Hybrid Mobile App

  1. 1. When and how to apply hybrid mobile app development HYBRID MOBILE APP
  2. 2. These apps are built with different web technologies such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. The easy explanation for them is that they are enclosed in a native app that use the Web View of the platform to show everything you made in this container, it’s like a full screen browser inside a native app. Choose the platform you're going to use to develop the app. HYBRID MOBILE APP
  3. 3. 01 PROS Speed: Using a hybrid mobile app takes less time than doing it with native apps. Code reuse: While developing a hybrid mobile app you can reuse code to make similar projects, since it is easier. Plugin use: Developers will be able to use plugins along with frameworks such as Phonegap, Appcelerator, Cordova, Ionic, etc. Like a website: Many developers prefer a hybrid mobile app over native applications because the process is similar a building a website. Multi­platform: This means that you can use the app on almost every device with the latest OS such as android, iOS, windows phone, etc. APIs: It gives you access to almost every device built­in features such as camera, contacts, etc.
  4. 4. 02 CONS Tools: There are so many tools used throughout, such as Phonegap, Appcelerator, Cordova, Ionic, etc. Performance: The app’s performance is still dependent of the platform browser capabilities. Less features: You may not be able to use the full features of the device, such as gps, camera, or push notifications. Common: The apps are built with the same function for every type of devices. There are no ‘unique features’ that the user can expect from using it. UI Components: These elements are rendered with typical CSS and may not be show when the app is running, like native elements.  Security: A Hybrid mobile app has better security vulnerabilities than native apps, but if the hybrid app is well­developed it can be as secure as a native one.
  5. 5. 03 Hybrid App Development Develop Hybrid Mobile App with Apache Cordova, first of all, you need to install: Java Development Kit (JDK) 7 or later Download: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/es/java/javase/downloads/index.html Android SDK Android SDK Standalone: http://developer.android.com/sdk/installing/index.html?pkg=tools Or Android Studio: http://developer.android.com/sdk/installing/index.html? pkg=studio node.js You can download node.js from https://nodejs.org/en/
  6. 6. 04 Setting up environment Variables Cordova’s CLI tools require some environment variables to be set in order to function correctly. The CLI will attempt to set these variables for you, but in certain cases you may need to set them manually. The following variables should be updated: Set the JAVA_HOME environment variable to the location of your JDK installation. Set the ANDROID_HOME environment variable to the location of your Android SDK installation. It is also recommended that you add the Android SDK’s tools and platform­ tools directories to your PATH.
