Likelihood to Recommend

Apache Cordova

It is suitable for making portable applications, with almost the same code for several platforms. You can access native features of the device or use an open source plug-in from the repository to create a local database and access the internal storage of the device. It is wonderful for the construction of a native application, through the use of standard web code. It is not recommended for enterprise applications.

Contentful

Coming from WordPress, Contentful feels like content management as it should be. There's no clutter to get rid of, you can simply start building from scratch, and the end product is perfectly tailored to your or your clients needs.

Pros

  • Cordova is a very powerful tool for a JavaScript developer, since by simply developing in JavaScript one becomes a general developer of software and applications by implementing web technologies for various environments.
  • Cordova is not just an HTML application that runs in a browser, it allows you to write native plugins that work with any of the supported platforms, and a JavaScript container will integrate your HTML application with the native code.
  • Cordova does an amazing job in the field of hybrid application is super easy to use and functional.

  • Clean, modern interface (not clunky and outdated, like WordPress)
  • High degree of flexibility (I can structure data any way my clients need)
  • Enables headless frontend (i.e. I can build any frontend I want without having to change my CMS)

Cons

  • It is not completely automatic since if you write individual style information for each platform objective, you can not make Córdova automatically apply the transormation at compile time; you have to change the linked style manually.
  • The support is deficient in general.
  • Configuration and use can be complicated as it requires the use of the command line.

  • Preview of changes prior to publishing
  • The ability to use a spell check plug-in when working on content (it doesn't work well with Grammarly)

Alternatives Considered

We selected Cordova since it provides ease of doing business and ease of use. The best thing about Cordova is that you can code once and run it on multiple platforms. Cordova provides add-ons that connect your code with native features of various mobile platforms. And you do not need to learn anything new since you can use your javascript skills

Very similar to WordPress, but has more organizational properties than square space.

Return on Investment

  • It has a positive impact in general. Cordova is really a great solution for web developers who want to bring their incredible ideas to devices, but they just do not have a lot of time to put into iOS and Android learning curves.
  • Our biggest benefit was that the management of images for multiple devices.
  • Developing with Cordova has drastically reduced the cost of cross-platform deployment.

  • Positive: faster changes and new associates can easily navigate without prior training/knowledge of CMS to make content updates
  • Negative: Our website manager/provider can keep certain abilities (like changing specific images) so they can charge a fee for making the change
