HTML5 : A whole new world

 Whole new world

HTML5 Standard by W3C and what it means to developers and future of HTML5


Its happy ever after for HTML5 developers as The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), has announced that it has finalized the specs for the HTML5 standard. This verdict comes after almost eight years of work. This should allow rich content to work seamlessly across desktop and mobile platforms. The HTML5 standard has been around for years and powers many of your favourite sites. For users of course there is no change, already many browsers support HTML5 features.

"HTML5 brings the next generation of the Web. It wasn't so long ago that the Web was about browsing static documents. Today's Web is a much richer platform. We're now at a stable state that everyone can build to the standard and be certain that it will be implemented in all browsers. If we didn't have complete interoperability, we wouldn't have one Web" - W3C head Jeff Jaffe said of the standard.


Also see the ultra cool video from W3C explaining why you should care about standards like HTML5.


HTML5 has come a long way and have reinvented itself and set ground breaking improvements especially after the Facebook and LinkedIn which abandoned their HTML5 apps in 2012 and 2013 respectively. They went for native solutions owing to many issues such as Device and platform fragmentation,Weak mobile browser implementations and Inadequate tooling. Developer skill immaturity which imposed lack of developers also contributed to downside of HTML5. But others kept the course and have been successful as it is the case of Financial Times.

So what does this mean for the programmer ? and how does the future looks like ?  Well 2014-2017 forecast study anticipates that while HTML5 will progress. While the age old battle native vs. web controversy will continue. However HTML5 will “gain significant traction as a technology for several classes of apps” such as “content-based publishing apps for magazines and electronic books” and enterprise apps. Lets not forget the hybrid apps which will represent a large share of HTML5-based applications over the next years.

The rise of planet of Apps : HTML5



It's hard to take a standpoint in the debate of native vs mobile apps, where everyone are looking at the guise of smartphone development. Well if we are only going to build our future on mobile app development then count me in to jump into the wagon of assumptions. The technology landscape is growing wild and challenging data to expand beyond the small screen. Be it Google glass or Smart TV, we got to admit the fact that apps development is at the cross roads of new and exciting interfaces that mostly uses HTML5 .

Lets take a closer look at the age-old debate that never goes away - Native Apps vs Web Apps. Native apps downloaded to our devices provide faster user experience - even when offline, better security and can be monetised while Web apps provides constant improving features, reasonable development cost and no approval from app store to access. 

There is an interesting article by Business Insider, which talks about mobile consumers and how they love native apps because of the excellent user experience and speedy performance. Its easy to conclude Native apps rule the market with monetization opportunities.

HTML5 web apps, on the other hand, are becoming a fast favorite among enterprise platforms, and a growing number of hugely popular apps are being built around HTML5. Reason ? HTML5 app creation is sustainable- writing apps in different languages for each hosted platform is too costly, and less flexible, while HTML5 based apps are cheaper to create and for all the reasons I have writtern here. Last but not least the developers love the easy life, and thats HTML5 for you.

It's only going to get better for HTML5, numerous app developers are already implementing HTML5 into 'hybrid' native apps too, while Facebook and LinkedIn have done as such in the past. I leave you with this video from TechEd 2013 and Welcome to the rise of planet of Apps !

Angular.js vs Ember.js : The perfect fit for Javascript Framework


 AngularJS

If I have to cut to the chase, Well there is no right or wrong answer for that. It does really depends on what kind of application that you are building. So what are the factors to consider and how to choose wisely? that my friend is the right place to start.

You may want to look here for a fantastic discussion on this topic. Notice that I have left out backbone.js out of this equation, the reason is not because favouritism, I think backbonejs is great tool however the usefulness of it has really gone down with better and finer suit for framework like AngularJS and EmberJS.

EmberJS is sophisticated, it is of great help if you want the framework that takes all the decisions for you. Also EmberJS is better for bigger applications. However AnguarlJS feels easy because you write less code ,straightforward and doesnot try to abstract the html like EmberJS.

I find this video very interesting and love the way Marius describes features straight to the point.


This Q&A is will also help you to get answer to most of the questions on this topic.
