FULL DISCUSSION
 

We are looking to release our open source iOS app soon, if anyone wants to jump in and iron out some usability issues:

thepracticaldev / DEV-ios

DEV Community iOS App

Build Status GitHub License Language

DEV iOS 💖

This is the repo for the dev.to iOS app. It is still a work in progress, but getting there!

Design ethos

We will grow to include more native code over time, but for now we are taking the approach of native shell/web views. This approach lost favor early in iOS days, but I believe it is a very valid approach these days. It is inspired by how Basecamp does things. Our tech stack is a bit different, but the ideas are the same.

By leveraging wkwebviews as much as possible, I think we can make this all pretty awesome and sync up with our web dev work pretty smoothly. And where it makes sense, we can re-implement certain things fully native, or build entirely native features. Life's a journey, not a destination.
