Application development has become a daunting task, with applications becoming more and more complex and more tech stacks emerging. But there are many tools available online that help us immensely in our application development. Here are a few tools I have used and would recommend to anyone working as a developer, as they have personally helped me with my work.
If you ask a full-stack developer whether front-end development is harder than back-end, most of them would say yes. Personally, I would too. The reason why front-end development is so hard compared to back-end development is that it involves a lot of complex UI components.
Last year, we provided a list of Kubernetes tools that proved so popular we have decided to curate another list of some useful additions for working with the platform—among which are many tools that we personally use here at Caylent. Check out the original tools list here in case you missed it.
According to a recent survey done by Stackrox, the dominance Kubernetes enjoys in the market continues to be reinforced, with 86% of respondents using it for container orchestration.
And as you can see below, more and more companies are jumping into containerization for their apps. If you’re among them, here are some tools to aid you going forward as Kubernetes continues its rapid growth.

As Gartner predicted a few years ago, the vast majority of companies across the niches today adopted mobile apps for their businesses, and apps are continuing to play a vital role in their mobile app strategy and success. But building a mobile app is no longer an easy business as the market has become tremendously competitive.
To beat the competition with a sharp and sophisticated mobile app, app development companies are increasingly banking on a rich set of tools and frameworks. Here we will showcase some of the most acclaimed frameworks and tools that mobile app developers can try in 2021.
While Swift is the popular programming language used by iOS developers worldwide, when the language is used in combination with Xcode, the development experience becomes even more delightful. When you decide to iPhone app developers in India for your iPhone app project, you can find dedicated Xcode processes.
Here we provide some of the key features and benefits of Xcode.
Swiftic is the leading iPhone app development program that comes with a very easy-to-navigate user interface. Coming with loads of features, it makes things exceptionally easier for app developers.
Some of the features offered by the Swiftific tool include the following.
AppCode is basically an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for building apps on iOS and Mac platforms. It offers several paradigms shifting approaches for iOS app development.
Some of the key features and benefits offered by AppCode for iOS development include the following,
Android Studio is an integrated development environment (IDE) and development software to build Android mobile apps. Developed by Google, it is widely used by Android developers for its editing capabilities.
Some of the key features of Android Studio include the following.
Native Android is another widely used Android app development platform used in many Android app projects. From Google, Instacart, Slack to many other leading apps relied on this platform.
Some of the key features of Native Android include the following.
Flutter, created by Google, comes as the most robust cross-platform development framework that ended the era of many concerns previously associated with cross-platform app development.
Some of the key features and benefits of Flutter include the following.
Created by Facebook, React Native stands as the most popular cross-platform development framework widely used across app projects of all niches and sizes. Still, now, it is the most loved framework with huge global popularity.
Some of the key features of React Native include the following.
Ionic is a leading cross-platform development framework that uses tried and tested web technologies to build robust apps. Created in 2013, the framework continued to remain a popular framework used across many app projects.
There must be several other great tools and frameworks that we could not discuss within this short length of the present post. We tried to showcase only the leading and most representative technologies used across app projects of all types and niches. Your choice of an ideal framework or tool should depend on your project requirements.

rameworks and libraries can be said as the fundamental building blocks when developers build software or applications. These tools help in opting out the repetitive tasks as well as reduce the amount of code that the developers need to write for a particular software.
Recently, the Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2020 surveyed nearly 65,000 developers, where they voted their go-to tools and libraries. Here, we list down the top 12 frameworks and libraries from the survey that are most used by developers around the globe in 2020.
(The libraries are listed according to their number of Stars in GitHub)

With more of us using smartphones, the popularity of mobile applications has exploded. In the digital era, the number of people looking for products and services online is growing rapidly. Smartphone owners look for mobile applications that give them quick access to companies’ products and services. As a result, mobile apps provide customers with a lot of benefits in just one device.
Likewise, companies use mobile apps to increase customer loyalty and improve their services. Mobile Developers are in high demand as companies use apps not only to create brand awareness but also to gather information. For that reason, mobile apps are used as tools to collect valuable data from customers to help companies improve their offer.
There are many types of mobile applications, each with its own advantages. For example, native apps perform better, while web apps don’t need to be customized for the platform or operating system (OS). Likewise, hybrid apps provide users with comfortable user experience. However, you may be wondering how long it takes to develop an app.
To give you an idea of how long the app development process takes, here’s a short guide.
_Average time spent: two to five weeks _
This is the initial stage and a crucial step in setting the project in the right direction. In this stage, you brainstorm ideas and select the best one. Apart from that, you’ll need to do some research to see if your idea is viable. Remember that coming up with an idea is easy; the hard part is to make it a reality.
All your ideas may seem viable, but you still have to run some tests to keep it as real as possible. For that reason, when Web Developers are building a web app, they analyze the available ideas to see which one is the best match for the targeted audience.
Targeting the right audience is crucial when you are developing an app. It saves time when shaping the app in the right direction as you have a clear set of objectives. Likewise, analyzing how the app affects the market is essential. During the research process, App Developers must gather information about potential competitors and threats. This helps the app owners develop strategies to tackle difficulties that come up after the launch.
The research process can take several weeks, but it determines how successful your app can be. For that reason, you must take your time to know all the weaknesses and strengths of the competitors, possible app strategies, and targeted audience.
The outcomes of this stage are app prototypes and the minimum feasible product.

APIs can be as simple as 1 endpoint for use by 100s of users or as complex as the AWS APIs with 1000s of endpoints and 100s of thousands of users. Building them can mean spending a couple of hours using a low-code platform or months of work using a multitude of tools. Hosting them can be as simple as using one platform that does everything we need or as complex as setting up and managing ingress control, security, caching, failover, metrics, scaling etc.
What they all have in common are three basic steps to go from nothing to a running API.
Each of these steps has its own set of tools. Here are some I’ve used and popular alternatives.
REST is the most popular API interface and has the best tooling. Our design output for REST services always includes an OpenAPI specification. The specification language can be tricky to get right in JSON (how many curly brackets?) or YAML (how many spaces?) so a good editor saves a lot of time.
Four popular ones are:
I’ve only used Swagger and Postman but both Insomnia and Stoplight look interesting. All of them offer additional functionality like documentation, testing and collaboration so are much more than just specification generators.
