An HTML DSL for Elixir and PhoenixProject mention: “Writing an app is like coding for LaserDisc” | news.ycombinator.com | 2022-09-05
One possible solution to this problem is the Free, Open Source Software community continuing to work toward more sophisticated tech that can bridge the gap between popular server-side languages for Web Dev and native platforms. PhoneGap was a failure because it was JS running on the phone, rather than compiling to something faster and with a more “native feel”. React Native is, IMHO, not that much better (and the React ecosystem has ridiculous fragmentation and churn). Flutter seems cool, but Dart is not a popular server-side language (and from what I heard anecdotally, Flutter also has API complexity and churn).
Personally, I think Elixir is a natural choice for this kind of task (disclosure: I am incredibly biased in my love for Elixir).
Macro-based DSLs are not beloved by all, but they can take you pretty far with minimal overhead, since you can theoretically target multiple platforms without even having to ship a custom runtime to the phone. Aside from the language itself, there is a great community, less fragmentation and churn, and a tendency to build thoughtful, robust libraries and frameworks with good docs.
For inspiration, take a look at Mitch Hanberg’s Temple project which compiles valid Elixir code to something that eventually gets turned into HTML.
DockYard is also doing really cool, bleeding edge stuff with LiveView Native, even if it’s a bit early to predict how viable it will be for large, complex apps.
