Once upon a time… in Pixiko: How we received the first 1,000 payments pixiko.com

We started different projects inside Zexler. Anyway, all of them were made for profit. A matter of monetization was delayed and it caused fading and giving up.

App store or web? Why not both!? dev.to

Most app development technologies force teams to make hard decisions about where they will distribute their apps, usually either app stores as a native app or the web as a Progressive Web App.

Capacitor, a universal app runtime, avoids these tradeoffs by targeting one universal runtime (the web), and giving you maximum optionality for where you distribute the app that you build. You can deploy your app with one codebase anywhere your users are, even if that happens to change! That might mean the app stores today, but it could mean the web and desktop tomorrow.
