I tended to try to find excuses to use a technology i wanted to get experience with in the projects I was working on.

You can build a desktop app in angular, I've heard, and what your boss doesn't understand won't hurt him.

And if it's a good idea, then bonus, you can sell him on that. If he starts seeing you using web tech in your apps he may even hand you web projects.

One thing you could argue for in terms of a webified desktop app is its ability to stay updated and current, but also to give a look and feel more familiar to less adept computer users who are used to web style interfaces.

Maybe its your boss who is unable to move forward. Maybe he can with the right motivation, or at least you can unstick yourself.

Just some ideas to throw at you. I wish you luck.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
