Writing a device updater? Seriously consider WebUSB @numworks

Adafruit 2018 0098
Writing a device updater? Seriously consider WebUSB! @ NumWorks.

WebUSB is a set of functions that that let you do USB communications in JavaScript straight from a web browser. It perfectly matches all our requirements:
A perfect match…
1. It is available on a wide range of devices and operating systems (Android, Windows, macOS and Linux)
2. It works out-of-the-box on most operating systems
3. We only need to write one JavaScript codebase for all devices and operating systems. Couldn’t get any smaller!

You’re going to hear a lot about WebUSB soon, this is a good start. Also, NumWorks is a cool graphing calculator.
