Hybrid Application Development – Cutting Down the Development Cycles
What is a Hybrid application?
The conventional development cycle for a web application development involves three major phases – Web application development, Android application development and iOS application development. Each application is developed individually and requires separate skilled resources for every phase. It is not really cost-efficient to develop applications serving a similar purpose over and over again. Hybrid application comes to your rescue here.
Hybrid Web application – Architecture
The above diagram depicts the simplistic architecture and set of technologies involved in the development of a Hybrid web application. There are three major component of every hybrid web application:
- Backend: The backend could be developed in any desired backend language. The backend will be responsible to provide the services and expose the database to the frontend. The backend services help the frontend code to authenticate the user and provide the data that the user is authorised to view. The general standard of data exchange that is being followed these days involves JSON. However, the web services can be independent and define its own standards as well.
How Hybrid applications are simplifying development cycle?
Hybrid applications isolate the frontend and backend almost entirely. A hybrid application can be built as a standalone front-end consuming REST services from an isolated backend. This allows the front-end developers to focus on the rendering of information rather than waiting for the services to come through. The front-end developers need not worry about the front-end framework that they use. This gives them the flexibility in their development and hence speeds up the development process.
Moreover, a hybrid application brings a major break-through in the mobile application development. With the support of Cordova/Ionic frameworks, the independent front-end codebase can be easily converted to a mobile application using a bunch of commands. Today, Cordova supports almost every mobile operating system which ensures that with the development of frontend, your mobile application is also ready alongside. This nearly eliminates the need for a native developer for every mobile app. Thus, it saves the organisations from the additional cost that they might need to bare for the native app developer.
There are numerous hybrid applications in the market that flaunt excellent UI despite having no native development. Few such examples include LinkedIn mobile application, Uber mobile application as well as Twitter web app. Such excellent brands use hybrid applications as well which justifies that hybrid applications are a definite positive business decision for you to go with.
