Developer App, Top Tabris.js Feature #7

To celebrate the release of Tabris.js 1.0, I’m counting down the Top 10 Tabris.js features that I’m most excited about. Tabris.js is a mobile framework which enables developers to write cross-platform, native, mobile applications entirely in Javascript; and unlike most mobile app development, Tabris.js is extremely easy to get started with. In fact, with our Mobile Developer App, you can write your first mobile application in less than 10 minutes without the need to install custom tools or SDKs.

Number 7 on my list is the Tabris.js Developer App.

Frameworks should make the easy things easy, and the hard things possible. If your framework doesn’t do this, then nobody is going to use it. With Tabris.js, we believe we delivered on this promise, and in particular, we’ve made the easy things, dead simple!

With Tabris.js, you can build, deploy and execute an iOS and Android app in less time than it would take to download and install the traditional developer tools for each platform. The reason for this is because of the Tabris.js Developer App. The Tabris.js Developer App enables to you write your app using our on-line scratch pad, and deploy it directly to your device.

The Tabris.js Developer App is available in the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store, and the scratch pad is at

In addition to the ability to directly deploy your Tabris.js application from the scratch pad to your device, the Tabris.js Developer App also comes with several example applications you can experiment with. You can even browse the code right on your device.

To get started with Tabris.js, install the Developer App and sign-in with your GitHub credentials.

Special thanks for this great feature go out to Ivan Furnadjiev for building the App and to Holger Staudacher for integrating the scratch pad. The Tabris.js Developer App was written entirely in Javascript.
