There’s a reason why many people choose PhoneGap/Cordova over native development:

They know how to write HTML, CSS and JavaScript and they can use that knowledge to build (native) mobile applications without having to learn another language and/or a different paradigm of development.

After taking a quick glance on the docs, it looks like one has to learn a whole lot of new (framework specific) stuff just to get started, which will repel a great number of (web) developers. Especially the ones who are willing to learn a language before learning a certain framework.

@Kildyt: I don’t want to discourage your efforts on creating this framework, but I really think you should focus on the advantages of over PhoneGap/Cordova instead of telling people that _other ways are less elegant_ to work with.

Hi @moll. I'm the author of the . mousewheel event in Firefox works differently than in other browsers (it's not standardized, unfortunately). We need to detect in somehow. This bug will be fixed in the next version. Cheers!

Thank you for all comments! This is what this project really needs now: a feedback.
We rewrote the Introduction article. Check here: .
We hope, it will help in better understanding!

I'd love to see a SWOT analysis that pits this against other native learn-once-deploy-anywhere solutions like Appcelerator, React Native, Xamarin etc, rather than against less relevant hybrid app packagers like Phonegap. On a side note, the site might benefit from performance tweaks for Android Chrome as it's a bit janky on an LG G3.

Hi Kildyt, I'm also a little lost. I think the site needs a bit of work to explain what this is. Some visuals, getting started, or blog post as nimgrg suggests. 

It also feels heavy on the "phonegap is crap" which isn't necessarily so. I'd sing about your best features, not Phonegap's worst.

Looks like a lot of work has gone into these docs, so it just needs some better communication.

A bit lost as to what it actually is. Probably a blog post on how it work's or what it is trying to achieve would help.

The feck is going on with scrolling there in the docs? Like dragging the page through mud it feels when using the scroll wheel here on Firefox.
