With our new ‘Build-to-Web’ option, Trigger.io’s Forge framework simplifies the development process for anyone who wants to target both web and mobile apps. Now, web developers don’t have to write multiple codebases using separate platforms and tools.

Trigger.io today announced it has expanded its recently launched cross-platform development framework with a new ‘Build-to-Web’ option. This option enables web developers to create and deploy web apps in addition to native mobile apps - all from a single HTML5 codebase. With Trigger.io’s Forge framework, developers only need to write their code once in HTML5 and use the service’s simple JavaScript API to access native device features and make cross-domain requests. They can then release native mobile apps in the App Store or Android Marketplace, and deploy their web app to Heroku, Trigger.io’s first hosting partner.

“Companies are using the mobile channel to access new customers and increase engagement with existing ones. Web developers are quickly discovering how important it is to provide a cohesive native mobile and mobile web experience,” said Trigger.io co-founder and CEO Amir Nathoo. “With our new ‘Build-to-web’ option, Trigger.io’s Forge framework simplifies the development process for anyone who wants to target both web and mobile apps. Now, web developers don’t have to write multiple codebases using separate platforms and tools. Forge helps developers create a combined mobile and web strategy using just one framework and codebase.”

Trigger.io's framework, called Forge, stays out of the way while web developers create their applications in familiar web technologies - HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Developers can then use the tools at https://trigger.io/forge to build the app as native with offline access and native features, and as a web app. Using Forge, developers can take advantage of HTML5 power and ease, while hosting a full native feature set - including notifications, camera and file access, and full cross-domain access to enable secure transactions. Trigger.io's debug tool, called Catalyst, can then be used to provide a Webkit-style debugger for all platforms.

Trigger.io's framework suits web developers new to mobile app development and provides the fastest development process and native bridge available in the market. Web developers looking to crack into the revenue opportunities from mobile - including native and mobile web, can continue working with open web standards and familiar languages while using Trigger.io. Also, unlimited support on all subscription plans means that developers new to mobile can get the help they need to get great results.
