Yes. I guess the idea here is to make osbuild development a bit more like
sugarizer development, with the goal of lowering the barrier and to keep
the workflow almost identical for both.

We have env.isStandalone() to distinguish between running inside an
activity and in a plain web browser. But I suppose we will need a way to
distinguish between a plain web browser and Sugarizer. We could just use a
well known localstorage key... If it exists it's Sugarizer, otherwise plain
web browser. And maybe change isStandalone to getMode (activity, browser,
sugarizer) or something. The naming is not really well thought but I hope
it gives the idea.
