Data Sharing Between Apps
The Interop API enables applications to:
- offer functionality to other applications (web and native) by registering Interop methods;
- discover applications which offer methods;
- invoke methods on the user's desktop and across the network;
- stream and subscribe for real-time data using the streaming methods of the Interop API;
Applications which offer methods and streams are called Interop servers, and applications which consume them - Interop clients, and collectively - Interop instances.
Any running instance of an application is identified by its Interop instance, which is a set of known key/value pairs uniquely identifying an application.
