WHAT IS THE BEST PLATFORM TO DEVELOP WEB APPLICATIONS ON?

Before considering a web app development project, decisions must be made with regard to the choice of framework used for development. Think of the framework as a support platform used to hold together an application whilst it is being constructed. The choice of the framework may dictate which features your app will have. This makes it a crucial stage of web application development. The truth is that simply having a web application is not necessarily enough to guarantee success. Customers are continually following the latest trend or freshest idea, so it is very important to identify your target audience and the reasons for why they would want or need to use it.

Here we’ve listed some of the latest web application frameworks that are popular with developers:

Laravel:

Laravel is an open-source PHP web framework. It is one of the best toolkits for web application development. Web applications created with Laravel are highly structured and practical. This framework has a suite of functionalities, including the basic features of PHP frameworks such as CodeIgniter, Yii, along with programming languages such as Ruby on Rails. These factors together speed up the web app development process. A web app built using Laravel is very secure as it is safe-guarded against web-hacking. Laravel is ideally suited to creating the best quality e-commerce websites.

Codeigniter:

Codeigniter is a PHP framework that’s simple to use but is rich in features, it’s a great toolkit for web app development. Codeigniter has been built for developers looking for a simple and elegant toolkit with which to create fully-featured web applications. This framework is supplied with excellent tuition that is very easy to follow. Codeigniter provides a collection of libraries that are connected to the database, and can perform multiple operations. If you're a newbie PHP developer, Codeigniter is a great place to start.

AngularJS

AngularJS is a powerful JavaScript-based open-source development framework that is maintained by Google. This framework is used by Google itself, as well as others such as YouTube, Paypal, Netflix, Microsoft and other giants in the web app development industry. In terms of speed, AngularJS can be considered as the best front-end framework for web application development because of its short loading time. This framework is best employed for Video Streaming Apps, E-commerce / mobile commerce, Travel Apps, Weather Apps, Social media apps, and User-Review Applications. It is used predominantly to create dynamic web applications. Angular implements the MVC method.

WHAT DO I NEED TO DEVELOP A WEB APPLICATION?

To develop a web application you’ll need a web server, a web application environment with which to run the web server on, along with the required tools to build and deploy the web app in whatever language and chosen framework. Next you’ll need a database to store all the app’s data. Lastly, interactive web pages consisting of HTML, CSS and Javascript need to be built enabling the end user to view the web app via their browser.

WHAT IS AN EXAMPLE OF A WEB APPLICATION IN USE?

Google Docs is a prolific web application in Google’s office suite. This application allows you to create a document and save it on your workstation, or on your google drive account. The app also gives the ability to share a document with multiple users and contributors. A key feature of this web application is that it can be accessed and used without an Internet connection… waiting to a time when an internet connection is established where it can synchronise with Google Drive. This feature is fully automatous.

SO HOW MUCH DOES A WEB APP COST TO DEVELOP?

Various factors come in to play when it comes to development costs:

  1. The scope of work
  2. The workflow of the business.
  3. The complexity of the UI & UX
  4. The technical complexity and application features required.
  5. The development framework.
  6. The location of the development team

The more features that need to be implemented, result in more time taken to develop your web app. And as we all know, time is money! Before you can obtain an accurate overall cost of your project, you’ll need a detailed definition of all your web app requirements. But if you’re not there yet, don’t worry Web Choice can help you establish those requirements, by going through step by step with you.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO DEVELOP A WEB APP?

Once again various factors determine the timescale of web application development, generally the main two being overall complexity and which framework has been selection for the build. A minimum viable product focuses on core functionalities, and in such case it’s reasonable to have expectations of going live in 3 to 6 months. As functionalities are added and complexity increased, so too shall the development time. In such cases a detailed plan of the project coupled with a well-written wireframe, will help in delivering an accurate timeframe as to when you can expect completion of your web app.
