Single page dynamic apps for e-learning or dynamic showcases

HTML5/JS Apps

What we build

At Outsourcify, we create a purely HTML/JavaScript application, also called “single-page application (SPA)” as it usually runs from a single web page. Our team, for example, has years of experience in developing e-learning modules with such technologies, either using custom minimal JavaScript frameworks based on jQuery or some of the main JavaScript frameworks in the industry: Vue.JS, AngularJS or React JS.

Different projects require different technologies. In general, however, the rise of the Node.JS runtime has provided a wealth of tools for building real-time applications (NPM, Gulp, Grunt, and Webpack), and the evolution of front-end JavaScript frameworks now allows us to create websites that are faster with richer dynamic interfaces.

We’d be happy to help you build your next dynamic web application using the latest front-end technologies. Our team has some solid experience in building various types of products with those technologies.

Choosing JavaScript Frameworks

All the main JavaScript frameworks in the industry are open-source, so the cost is not an issue to worry about. What mostly are taken into considerations are their popularity – the more popular mean more online resources, tutorials, and potential lifespan –, the features they offer, and their ease of use.

Vue.JS, AngularJS or React have been around for quite some time now, and they are considered three good choices for building real-time applications, each of which has its own default and advantage.

At Outsourcify, we have worked on projects with these three frameworks, yet with a recently growing preference for Vue.JS. Vue.JS is easy to understand; it can only be used in some parts of a project or it can be integrated in an existing project. Vue.JS is simpler and lighter, and its concept is taken from the best of Angular and React: a virtual DOM, reactive & compose-able view components.

Comparing Front-end JavaScript Frameworks

Vue.JS

  • Coding speed
  • Flexible and lightweight
  • Can be mixed with other technologies
  • Much simpler but often better
  • Not as huge as the other two communities

Angular JS

  • A full blown Single-Page Application framework
  • More complex coding, especially with TypeScript
  • Developed by Google
  • Many tools available to be used
  • Can be confusing due to the massive change from Angular 1 to 2 and then 4
  • Can be used to develop hybrid mobile apps

React JS

  • Can be hard to understand
  • Developed by Facebook but recently became fully open-source
  • A big online community and lots of resources available
  • JSX is used instead of HTML
  • Can be used to develop native apps with React Native
