Crosswalk vs J2ObjC: What are the differences?

What is Crosswalk? Replace Android’s default WebView with Crosswalk, a predictable web runtime for developing powerful Android and Cordova apps. Crosswalk is a web runtime for ambitious HTML5 applications. All the features of a modern browser, deep device integration and an API for adding native extensions.

What is J2ObjC? Java to iOS Objective-C translation tool and runtime used by Google Inbox to share 70% of its code across Android, iOS, and Web. J2ObjC is an open-source command-line tool from Google that translates Java code to Objective-C for the iOS (iPhone/iPad) platform. This tool enables Java code to be part of an iOS application's build, as no editing of the generated files is necessary. The goal is to write an app's non-UI code (such as data access, or application logic) in Java, which is then shared by web apps (using GWT), Android apps, and iOS apps.

Crosswalk and J2ObjC can be primarily classified as "Cross-Platform Mobile Development" tools.

Crosswalk and J2ObjC are both open source tools. J2ObjC with 5.47K GitHub stars and 771 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Crosswalk with 2.17K GitHub stars and 569 GitHub forks.

      React Native
      React Native enables you to build world-class application experiences on native platforms using a consistent developer experience based on JavaScript and React. The focus of React Native is on developer efficiency across all the platforms you care about - learn once, write anywhere. Facebook uses React Native in multiple production apps and will continue investing in React Native.
      Ionic
      Free and open source, Ionic offers a library of mobile and desktop-optimized HTML, CSS and JS components for building highly interactive apps. Use with Angular, React, Vue, or plain JavaScript.
      Xamarin
      Xamarin’s Mono-based products enable .NET developers to use their existing code, libraries and tools (including Visual Studio*), as well as skills in .NET and the C# programming language, to create mobile applications for the industry’s most widely-used mobile devices, including Android-based smartphones and tablets, iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
      Apache Cordova
      Apache Cordova is a set of device APIs that allow a mobile app developer to access native device function such as the camera or accelerometer from JavaScript. Combined with a UI framework such as jQuery Mobile or Dojo Mobile or Sencha Touch, this allows a smartphone app to be developed with just HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
      PhoneGap
      PhoneGap is a web platform that exposes native mobile device apis and data to JavaScript. PhoneGap is a distribution of Apache Cordova. PhoneGap allows you to use standard web technologies such as HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript for cross-platform development, avoiding each mobile platforms' native development language. Applications execute within wrappers targeted to each platform, and rely on standards-compliant API bindings to access each device's sensors, data, and network status.

      Review ofJ2ObjCJ2ObjC

      This is one of the most amazing open source projects out there. Tom and Kieth do an amazing job working with the developer community and quickly responding to questions and concerns. I was blown away by how solid the ported code was. What a life-saver and a ridiculously awesome tool.

      We use J2Objc and GWT to provide a shared library of cross-platform code that is used on all our client platforms (Android, iOS and the web) and even in the backend.
