C0D44526511dI hate electron, but I love some -> a select few <- apps that have been made with it.
Cross platform is easier to build using non native frameworks (no I don't consider reactnative as native)
Pros and cons, dev shops want quick $$$, clients want cross platform, and somewhere along the way native specialists started becoming obsolete.
Also, starting flame wars this early into your devRant career? You're a brave soul!!
-pthread2911dQT is crossplatform and QT is better than electron. Why do you need whole fucking browser to just run an app? Although native is always better than this cross-platform framework.
Plasticnova133911dWhat is the task at hand?
What are the clients requirements, and how much has been quoted/budgeted for the project?
How much time do you have to deliver?
What skill sets do you have available to you to utilize for this project?
Who will be maintaining the project after delivery, and what skills sets do they have available?
Are there any commercial support needs to consider?
Some of us have to consider these things before we do something, it’s not as easy as just picking a solution and using that because I personally think it’s better. Believe me, I wish it were.
Monk16311dThing is React is easier and saner than native development for making UI's.
Android XML thinghie sucks. iOS and its ecosystem is pure diarrhoea.
Both Google and Apple are trying to mimick React recently (SwiftUI, Jetpack Compose)
@C0D4 idk how I'll feel about sacrificing performance in favor of muh one codebase atop another layer of abstraction but Kotlin and Swift look pretty much the same syntax wise with only a few variations which is why I am not too keen on developing them in Flutter, Cordova or React
Overheads with something like electron is ridiculously low. It's cheap and easy to build apps off of it.
I still don't like it though.
