    Hello CB users,

    Lately I thought about developing apps for BB (os 10-7-PB) and I want to start developing it.
    What are the most commonly used programming languages for developing apps.

    At the moment I am a Web Developer so I am familiar to program also I am working at a software company.

    I know:
    PHP/ html / css (even html and css aren't languages) /basics of Java / Flash / some jQuery.

    I saw WebWorks and I thought that webworks is only used to make small apps using html and jquery (mostly) correct me if i'm wrong.

    Can some of you reply to this thread so I can take a look at the advantages of the frameworks u use so I can make a decision what to use.
    As there are a lot of different systems what people use.

    Thanks in advance.

    Webworks is the easiest language for you. BB10 has special API's designed for WebWorks.

    Please google for BBUI.js for a quick start tutorial

    First of all thanks Jeroen for the information.

    I googled BBUI.JS and everybody was talking about the bb10.

    Is BBUI.js also compatible with Blackberry OS 7 / OS 6 ?

    BBUI.js is also compatible with OS 6&7 , but only for the button/textfield styling.

    The whole app styling is available for the Playbook OS & BB10.

    If you want to know more about BB10 development, please ask a mod to move this topic to the BB10 App Development (sub)forum, or re-open a topic there !

    I highly recommend that you only develop apps for BB10/Playbook only.

    Be happy to move the thread IF you want! I agree with the others Webworks sounds like your best bet and BB10 development is also the way to go.

    Not an expert, but Ruby, Python and JavaScript might be an idea.

    If you are familiar with HTML, you should follow the Webworks route.
    Good luck !

    Might as well toss in my two cents. Steer clear of jquery & jquery mobile. It will kill performance and saves you very little (if any) development time.

    Edit: Not the most used obviously, but damn pretty.

    Enyo is a poor choice for BB10. Use the provided UI framework so that your app doesn't look like a crappy port.
