Android SDK vs HTML5: What are the differences?

What is Android SDK? An SDK that provides you the API libraries and developer tools necessary to build, test, and debug apps for Android. Android provides a rich application framework that allows you to build innovative apps and games for mobile devices in a Java language environment.

What is HTML5? 5th major revision of the core language of the World Wide Web. HTML5 is a core technology markup language of the Internet used for structuring and presenting content for the World Wide Web. As of October 2014 this is the final and complete fifth revision of the HTML standard of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). The previous version, HTML 4, was standardised in 1997.

Android SDK can be classified as a tool in the "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category, while HTML5 is grouped under "Languages".

"Android development", "Necessary for android" and "Android studio" are the key factors why developers consider Android SDK; whereas "New doctype", "Local storage" and "Canvas" are the primary reasons why HTML5 is favored.

reddit, Lyft, and StackShare are some of the popular companies that use HTML5, whereas Android SDK is used by Google, Instacart, and Slack. HTML5 has a broader approval, being mentioned in 3170 company stacks & 3491 developers stacks; compared to Android SDK, which is listed in 1084 company stacks and 907 developer stacks.

Spring BootSpring Boot

I've just finished my Masters degree and I am looking at routes into developing my Java knowledge.

The University I studied at requested that all practical Java assignments were done in Java Swing and as such I have a strong understanding in that area of development. Looking at job prospects, many employers are now looking for Java Spring or Android developers.

The plan is to move away from Java SE and skill up in Android development. I was planning on learning Spring Boot to gain exposure in web application development, however looking at StackShare, Django seems to be the more attractive choice for developers.

Does anyone have any advice on which routes/stacks would be the most advisable to adopt. If Spring is not receiving as much exposure or support as Django, is it worth adding to my stack?

Spring is generally more an enterprise solution, while I see Django being more startup oriented. Django is lightweight and fast (development time, not runtime!). Spring seems to have more focus on microservice architecture than django, if that matters to you at all. Starting your project in Django, it automatically creates a backend 'admin panel' for you to use and customize. You will not find this in the more serious Spring Boot.

Though Java is a strong language and basically the first language to be used in Mobile Development (Android), the framework Spring Boot is not as modern as the Django framework which is based on one of the most popular languages today - Python. Moreover the Python language is far more simpler in syntax and just as powerful as Java. However, Java has scaled up it's performance and the Spring Boot framework can support dynamic web development as well as android development. Whichever way you choose to go, there will be no regrets - trust me.

Decisions about Android SDK and HTML5

We actually initially wrote a lot of networking code in Kotlin but the complexities involved prompted us to try and compile NodeJS for Android and port over all the networking logic to Node and communicate with node over the Java Native Interface.

This turned out to be a great decision considering our battery usage fell by 40% and rate of development increased by a factor of 2.

7 Awesome CSS3 Techniques You Should give a Try

  1. Vertically Align With Flexbox Earlier developers used to face a lot of difficulties aligning a text or any other element vertically center. But now, after the introduction of the new CSS3 specification Flexbox, things have become much easier.

  2. Responsive CSS Grid Do not make your grid an exception make it responsive too, like everything else in your design.

There are so many ways through which you can make your grid responsive with CSS Grid. And the best part of using it is, you will be able to create a more flexible grid that gives you the desired look, no matter what the device size is.

  1. Text Animations You might have created background animations with CSS, but now it also influences how users interact and engage with the text elements of a website. From hover adjustments to making words float in the air, CCS3 has made it all possible.

  2. Columns layout Usually, column-based layouts are created by using Javascript, which is quite complicated and time-consuming. But CSS has brought a way around to ease up the task of developers and web designers.

  3. Screen Orientation Many people think that screen orientation and device orientation both work for the same purpose. But that’s not the case. The orientation of the screen is a bit different from the device.

Even if a device is not capable of detecting its orientation, a screen always can. And if the device is capable also, then it’s good to have control over the screen orientation so that you can maintain or change the interface of your website.

  1. Comma Separated Lists There is no doubt that Bullet lists are very commonly used in writing to convey any information more precisely and clearly. But one thing that most people struggle with is to add commas on every point of the lists.

  2. Animated Checkbox Well, most of the people are very much aware of the CSS background and text animations. But, not many know about checkbox animations.

Yes, apart from background and texts, you can also make your checkbox section look visually appealing. Isn’t it great?

This post is a bit of an obvious one, as we have a web application, we obviously need to have HTML and CSS in our stack. Though specifically though, we can talk a bit about backward compatibility and the specific approaches we want to enforce in our codebase.

HTML : Not much explanation here, you have to interact with HTML for a web app. We will stick to the latest standard: HTML 5.

CSS: Again if we want to style any of our components within he web, we have to use to style it. Though we will be taking advantage of JSS in our code base and try to minimize the # of CSS stylesheets and include all our styling within the components themselves. This leaves the codebase much cleaner and makes it easier to find styles!

Babel: We understand that not every browser is able to support the cool new features of the latest node/JS features (such as redue, filter, etc) seen in ES6. We will make sure to have the correct Babel configuration o make our application backward compatible.

Material UI (MUI): We need to make our user interface as intuitive and pretty as possible within his MVP, and the UI framework used by Google will provide us with exactly that. MUI provides pretty much all the UI components you would need and allows heavy customization as well. Its vast # of demos will allow us to add components quickly and not get too hung up on making UI components.

We will be using the latest version of create-react-app which bundles most of the above along many necessary frameworks (e.g. Jest for testing) to get started quickly.

Websocket is trending this year, but there is another technology similar with Websocket (WS) is Server Sent Event (SSE). Those method have used similar Content-type, SSE is used to text/event-stream and WS is used to binary or text/octet-stream.

The different both of those method is sent. WS is an undirectional sending data both of client and server and SSE is whatever data on server will be push to client.
