A cloud computing platform - Google App Engine also acts as platform-as-a-service to develop and host web applications in Google-managed data centers. Therefore, whether you need to host a static website or build a multi-tiered web application from scratch, you can easily do it using Google’s Infrastructure – Google App Engine. How? Let me brief you step-by-step. Create a Google Cloud Platform Project You need to start a new project on Google Cloud Platform to use Google’s tools for your own app or website. However, it requires you to have a Google account. Now, follow the instructions given below: 1. Go to the Google Cloud Platform Console --> App engine Dashboard and press the button, ‘Create.’ 2. If no projects are created yet by your end, you will need to agree to the Terms of Service, select whether you wish to receive email updates or not, and then you would be able to continue with creating projects. 3. Now, enter the name of your project, edit its project ID, and take a note of it. 4. Finally, click on the ‘Create’ button to create your project. Create an Application There is always an App Engine application in each cloud platform project. Now, it is your turn to create an app for the project created. 1.

Your website content will be available in the website folder, whereas app.yml will be called as your application configuration file. · The website content should lay within the website folder, and its landing page should have index.html extension, but it can also take whatever form you like. · The app.yaml configuration file tells the App Engine how the URLs should be mapped to their static files. You would not need to edit it. Publish your Application Now that you have got your project made along with getting sample app files, it is the time to publish your app. You have to follow the steps given below: 1. Open Google Cloud Shell. 2. Select the sample-app folder and drag & drop it into code editor’s left pane. 3. Run the below-given code in the command line for selecting your project: gcloud config set project gaesamplesite 4. Run the given command to go to the directory of your app: cd sample-app 5. Now, you are ready for app deployment and upload your app to App Engine: gcloud app deploy 6. Next, you would have to enter a number to choose the region to locate your application. 7. Confirm with entering ‘Y.’ 8. Now, open your browser and navigate it to your-project-id.Google Cloud Platform to check your website online.

Web-app is an access point to unleash the incredible power of the cyber world. It behaves like a magnet to pull the virtual audience on a massive scale, but at the same time, if the web-app is lousy and out of context the audience would not stick to it for long.   It becomes the developer’s job to ensure that each piece falls in the line and make it appealing. There are some outstanding open-source tools that assist developers in building web-app effortlessly.  Before we take an overview of the tools to build web-app, there is one thing I would like to make clear between web-apps and website.  Though both accessed through the internet, there is a thin line between web-apps and website. Unlike the website, web-app has an interactive program where visitors or users can take action. For example, Facebook or Gmail, where users comment on the Facebook post or use gmails to send mail to friends. It requires users to perform an action, while the websites only give information about the product or service- BBC news or Netflix. There is no user action involved.  So, if you are designing a web-app, many things need to consider frameworks, design & usability, database design, development approach, etc.  For developing a web application, there are three core areas.  Backend language ( Java, PHP, etc.) - It controls how your web app works  Web front end ( HTML, CSS, Javascript) - It controls how your front-end, the look and feel of the web-app  DevOps- Deployment, and hosting of web-app   Webapp development is carried out in 5 steps,   Step 1-Ideation stage ( source an idea)  Step 2- Design stage ( Plan your workflow and sketch your web-app)  Step 3- Development stage ( Architect your database, develop your frontend and build your backend)  Step 4- Testing stage ( Test your web-app functionality)  Step 5- Launch stage ( host your web application)   For large businesses, there would be no issues, but small scale business faces a challenge to build web-app as they sustain on a thin budget and a small team. For them knowing some opensource tools is a big deal.  The opensource tool implementation mostly depends on the business requirements rather than small or large business operations. If you know the requirements, it is easy to sort out the tools.  List of opensource tools for building small web applications  1) Free Prototyping tools  ( Image source:justuxdesign.com)  Before you execute a web application idea in a real environment, you would like to know how it will look or behave. For that, there are many prototyping designing tools you would like to add to your list.   Wireflow  Pencil  Mockflow  Framebox  2) IDE- Netbeans, Eclipse, Intellij  For writing code, testing, and debugging, the developer uses IDE. It brings more productivity when a programmer chooses IDE over a text editor. IDE that contains all tools, including the compiler and plug-ins are preferred more than others. The choice of IDE is also based on features such as an integrated development environment that allows to work with more than one programming language or supports mobile-based applications. Below is a list of some well-known IDEs used in the industry.  4) Front-end/ Backend Framework- AngularJS, NodeJS, Laravel  AngularJS is a JavaScript (front-end) framework, and it is mostly used to build single-page web apps. It makes your code easy to test, maintain, and reuse. It can be used to develop web, mobile web, native mobile, and native desktop. Angular converts your templates into code that's highly optimized for today's JavaScript virtual machines. Some other well-known Javascript open-source framework includes node.js, react.js, and ember.js. You can also consider Bootstrap, which is the world’s most popular front-end component library. It is an open-source toolkit for developing front-end UI components with HTML, JS, and CSS. For the back-end, you can use a framework like Laravel for PHP, Apache-struts for Java, and Ruby on Rail for Ruby.  5) CSS Preprocessor - LESS  LESS is an open-source CSS preprocessor used for styling the website. LESS enhances the capability of CSS with the use of variables, mixins, operators, and functions. It helps web developers/designers to reduce repetitive coding. The other popular CSS includes Sass and Stylus.  6) CMS- Drupal, Joomla, Wordpress  CMS enables you to create, edit, publish and manage website pages and blogs on a single interface. Below mentioned are some of the best free and open-source CMS software for your small web-application. These CMS also comes with many other features such as web-traffic analysis, SEO plugins, open API, W3C compliance, mobile support, and so on.  7) DBMS- SQL, MySQL, PostgreSQL  SQL, MySQL, and PostgreSQL are some of the popular free and opensource database management software. It handles your mission-critical data succinctly. SQL or MySQL is sufficient for your small web app; however, there are few more alternatives if you are keen about performance, speed, and scalability.  8) XAMPP- Local server for testing  XAMPP stands for cross-platform (X), Apache (A), MariaDB (M), PHP (P), and Perl (P). It is an open-source web server with all the tools and language support built-in to it. It is an all-in-one package, available for Windows, Linux and MAC systems. With XAMPP, you can build a test environment to test the web-application. The local server is cost-effective for small and medium-sized companies. Xampp is easy to install and use.  9) Free web hosting  There are many free web hosting sites, but it is NOT recommended. Their services are totally unreliable, and free hosts can remove the site from the server anytime. Also, there will be no customer support to answer your query. A premium host service or cloud hosting services may be expensive, but in the long run, it is worth it.  In case if you are interested in a mobile application that works on multiple platforms, here are some more free and opensource tools that could assist you in app development.  Other topics that might interest you,  The Best 8 Free and Open Source Bug Tracking Software Solutions  Top 7 Free and Open Source Marketing Automation Software

