The context here is that I have an existing suite of V2 OS.js applications, as iFrames.
I’m looking to move to V3 and my first step is to decide how best to write our new applications: iFrame or native. Later I’ll need to decide whether to port the existing apps as IFrame or rewrite them as native.
Considering just the new applications: should they be native or iFrame? After previous discussions I’m pretty convinced that I should be building native apps, I want to use OS.js libraries, I want to exploit the environment.
My problem is that the apps we are writing are a bit specialised, use some very nice graphing libraries and other such stuff. Those libraries are easy to use from simple HTML/JS code, we don’t need React or Angular or indeed any framework. Is it possible to create a “vanilla” native app? Just a simple HTML page that has access to my chosen libraries and OS.js. Or is that just iFrame in disguise? Maybe I need to bite the bullet and go to HyperApp?
