C++ vs HTML5: What are the differences?

C++: Has imperative, object-oriented and generic programming features, while also providing the facilities for low level memory manipulation. C++ compiles directly to a machine's native code, allowing it to be one of the fastest languages in the world, if optimized; 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.

C++ and HTML5 can be categorized as "Languages" tools.

"Performance", "Control over memory allocation" and "Cross-platform" are the key factors why developers consider C++; whereas "New doctype", "Local storage" and "Canvas" are the primary reasons why HTML5 is favored.

9GAG, Asana, and Disqus are some of the popular companies that use HTML5, whereas C++ is used by Lyft, OkCupid, and Twitch. HTML5 has a broader approval, being mentioned in 3166 company stacks & 3482 developers stacks; compared to C++, which is listed in 199 company stacks and 371 developer stacks.

    Read more on how to extend the OutSystems UI with HTML here.

    At the user interface level, the platform provides a rich visual editor that allows web interfaces to be composed by dragging and dropping. Instead of purely writing HTML, developers use visual widgets. These widgets are wrapped and are easy to reuse just by dragging and dropping without everyone needing to understand how they are built.

    The most latency sensitive parts are written in C++. Due to our interconnected services architecture, we use either Python or C++ for each service, with the performance critical parts being C++14.

    I mostly just use it when I need to customize something from Bootstrap or *SemanticUI *and when I need to tweak tiny details or get around the limitations of Javascript.

    We exclusively use HTML5 instead of XHTML (or even older) HTML-versions. We like the new unity that HTML5 offers and try to keep our code according to the conventions.
