I'm just wondering what frameworks people are using and for what platforms?

Re: SURVEY : What Javascript frameworks are you using?

I wrote one app using WerbWorks and Sencha Mobile Toolkit.

 

It is nice framework altought I hate HTML5/JS (I rather preffer Java or AIR).

 

The saddest part of Sencha is that it is completely touche-enabled (I had complaints because trackpad is useless - maybe my mistake?) and it offers own look-and-feel (users are confused). But the app runs on multiple platforms :Yes:

Sencha Touch and Phonegap, but have removed Phonegap for Blackberry because of the memory issues.

Re: SURVEY : What Javascript frameworks are you using?

To add to my previous reply, we are targeting BB 6 and 7. We are having some issues with animated seen transitions on BB 6.

We also use require.js with the order.js plugin for dynamically loading script. We are using the jQuery postmessage plugin for async messaging.

Hope this helps,

Sencha Touch for touch devices.

  • Ideal for rapid prototyping
  • Looks good out of the box
  • Be prepared to fix a lot of bugs to make it work properly and you'll need to add PlayBook detection yourself. 
  • You can build your own theme and make your apps look native
  • Animations are useless (an probably won't be fixed due to the small PlayBook user base), but I haven't found one framework that does it right
  • Google Maps is broken

JQuery and JQuery mobile

 

Reasons: Very well tested and documented framework. First results are created quite fast.
