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.

Felgo

Felgo shines in rapid prototype development and fast iterations.It also has a very short learning curve compared to many other technologies that promise "code once, deploy everywhere."It is not appropriate if you are not willing to mess with the licensing related to Qt but I am still waiting for a clear answer on my doubts from the Felgo team.

Pros

Apache Cordova

  • Cordova makes it very easy to develop apps for multiple platforms. The setup is very simple when it comes to creating a project, adding platforms, building and deploying apps. If you have a little mobile app development experience, all you need to know is HTML, CSS, Javascript and only a handful of cordova commands to get started with your hybrid app.
  • Cordova provides a simple solution to access any and all of the device features through native plugins. You have a host of third-party and cordova plugins available to use device features like filesystem, camera, health kit, location services etc. You can also write your very own plugins and use them for your cordova based apps.
  • Cordova is free to use! The only cost you will bear is the individual mobile platform developer program enrollment cost to deploy your apps to those platforms.

I am happy with the constant feedback that I am receiving from the team. Although most of it is marketing related, there are some interesting and valuable materials that they have been pushing to ease my learning.

The quality of the documentation and the ease of use may be some important values to take into account.

We believe that the agility that we have acquired until now for developing apps for our business cases give this framework an important lead.

As with any product, Felgo has some edges to it, but from our past experiences evaluating "code once, deploy everywhere" platforms, we were really surprised at how fast the team went from exploring, into playing and presenting prototypes in very little time.

The dev cycle is really fast as I can get an almost instantaneous feedback on the changes that I make. And it is refreshing to see how I am able to target several platforms at once.

The javascript plus QML combination made it really easy to pick up for me and I am certain sure that many devs can migrate from Web only into multi-platform in a fast manner.

And there is also the possibility to implement C++ code if the need arises to support and bridge native libraries.

Alternatives Considered

Apache Cordova

Apache Cordova is the mother of all other frameworks. The Ionic developed framework is well suited for development but most of their features are offered by paid services.As Apache Cordova is open source and has a license to modify it, it has no legal problems to work with it. Also, most well-known IDEs recognize the Apache Cordova snippets.

Felgo

Felgo has the shortest learning curve making the teams productive almost from week 1.It also has easy tooling with fast iterations without having long compile and deployment times.So far, we believe that this product was a good fit to our current talent and resources.As with all development solutions, it will really depend on the internal development culture and maybe more complex scenarios could go best with a native approach.

Return on Investment

Apache Cordova

  • 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.

Felgo

  • Faster output from current resources.
  • Leveraging current abilities and talent.
  • Constant feedback from internal clients in shorter cycles.
