Progress Releases Updates to Telerik App Development Platform
|Stuart Parkerson in Programming Friday, January 16, 2015|
Progress has released the latest version of Telerik, its device and OS agnostic mobile development platform that combine UI tools and cloud services to build apps. This comes on the heels of the Progress’s announcement that it had finalized the purchase of Telerik AD in December 2014.
The platform provides the ability to code inside a web browser, a desktop client, Visual Studio, Sublime Text or by using the Telerik command-line interface (CLI) to integrate with existing build processes. Developers can create a mobile development environment on PC, Mac or Linux without downloads, installs or configuration, then integrate with existing tools and services.
The latest Telerik platform release includes the launch of the company’s Verified Plugins Marketplace which offers a gallery of Cordova/PhoneGap plugins. Included is the Telerik Cordova Push plugin which offers built-in backend services, push troubleshooting logs and a simplified push API.
Another new enhancement, Screen Builder (in beta), accelerates PhoneGap app scaffolding and enables developers to create 80 percent of the mobile app from pre-built and pre-wired screens without coding. There are also new quick start templates and quick start workflows to help get started building an app in as little as 15 minutes.
More information is available on the Telerik website.
