Hi,

I'm developing a multi-platform app (Android, iOS and PWA) and I wanna develop a MVP fast as possible so I'm gonna choose Ionic as a kick-off. But I wanna know from you guys, which framework do you prefer, which one is the best one for a multi-platform app? and why?

Thank you!

Hey!

We're using React Native in our office for apps. It greatly depends on your preferred programming language, as there are many different frameworks for different languages.

What's your preferred programming language?

I'm a old front-end developer, so I didn't have a programming school as JAVA or C... and I'm learning JS as a programming language, it's hard, but I'm loving it. I'm learning VueJS... I don't know if I can say that JS is a programming language, but this is what I'm investing on for the moment.

I would only recommend react native or the real native one because all the others only create a better browser. 😔

That's at least my last information.

I've used ionic for a very long time now. Cannot speak for react native, but as PWA it does a great job. I heard that they now even released stable react support (formerly it was only possible to use it with angular)

What I will probably dive into soon is flutter. This is the most promising app framework for me right now 😊

Wow, thanks @27leaves, maybe I'll bother you about some Ionic issues in the future, hahaha...

Hi,

I'm using and developing Apache Royale. A new technology that can output HTML/JS/CSS and other options (hope WASM in the future). It comes from Apache Flex programing model that was so successful in the past. So the languages used are AS3 and MXML.
We are very happy with our first Application due to the amazing performance and the productivity it offers.
Also the concepts in the framwork like Strand/Beads or PAYG (Pay-as-you-go) makes it brings fresh air to modern development.

You can see more here: Apache Royale™ - Code once. Run everywhere.

We tried to get the essence of AS3 and MXML and combine with the essence of HTML/JS/CSS so we get best of both worlds. Hope we get something very cool and maybe something that could be the next trend in front end technology (hope! :))

Hope you could try and let us know what you think :)

Thanks!
