HTML5, CSS3 are the best languages used for Mobile UI, IoT Application Development

The Internet of Things is made up of different components to make things work seamlessly for its users. Software, hardware, and firmware solutions are the things that are making the Internet of Things work seamlessly together.

This is a follow-up blog to “Why JavaScript is the Top Programming Languages for Building IoT Applications”. In our last blog we talked about JavaScript and how it is a great programming language for developing web based IoT applications, now this blog addresses how HTML5 and CSS3 with JavaScript are used for mobile user interface development to work seamlessly with web applications.

Vensi has been working with numerous Industrial IoT applications to work on multiple platforms like iOS, Android, and Windows apps, we are seeing with many others that JavaScript, HTML5 & CSS3 are great combinations of programming languages that are building Mobile, UI, Web and IoT applications seamlessly and providing a lower development cost to our clients.

HTML5, CSS3 are the best languages used for Mobile UI, IoT Application Development

Wikipedia defines CSS as Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a style sheet language used for describing the presentation of a document written in a markup language. Although most often used to set the visual style of web pages and user interfaces written in HTML and XHTML, the language can be applied to any XML document, including plain XML, SVG, and XUL, and is applicable to rendering in speech, or on other media. Along with HTML and JavaScript, CSS is a cornerstone technology used by most websites to create visually engaging web pages, user interfaces for web applications, and user interfaces for many mobile applications.

Benefits of CSS3:

  1. Compatible With Older Versions
  2. Simple and Independent
  3. View and Change Friendly
  4. Speedy Development
  5. Platform Independent and Cross Browser Compatible
  6. Attractive Backgrounds
  7. Borders and Texts
  8. Images and Animations
  9. Testing the Features

HTML5 is a markup language used for structuring and presenting content on the World Wide Web. It is the fifth and current version of the HTML standard, HTML5 is used by web developers to create web content and cross-platform applications.

Benefits of Html5:

  1. Semantics: allowing you to describe more precisely what your content is.
  2. Connectivity: allowing you to communicate with the server in new and innovative ways.
  3. Offline and storage: allowing web pages to store data on the client-side locally and operate offline more efficiently.
  4. Multimedia: making video and audio first-class citizens in the Open Web.
  5. 2D/3D graphics and effects: allowing a much more diverse range of presentation options.
  6. Performance and integration: providing greater speed optimization and better usage of computer hardware.
  7. Device access: allowing for the usage of various input and output devices.
  8. Styling: letting authors write more sophisticated themes.

The combination of JavaScript, HTML5, and CSS3 are helping to create and bring UI and IoT applications to the market faster, by developing on one platform to be used across multiple operating systems, which reduces not only development cost, saves time and works seamlessly on multiple platforms.

We hope that this article can help you understand the current situation and the possibilities of PHP in your web applications. PHP is one of the object-oriented programming language used in the dynamic web application development. The modern frameworks such as Zend, Symfony, Laravel or Magento and CMS are based on this language.

New PHP Version: As other languages, PHP also released new versions with more updates, security, features and increased capabilities. The recent version of PHP 7.0.9 has more tools and improved performance compared to the previous version of PHP 5.6.24. However, many people are still quite doubtful when it comes to migrating to version 7 of PHP because of the fear of bugs and the loss of stability. But, PHP 7 has proved to be the best performer and is being used in a number of new projects.

Listing The Best PHP Frameworks For Web Application Development:

Developers frequently use ready-made elements of the application while developing projects. A tool that helps in preparation of an application is a framework. The framework includes predefined classes that are making the developer’s work much easier and faster. Framework usually contains elements such as managing events, database, cache engines, logs, user authentications.

Symfony is the oldest framework as it was released in 2005. These framework modules are the basis for many other platforms such as Laravel or Drupal. It has a large number of ready-made modules which provides additional functionalities in a web application.

Laravel is The PHP Framework for Web Artisans. It is hard to compare with Symfony and decide which is better when it comes to efficiency and possibilities both platforms are similar to each other. Laravel uses many modules of its older brother Symfony, so some elements may look familiar. A big advantage of Laravel is the web development process seems to be easier and faster.

Phalcon was created as a response to the growing demand and performance of web applications. The idea of creating this framework to be the fastest PHP framework and it is also  ideal to work on simpler platforms or services that require higher performance. The main reason for such a great performance of this tool is that it’s created as an extension of the language and certain operations are performed much faster, which can result in its increased productivity.
