Thinking about using B2X

Hi

I currently use Xojo for development projects and am looking at B4X for a project where I need to create a frontend for idevices, Android devices, Windows, Mac desktop and web.

I have already developed the REST server API using Xojo but really want to have one codebase for the frontend parts.

Is this possible with B4X or will I have to have different projects for different platforms / devices?

Also does anyone have knowledge of moving from Xojo to B4X ie is it an easy switch? :)

Thanks

Nathan

The server code will be different than the mobile apps code as there are many conceptual differences.

You can share most of the code between the clients (B4J UI, B4A and B4I). Especially once you learn to use the XUI library.
You will have multiple projects but they will all share the same modules.

Hi Erel

Thanks, yes I plan to leave the server code in Xojo as that works well for me.

The issue is that in Xojo you can't (easily) have one codebase with all the communications and shared parts that get called from different frontends which is what I am looking for.

Is their an example of the XUI Library as this is the first I have heard about it.

Thanks
