Legacy applications already on VFP are a good candidate. If you plan to move to iOS and Android apps, VFP is not for you. Also, in future access to VFP programmers may be limited. You could use VFP as a powerful database tool. I know of many programmers who love to exploit the features of VFP to create easy to use applications.

I always used and develop API with RapidAPI so also recommend to new people to use and learn about APIs. If we discuss about new user it's so easy to learn and develop API free of cost as well as paid subscription. My experience with RapidAPI is awesome.

Cons
Microsoft
  • Microsoft stopped selling this and stopped supporting it in 2014. It still works on Windows 10, but if you have a problem, you are on your own.
  • The look and feel of screens and displayed text is getting a little dated.
  • It's really designed for desktop/server environments rather than the cloud.

  • Little issue for new user while designing new API through user interface of RapidAPI.
  • Not sure about the security of the API so not possible for prodcution mode.

Microsoft
Although MS has discontinued support of VFP there is a good community of programmers that are available for help. In fact we have several programmers at Apptread that are skilled not only in VFP but also .NET so that if there is a need to migrate some parts of applications to .NET , it is easy for us to do that.

We are only using FoxPro because it is the only way to add custom plugins into the software we use to manage our stock. FoxPro is a semi-oriented object language and should clearly not be compared with recent technologies.

Firebase is also good tools for user who are working on APIs but the marketplace of Rapid API is non comparative. Like how it's creates APIs and testing phase, supporting of multiple API types etc. These features makes Rapid API very unique from else ones.

Return on Investment
Microsoft
  • Positive impact is that the value of FoxPro applications has continued to increase over the years, so we are in high demand for our services.
  • Negative impact is that sometimes you have difficult to support scenarios where you might have to spend many hours to just keep something functional.
  • A negative impact is that this language is taught in very few places, either in schools, or private learning centers.

  • Front-end Devs like me not want to invest money for back-end so Rapid API is best option to try and design API's in very easy way.
  • In case of using the more of Rapid API we can take subscription which is also on nominal prices.
  • For front-end devs not need to learn back-end skills in Rapid API.
