App (Application)

A Tulip app is a custom Javascript payload that is run on a web browser running the Tulip Player code, or on the official downloadable Tulip application running on a PC, tablet or mobile phone.

The application logic determines what visuals are shown to a user according to the defined steps in the application, and the state of variables defined in relation to that application.

Steps include media such as video, images, pdf files, as well as control elements such as buttons with defined triggers, and form inputs such as number and string inputs, image upload etc. A Tulip App also can interpret inputs from devices attached to the tablet it is running on such as a barcode scanner or camera.
