As with any development framework, Cordova can suffer from some shortcomings. Join Tom Duffy as he explains what you leave behind when choosing Cordova for cross-platform development.
- [Instructor] As with any hybrid cross-platform app,…those created with Cordova can suffer…from performance issues.…Running code inside a web browser…means the code is interpreted by the browser…rather than compiled and executed natively.…Sure, you can provide slick interfaces animations,…but flickering device rotations…and slow start-up times will give you away every time.…The tools can be a problem as well.…Although it can be really nice…to choose your own tools for development,…almost certainly those tools…aren't optimized for mobile development.…
Instead, they are optimized for web development…as they should be.…Cordova as a tool…tries to minimize this via the conversion process.…But apps created solely in Cordova…won't be able to take advantage…of all those new features…provided in the platform-specific tools.…Debugging is a central feature…in developing any app.…In a Cordova app,…when something goes wrong universally,…usually your web tools can help you fix it.…But what if something goes wrong…on only one supported platform?…
