We're in that boat - we have a thick client application, that only requires certain features to be web based/mobile based, so it's relatively painless to go from Omnis thick client to wmClient or jsClient.

We're doing a slightly bigger project, and for that I'm looking at using Bootstrap for the website part, Omnis as the middleware and Postgres as the backend.  We're planning to build a RESTful API in Omnis and have the website use that.  We'll still have thick clients connected to the same system as well, so it's going to be an interesting one!
