Hybrid Development: Cross-platform at a Glance

Each platform works in its own way and requires a different approach. This makes it a time-consuming process to develop software that offers the same experience on both Android and iOS. With the arrival of Ionic this is history. This Hybrid Development tool makes it possible to automatically translate software to any platform.

    What is Ionic?

    Ionic is a free open source framework. It has a huge library of components for apps on all platforms, such as iOS, Android, Electron and the Web. These components make it possible to translate between platforms. This allows you to write the software in any technology of your choice (HTML, CSS, Javascript) and deploy it on any platform. 

    When Hybrid Development?

    The choice of Hybrid Development depends very much on how you plan to make the software available. For example, if you are launching a Saas tool that needs to serve many users on different platforms, it is advisable to set it up hybrid. This has the following advantages:

    1. Cheaper and easier
      Only one source code needs to be written for all platforms. The developer can write it in his own language, bypassing complicated native knowledge. This saves time and money.
    2. Platform-independent
      Once the software is launched, it is not platform-dependent. This increases market and usage.
    3. Simple updates
      New updates are applied everywhere at once.
    4. Offline available
      The nice thing about a hybrid app is that they are also available offline.

    Now also with VueJS

    Recently, Ionic launched its link to VueJS. This is good news as we at SevenLab specialise in applying VueJS Front end. This is because it fits perfectly with the Laravel .PHP framework. The arrival of Ionic Vue makes it easy for us to implement the software on any platform.
