Thanks Tobias.

We can't do the entire thing as a web app because it is a peer-to-peer application, basically a decentralized anonymous microblogging system (similar functionality to Twitter). It's designed for use in countries like China and Saudi Arabia, as a way for democracy activists to exchange information without fear of censorship. Because of this, doing it as a simple web app would defeat the point, I'm afraid.

Regarding build process, do you think it is likely that we would need client-side-addons for our application? (our goal is that our UI will be quite similar to Twitter's).
