What is Mobile First?

IBM MobileFirst Foundation, formerly known as IBM Worklight®, is a suite of software development products that allow developers to build and deliver mobile applications for the enterprise.

The MobileFirst Platform Foundation consists of:

MobileFirst Server – the middleware tier that provides a gateway between back-end systems and services and the mobile client applications.  

MobileFirst API - both client and server-side APIs for developing and managing your enterprise mobile applications.

MobileFirst Studio - an optional all-inclusive development environment for developing enterprise apps on the MobileFirst platform.  This is based on the Eclipse platform, and includes an integrated server, development environment, facilities to create and test all data adapters/services, a browser-based hybrid app simulator, and the ability to generate platform-specific applications for deployment. 

MobileFirst Console – the console provides a dashboard and management portal for everything happening within your MobileFirst applications.  

MobileFirst Application Center - a tool to make sharing mobile apps easier within an organization.  Basically, it’s an app store for your enterprise.

BM talks about the MobileFirst Platform in two ways, based in its capabilities and also by its components. The capability areas are: Continuously Improve, Secure, Contextualize and Personalize, and Enrich with Data.

Continuously Improve - allows IT to manage application refresh cycles and collect in-app usage analytics.
Secure - provides enterprise mobility management (EMM) capabilities. 
Contextualize and Personalize - allows developers to create mobile apps that are location- and context-aware.
Enrich with Data - allows IT to join its mobile apps to internal and external data sources by connecting directly with IBM's Cloudant database as a service (DBaaS).

Onsen UI features a large collection of ready to use components, responsive out of the box that allows you to build mobile, it allows you to write apps in HTML5 and JavaScript and push through Phonegap and Cordova for building the app.

This framework is very easy to use, flexibility and has semantic markup components and is free to use for commercial projects.

It is open source and designed to deliver native look and feel. Apps are made out of simple HTML tags, thus providing a gentle learning curve.

The core library is written in pure Javascript (on top of Web Components) and is framework agnostic, which means you can use it with your favorite framework and its tools. 

Onsen UI is tested with the following browsers and mobile OS.

  • Android 4.4.4+ (and Android 4.0+ with Crosswalk engine)

What is Ionic Framework ?

   Ionic is an HTML5 mobile app development framework targeted at building hybrid mobile apps. Hybrid apps are essentially small websites running in a browser shell in an app that have access to the native platform layer. Hybrid apps have many benefits over pure native apps, specifically in terms of platform support, speed of development, and access to 3rd party code.
 
Since Ionic is an HTML5 framework, it needs a native wrapper like Cordova or PhoneGap in order to run as a native app. We strongly recommend using Cordova proper for your apps, and the Ionic tools will use Cordova underneath.
 
Ionic is focused mainly on the look and feel, and UI interaction of your app. onic currently requires AngularJS in order to work at its full potential. While you can still use the CSS portion of the framework, you'll miss out on powerful UI interactions, gestures, animations, and other things.

What is Hybrid App?

Hybrid apps, like native apps, run on the device, and are written with web technologies (HTML5, CSS and JavaScript). Hybrid apps run inside a native container, and leverage the device's browser engine (but not the browser) to render the HTML and process the JavaScript locally.

Benefits

-Developer can use existing web skills
-One code base for multiple platforms
-Reduced development time and cost
-Easily design for various form factors (including tablets) using responsive web design
-Access to some device and operating system features
-Advanced offline capabilities
-Increased visibility because the app can be distributed natively (via app stores) and to mobile browsers (via search engines)

Top Frameworks for Hybrid App

1)IONIC
2)Mobile Angular UI
3)Intel XDK
4)Appcelerator Titanium
5)Sencha Touch
6)Kendo UI
7)PhoneGap

What is Axios?

Axios is a promise-based HTTP client that works both in the browser and in a node.js environment. It basically provides a single API for dealing with XMLHttpRequest s and node's http interface. Besides that, it wraps the requests using a polyfill for ES6 new's promise syntax

Node Command

npm install axios

Bower Command

bower install axios

Features

  • Make XMLHttpRequests from the browser
  • Make http requests from node.js
  • Supports the Promise API
  • Intercept request and response
  • Transform request and response data
  • Cancel requests
  • Automatic transforms for JSON data
  • Client-side support for protecting against XSRF

The user interface is split up into three sections:

  • GET Request
  • GET Request with Parameters
  • POST Request

With each of these three sections the user is able to try out a specific use case for Axios.

What is Pug?

The general rendering process of Pug is simple. pug.compile() will compile the Pug source code into a JavaScript function that takes a data object (called “ locals ”) as an argument. Call that resultant function with your data, and voilà!, it will return a string of HTML rendered with your data.
Pug is a high performance template engine heavily influenced by Haml and implemented with JavaScript for Node.js and browsers. For bug reports, feature requests and questions, open an issue. For discussion join the chat room.

Node Command

npm install pug

Pug also provides the pug.render() family of functions that combine compiling and rendering into one step. However, the template function will be re-compiled every time render is called, which might impact performance. Alternatively, you can use the cache option with render, which will automatically store the compiled function into an internal cache.

Example:

p #{name}'s Pug source code!

const pug = require('pug');

// Compile the source code
const compiledFunction = pug.compileFile('template.pug');

// Render a set of data
console.log(compiledFunction({
  name: 'Timothy'
}));
// "<p>Timothy's Pug source code!</p>"

// Render another set of data
console.log(compiledFunction({
  name: 'Forbes'
}));
// "<p>Forbes's Pug source code!</p>"
