How to make website and android App


#1

Hi, is it possible to make website in node js with template engine and restful api (toghather) for android


#2

Do you want Node actually running on your device? Will the restful API be something living on a remote server, or will it be internal to your app and your client code will send requests to the “server” side of your app and get data back?


#3

Native mobile App with node js backend server (and that backend server already serving a webiste using template engine.?


#4

Are you looking to wrap the website and have it appear inside your native app?


#5

yes but i am not talking about responsive design…

like some website also provide their api


#6

The simplest solution would be to use a webview in your native Android app that points to your website :slight_smile:

Hi, Funny you should mention that. I am looking at doing something similar. I am working on a nice simple little diet or nutrition app with a real friendly UI. And I could see it working well as an Android app. I was going to go and learn Android development as part of my CPD anyway but I have been a bit distracted for a moment with SVG and Canvas. Having looked at possible best route in to Android from small developer point of view might be have a look a Android studio by Google after all it is their baby and the Android Cook Book, O’Riley. Just a thought
