All of those features are listed under SnapDevelop not PowerBuilder. Our plan for UI is to support developing HTML and ReactNative. For the server-side, it is basically unchanged from today except in addition to C# we are supporting Node.JS. But one advantage of using C# over Node.JS is that you can use non-visual DataWindow features. Just to clarify, this is all new development and no conversion of any existing PB code.
Hi Armeen, regarding UI, "support developing HTML and ReactNative" is still generic.
What kind of support is Appeon thinking about?
First, "support" may relate to an IDE.
VS Code already provides a great dev environment for React Native. What Snap (PB?) would offer more?
Second, UI coding.
During Elevate 2020 I showed how relatively quick is to build attractive web/mobile UI calling Snap REST API. There exist many mobile app frameworks out there and I just picked up one.
To PB developers, the simpler the better. PowerServer Mobile (and also PocketBuilder) gave us a limited yet unique way to mobify PB code. It will be interesting to understand what learning curve is expected from the "new development and no conversion of any existing PB code", and what the result will be: generation of some UI components (e.g. html DW), to embed in a larger project, or a fully-fledged dev/deployment env?
Hi Marco, Our goal for 2022 version of SnapDevelop would be to be on par with VS Code for UI coding. But on C# side/REST API side I think SnapDevelop offers more than VS Code. And it might be nice to use a single tool to do everything than jump back n' forth.
