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.

Webix UI

Webix makes it easy to build a complex Web UI. Combining technologies (like React and Webix) is tricky. Most features work as expected but some are tricky.In way React Components "communicate" and the way a complete Webix Form works is not exactly compatible. Some of these problems are not obvious. However with a good design it is easy to fix. React has to orchestrate the page and each Webix Component / Form is independent from the others and relies only on Rect to integrate.Using Webix alone (iE with the JEt Framework) is trivial but was not enough for our whole application.

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.

  • The Kanban Control allowed to implement a compelling task management system with little effort.
  • The Chart Control made it easy to create our dashboard and it was a lot easier than using D3js as we did before. D3 allows a lot more flexibility but it takes often 10 times longer to get a chart done than using Webix.
  • Support at Webix is very helpful and responsive.

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.

  • Since we are using react as foundation it was difficult to use some features in our environment. In the beginning we tried to have a drag and drop customizable Webix UI combined with React and failed miserably doing so. Current Version has a much better React integration.

Alternatives Considered

I have worked on Appcelerator Titanium and also on Apache Cordova and I find Cordova is a much stable, easy, performant and cost effective solution to developing hybrid mobile apps. I will go with Apache Cordova over Appcelerator Titanium any day.

React was too time consuming. Kendo was another good one, but more expensive and seemed less responsive. [Sencha's] demo didn't seem to justify the price.

Return on Investment

  • Development timeline for making Cordova apps targeting multiple platform is lower than developing individual native apps for each platform.
  • Its easy to learn and set up. Coming from a native app development background, the learning curve for me was fairly small to get started with my hybrid app.

  • It saved us 1000s of USD for just using the Kanban Board instead of developing it from scratch.
