Submission + - Herding Cats: Developing a cross-platform hybrid web app (grano.la) 1

MBAFK writes: In this article Joseph from MiserWare describes the evolution and some of the technology used to develop a hybrid web-app (meaning native applications that work in conjuction with a web service) available on PCs, laptops, and servers for Linux, Windows, and VMware. Over 4 years of development he learned many things the hard way, including:
  • Use a high-level language for native application development unless you absolutely cannot.
  • Use the same language for your clients and your backend as much as possible.
  • Get your logging straightened out early on.
  • Try to encourage widespread deployment of the clients by individuals.
  • Rewrite only as dictated by your requirements.
  • Don’t be afraid to rewrite if you really need to.
