HTML5 the new way for Silverlight app

The /r/silverlight seems dead, so thought I'd ask my question here.

I have a need to build a quick little app where the user base (all desktop) isn't large (2000 total users; 40 max concurrent). Silverlight makes it easy with all of the UI controls and data bindings. It seems like I'm loosing that using HTML5/Ajax/JS/CSS to do all that same work.

Controls I plan to use:

  • treeview
  • datagrid
  • AutoSuggestBox

Anyone else battling this decision?
