DabApps uses a well-integrated set of open-source technologies to build backend systems and web and mobile UIs. We select widely-used, reliable technologies that we believe are likely to be well-maintained in future and offer a good trade-off of development speed, features and simplicity.
For mobile applications, we use React Native. Another Facebook-initiated project, this allows rapid creation of native mobile UIs using web-like building blocks that work across iOS and Android.
We believe that the above stack is the best choice for delivering robust, maintainable web and mobile applications to tight deadlines. It has proven to be a stable and scalable set of technologies, and has a direct impact on the speed of our development and project delivery.
