Gluon For Mobile Developers
There is an increasing demand from companies to create mobile applications. In most cases, the mobile application needs to be connected to an existing enterprise system. Today, developers of mobile applications have a number of choices. They can create native applications, which means that they have to use native languages (Objective C or Swift on iOS, and Java on Android) in order to create a native application. While those native languages allow to provide a great user experience, they require special skills and at least 2 codebases.
Not only does native development require knowledge of two platforms, it also requires developers to track the evolution of these native languages and SDKs, as they move incredibly fast. Therefore, creating a mobile app is a relatively slow process, and maintaining it in a way that it works with new mobile devices or upgraded operating systems can quickly become very expensive.
This is where Gluon has solutions that can drastically improve developer productivity.
Building The UI
The user interface needed for those mobile applications can be created using Gluon Scene Builder, or it can be programmatically created using the users preferred IDE with the help of the Gluon IDE plugins. With more than half a million downloads, Gluon Scene Builder is a proven and mature product that allows designers and developers to create a user interface using a simple drag-and-drop interface.
