I appreciate Kirupa’s lengthy answer to my question here
… you should build both a PWA and a React Native solution and architect your app in a way to re-use as much logic between the PWA, React Native-Android, and React Native-iOS projects as possible. The PWA gets you the widest reach where any device with a browser can view your app. The React Native app gets you richness/depth where you get to take advantage of a device’s native UI controls for maximum performance and familiarity for users.
Having read this article a few times, I’m curious to get some suggestions for how one might go about building a medical reference application which will be available across the widest possible spectrum of desktop and mobile devices. The project involves transforming a book to an application. The UI will offer a Table of Contents and also Google-like search capabilities which will return a list of articles with snippets.
The app will serve up a structured data repository of articles.
The data will be added by a back-end tech, so the app will not need a UI for front-end authoring.
The articles will be housed in a structured repo. Properties of each article will include title, author, last-update …, all of which will be styled.
It will be subscription based with a few free pages. Subscription types include:
- Integrated into Electronic Medical Records (EMR), so we’ll need a secure, invisible method to open the app in a browser from within an EMR application.
TIA for any advice
