Low Code Development Platform

Any business requirements are suitable for Low Code Development Platform, and you get a faster MVP development done and still have some time to improve the User Interface.If the project requires too many complex screens and complex queries just may need some integration or take into consideration a non-Low Code Development Platform, but everything is possible with Low Code Development Platform if you have the right support from the vendor or at least an experienced senior developer in the technology being used.

NativeScript

I would recommend for building native apps for iOS or Android if 1) the developers come from a web dev background; 2) the company can't afford separate teams for Android and iOS; 3) the team wants to use Vue.js.
I would not recommend if the app needs a web version and is simple enough to be a hybrid app.

NativeScript

  • NativeScript allows our front-end developers to build actually native mobile apps with the javascript we already know well.
  • It is very quick to get started using NativeScript. We can generally onboard a new developer into the project in just a day or two.
  • The open source community surrounding NativeScript allows our team to find solutions to open issues quickly, as well as give back by fixing some issues ourselves. Work can progress quicker with the plugins other developers have already built.

Cons

Low Code Development Platform

  • The source code behind almost all low code platform needs to continue an improvement process to speed up the PaaS (Platform as a Service).

NativeScript

  • Nativescript runs everything on a single thread. i.e., the UI thread. If you want to offload some processing, you have to use web workers. This experience can be improved in the future releases.
  • Currently NativeScript only have hot reload when you change the UI file or Css file. There is no hot reload when you change Js/Ts file, unlike Google's Flutter. This is also something which NativeScript will get in the future releases.
  • In current version of NativeScript, there is no livesync when building with webpack. This feature will be added with NativeScript 4.x. (an RC version for 4.x is already available)

The hybrid is ok but native is better for performance and the right use case I want to go for is the performance without dealing with too many development tools.

My focus has been, and must remain, with obtaining support from web resources over that of paid support programs. Many companies, including those of government agencies, do not have a budget sufficient for paying large sums of money to other organizations to answer questions. Even in cases where an organization did purchase support programs, developers often found that the delays in obtaining responses to development issues was excessive. I give NativeScript the lowest possible rating, due to the fact that their website content is severely outdated and of little use to a developer in a crunch. The NativeScript environment may be far better than I have been able to report, but held back from excelling due to poor support content. Being that I am often asked to push the boundaries in various areas, improper documentation is highly detrimental to a development team, and thuss a review. I would be more than happy to improve this review as the content of the support documentation provided by the NativeScript team makes its way to their website in the form of real-world examples which are applicable to all versions, or at least the most recent versions, of their product.

Low Code Development Platform

It's just faster, and you get the same results in a shorter amount of time, results are even better once you get the right experience. I think companies get a huge asset changing to Low Code Development Platform.

NativeScript

We have previously evaluated Xamarin, and the time it took us to get started, install all of the software, license it, learn Xamarin, and create a app that runs and debugs on connected mobile devices was painful. With NativeScript and the Playground, we're able to get started fast - in less than 5 minutes, and be running a mobile app on multiple connected devices. Furthermore, we could make changes and see live changes on the mobile apps.

NativeScript

  • One of the projects we had to build was a rewrite of an existing mobile application. We could acomplish the complete rewrite in about a month along with general improvements and a couple additions.
  • More and more clients are specifically looking for NativeScript developers, and since we are focused on NativeScript we've had an influx of new clients asking for quotes.
