Yet Another DSL for Cross-Platforms Mobile Development


With the growing success of mobility, mobile platforms (iOS, Android, WindowsPhone, etc.) multiply, each requiring specific development skills. Given this situation, it becomes very difficult for software developers to duplicate their apps accordingly. Meanwhile, web-based applications have evolved to be "mobile-friendly" but it appears that this is not a silver bullet : the user experience and the overall quality is still better with native applications. Of course, cross-platform mobile development tools have emerged in recent years. This paper provides a survey of these tools and points out that a full-fledged language for mobile development is highly desirable. Consequently, we present a preliminary work on Xmob , a technology-neutral DSL intended to be cross-compiled to produce native code for a variety of platforms.
