Disclaimer: Jive is not for every app but it drastically reduces complexity and accelerates development speed for certain types of apps. Judge for yourself.
Jive is an architecture for semi-native apps. Jive apps can run natively on mobile and desktop, and the web. Jive can be implemented in any programming language.
Let’s dig into the main assumptions:
- Web browsers, specifically the DOM and CSS provide UI primitives that are ubiquitous, battle-tested, flexible, endlessly stylable.
- Web apps are popular for their low friction and reach (just click a link) and cross-platform support.
