  • Deploying NextJS app to mobile App Stores using CapacitorJS
    The problem was I had to rewrite a lot of code to convert it to react-native-web to support native components. So I asked around the team for some perspective. One suggested CapacitorJS by Ionic. It was the perfect solution for the requirement! - Source: / 15 days ago
  • PWAs wont replace native iOS apps

  • Building Apps with Tauri and Elixir
    For the longest time, building desktop apps was a daunting task to web developers. That is, until technologies like Electron made creating these apps more approachable to a wider audience. Today, we’ve got a wide array of native applications built with solutions like Electron, Tauri, Capacitor, and many more. While these are great solutions, sometimes configuration can be tricky and the applications we create can... - Source: / 8 months ago
  • Bare Metal Rust in Android

  • Getting Started with PayloadCMS & Vue JS
    Ionic Framework UI Components are used to build a website and then a mobile application is built using Ionic Capacitor. Ionic UI components are not required but are used for UX. The vue js code presented here will work fine in a separate application. - Source: / 9 months ago

  • Svelte is great for junior developers!
    You want to export your Svelte project into mobile? don’t worry Capacitor has you covered. There is also Svelte Native but the project is more or less dead. Source: 10 months ago
  • Expo – open-source platform for making universal apps for Android, iOS, and web
    > “Make a progressive web app”: yes, that might be the way to go; provided you can get the users to ‘install’ it on their devices. Assuming you're talking about the not-well-known process of adding PWAs to the Home screen, it's worth noting that you can package web apps for app store distribution as well. - Source: Hacker News / 11 months ago
  • Expo – open-source platform for making universal apps for Android, iOS, and web
    You might want to check out CapacitorJS - It’s more web than RN and depending on what you’re doing might not feel as native, but it’s pretty easy to make a solid app with it. - Source: Hacker News / 11 months ago
  • React PWA + service workers !< than native apps
    But if you want the webdev experience but you want to deploy natively, you can use Capacitor. Capacitor will wrap your web app and expose some commonly required native APIs to your JavaScript. Capacitor is created by the Ionic team. Ionic offers some good components that can make your app feel a bit more native like a stack router with "swipe to go back," as well as a handful of other components which are styled...

  • Working With Appwrite Databases, Vue, Ionic & Capacitor
    Ionic Framework components are used to create the mobile interface and Ionic Capacitor will be used to package the web application for deployment on to mobile devices. - Source: / about 1 year ago
  • Do you use Electron apps? If you have issues with Chrome's dominance and or care about the open web, do you have any objections to using them?
    I'm fine with using Electron apps but they do use lots of RAM. If I can I'd use the apps in Firefox instead to save some, since I always have Firefox open anyway. I could also install native iOS apps on my M1 Mac with PlayCover. Though, any tradeoffs I make with using Electron apps like lots of RAM are worthwhile if the app itself is very good / has a lot to offer, like VS Code. Sometimes it makes a lot of sense...

  • Are there an apps to install custom fonts on Galaxy S22 and be able to use them in 3rd party apps?
    In case you're wondering specific about Obsidian, its not a native Android app with a typical Android settings menu to choose a specific font, like some Android apps have. It uses the Capacitor framework, its basically a mobile equivalent of Electron: built with HTML CSS and JS. The app allows writing custom CSS, so if I wanted to have a custom font I'd write font-family: SF Pro;. Source: about 1 year ago
