still would have to loop through the whole file...I guess it's time for another question

And for anyone coming here looking for the same answers: I find flockDB to be the best candidate to learn, the codebase is really small, the code very readable (although I don't speak scala) and easy to understand.

Very nice indeed. I was on the verge of accepting this. I didn't because I thought yannis's answer to be more to the point, and more likely to help people having the same question. But this was definitely encouraging. Thanks a lot.
