Hybrid App development

Hybrid apps are a blend, hence the name hybrid, of both native and web solutions. Where the core of the application is written using web technologies. In this article we dive deep into hybrid app technology.

This solution is a blend, hence the name hybrid, of both native and web solutions. Where the core of the application is written using web technologies (HTML, CSS, and JavaScript), which are then encapsulated within a native application. Through the use of plugins, these applications can have full access to the mobile device’s features. To better understand this approach, let’s break down how it all fits together.

The heart of a hybrid-mobile application is still just an application that is written with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. However, instead of the app being shown within the user’s browser, it is run from within a native application and its own embedded browser, which is essentially invisible to the user. For example, an iOS application would use the WKWebView to display our application, while on Android it would use the WebView element to do the same function.

This code is then embedded into a native application wrapper using a solution like Apache Cordova (also known as PhoneGap) or Ionic’s Capacitor. These solutions create a native shell application that is just the platform’s webview component in which it will load your web application. This gives you the ability to create and publish true native applications that can be submitted to each of the platform’s app stores for sale.

CHALLENGES IN HYBRID APP DEVELOPMENT
With a native app, you have either an iOS code or an Android code, and you have to write code either for one of them or two sets of code. However, if you are using a hybrid framework, what you could do is build your code, and the framework will translate everything into two different platforms.
For native apps, the scope of testing is confined to either iOS or Android, but in the case of Hybrid apps, the extent of testing gets wider. the most common issues mobile application testers face daily. However, many other challenges can be case-specific.
A Hybrid app needs to be tested on two different platforms:
iOS
Android

In hybrid app development, you can use a single code to build an app that can run on both platforms. One common problem that hybrid mobile app developers face is the testing of the hybrid app as they need to test it on both platforms; iOS and Android

If we have basic knowledge of hybrid app development then we can face enough challenges. Yes, we can develop a hybrid app at the bachelor's level.
