Hendrik Putzek (@hputzek (opens new window)) talked about webpack: "For many people webpack is some kind of black magic. At least for me this was long the case.

# September 26 2019: Mobile Vue.js – From PWA to Native

Building applications for mobile devices has its additional challenges: The network connection can be flaky and slow, so the application should still work when the device is offline. Users expect application icons on their home screens to start them. Depending on your use cases you want to access sensors that are not available in the browser.

This Meetup Martin Sotirov (opens new window) showed how to use Vue on mobile devices. We started with a PWA, went through a hybrid solution using Ionic Capacitor and then finally arrived at a NativeScript app which renders native iOS and Android views. About 40 Vue-enthusiasts met for this talk, network, food and drinks. A big THANK-YOU to AOE for sponsoring this event!

You find the slides of Martin's talk on Slideshare (opens new window) and a recording on YouTube (opens new window) (thank you to our friends at frontend rheinmain (opens new window) for the recording).
