Grow with Webix: Real Showcase from Michael Basin

Hey guys!

New week, new showcase from our customers. Today we are presenting a short, but colourful article from Michael Basin. The project, which was made on Webix, is called Blitz-Budget. So let’s start.

“I use Webix Pivot for mobile applications for financial accounting as a tool for generating reports. And I do it in an unusual way.

A smartphone is used as a web-server and Pivot is run on a PC as a client. Thus, users get a possibility to make reports on a desktop directly using data from the smartphone.

It is hard to imagine a modern life without planning both business and personal events. We can use desktop calendars, datebooks, web apps for such purposes. But the most convenient calendar is the one that is always at hand – a mobile calendar. Webix Scheduler is a JavaScript and HTML5 event calendar adapted for mobile devices.

This web calendar allows creating easily editable single- and multi-day events. To edit an event, you simply need to click on it and make the necessary changes in the “Edit” form. To change the start and end dates you should click on the corresponding form field and then select the date in the calendar.

Webix Scheduler has 3 basic views: Day, Week and Month. It is possible to navigate between them by clicking on calendar tabs.

Creating a Mobile App with PhoneGap and Webix

With the help of Webix you can create a web app which will work equally well on both desktop and mobile devices. However, it still remains only an HTML page. In order to create a native app, you need some other tools. One of such tools is PhoneGap.

PhoneGap is a free and open source framework that allows you to create mobile apps using standardized web APIs for the platforms you care about. Phohegap works on base of HTML5 and can be used to create native app for all major mobile systems – iOS, Android, Windows Phone and others.
