Mobile app development hasn’t been incredibly exciting for a couple of years, but to streamline the suite of software for a project, using the same language and frameworks allows our skills to translate to multiple platforms.
The popular choices for whipping an mvp together already are:
- Vue with cordova/adobe-phonegap (for hybrid apps)
- Vue with onsen-ui (with cordova/adobe-phonegap)
- Vue with quasar
Next year may well be the year of the web component! As popular as react is, web components go back a decade. My first exposure to their power was with Apache Tapestry, a java web component framework. It was a pleasure to develop in but the learning curve was steep. Web component frameworks didn’t appeal much to me until I discovered Vue. In my eyes it is the closest (and better) developer experience I had with tapestry in 2008.
