While Oomph can work entirely offline with static content such as PDF, PNG, JPG and MP4 it also has extensive support for handling web content, both local & remote. HTML-based content can be used as pages & layers like most other supported content formats.
However, HTML has some limitations, these are related to arbitrary drawing of object/widget regions within HTML files themselves - though this can be achieved with hotspot files.
The following Link types are supported within HTML content:
See the Cheat Sheet for exact details. Primarily this mechanism is limited to navigational directives and excludes inline elements.
As HTML already supports links, Oomph links within HTML are written using a navto: prefix (or URI scheme). Oomph treats navto: links as hotspot directives. This allows navigation elements to be invoked directly from the HTML instead (of using an external hotspots file).
<a href=”navto:PCover-1”>Link to Cover Page</a>
Normal HTML links such will open in a built in browser inside the Oomph app. It is also possible to open weblinks in a fullscreen browser using the syntax fullscreenbrowser://oomphhq.com.
WebClips are a very fast and easy way to reuse web content inside an Oomph app.
Any rectangular section of any publicly webpage can be accessed as a WebClip. WebClips can then be placed on any Oomph page, e.g. in a PDF. Additionally WebClips can have different styling applied than found on the original webpage. For example, the text size can be increased to be more readable on a tablet.
