Am trying to gather information surrounding wrappers for web apps built on bubble.
We have built a comprehensive platform and have used several wrappers from copilot, bdk, webviewgold, and gonative all have their great aspects and limitations.
This thread is to give the community an area to add their experience (good and bad) from using any web wrappers to get their bubble build published on the app stores!
We’ll start it off with an very brief introduction for each based on our experience, including comments on the following simple factors:
COST: High ($$$), Moderate ($$), Low ($)
-Ranging from $150USD ($) to above $1,000USD ($$$)
CUSTOMISATION: High (CCC), Moderate (CC), Low ©
-ability to choose launch images, loading spinner, orientation, and status bar colours etc.
INTEGRATION: High (III), Moderate (II), Low (I)
-push notification (onesignal), facebook, google, and deep linking etc.
SUPPORT: High (SSS), Moderate (SS), Low (S)
-ranging from very quick personal response within 24hours (SSS), through to response to queries within a week or so (S).
[ $$ CC II SSS ]
-very simple to build, details are entered into in input fields through their website and into bubble plugin. control of customisations very high and third party integration for push notifications is simple and works effectively.
[ $ CC II SS ]
-unfortunately, not taking on any more deployments. *notes on previous build: very simple to build, is customisable via input fields and allows for high level of control of loaders, colours, and third party integrations (ie. onesignal)
[ $ CCC I S ]
-setup is more difficult, as source code needs to be modified. instructions and code is sometimes out of date, however if followed to the infinite decimal, can produce perfectly good build. customisations at time will need to be manually updated based on changes from app stores.
[ $$$ CCC III SSS ]
-setup relatively easy, very comprehensive fields to be filled out with your info. customisations as expected for the cost and very quick turn around time.
All of these options have been successfully deployed to both stores at some point!
We understand there are varied opinions and many different options out there for web wrappers. if you have any alternatives to the ones listed, or any feedback or input regarding any of these wrappers please feel free to inform the community here!
Keep in mind this thread is to discuss whats out there and the benefit they have for each developer, please keep troubleshooting to their respective threads.
We will add more info as it is requested, and when we get a spare moment! looking forward to hearing everyones opinions!
