Improve JavaScript and HTML rendering support in the classic Notes Client

  • the Notes Client has JavaScript support for forms and views for many years, but it is outdated and does not provide much API access
  • make JavaScript a real alternative to LotusScript for classic Notes Client development, cross-platform
  • full form and view event support similar to LotusScript plus mouse/touch events on UI controls
  • update the existing JavaScript engine to modern standards, e.g. by leveraging JavaScriptCore if available on all platforms, which would be the engine to choose in iOS anyway
  • add HTML5 API support like File API to read/write local files and support Ajax requests on any local and remote web server
  • add JavaScript APIs to access Domino data, e.g. via gRPC and a local Proton task
  • add HTML rendering support with modern standards to the Notes Client UI, e.g. by using Chromium Embedded for sidebar panels, in dialog windows opened from LS/JS and for alternative view rendering

    I so would like to see namespaces - global (session level), database, form and so on, having access to the general context from any action.