Before we take an overview of the tools to build web-app, there is one thing I would like to make clear between web-apps and website.

So, if you are designing a web-app, many things need to consider frameworks, design & usability, database design, development approach, etc. 

For developing a web application, there are three core areas. 

  • Backend language ( Java, PHP, etc.) - It controls how your web app works 
  • Web front end ( HTML, CSS, Javascript) - It controls how your front-end, the look and feel of the web-app 
  • DevOps- Deployment, and hosting of web-app  

Webapp development is carried out in 5 steps,  

  • Step 1-Ideation stage ( source an idea) 
  • Step 2- Design stage ( Plan your workflow and sketch your web-app) 
  • Step 3- Development stage ( Architect your database, develop your frontend and build your backend) 
  • Step 4- Testing stage ( Test your web-app functionality) 
  • Step 5- Launch stage ( host your web application)  

For large businesses, there would be no issues, but small scale business faces a challenge to build web-app as they sustain on a thin budget and a small team. For them knowing some opensource tools is a big deal. 

The opensource tool implementation mostly depends on the business requirements rather than small or large business operations. If you know the requirements, it is easy to sort out the tools.

This is a tricky question and requires a well-thought-out and comprehensive answer. The first thing you need to understand is that: mobile applications aren’t really making your business easier. Instead, they are making your business user-friendly, scalable, and profitable.  Okay, let’s differentiate two business approaches in terms of mobile application:   Companion application - In this case, the mobile app helps you to get near the central business stream. For instance, in a retail branch, a mobile app can help to ease the user interaction process. These types of apps support your main business activities and increase your client base and retention.  Standalone application - these are entirely developed to evolve as business units. They definitely had an operational background but weren’t intended to replicate the already working system. Typical examples of such apps will be Uber, Instagram, TikTok, etc.   Today, people are using their phones more than ever. Thus, by taking advantage of mobile applications, your business stands to benefit from the following:   Increased user retention - It’s a fact that nowadays people spend more time on their phones more than on their computers. It’s also for a fact that today people prefer to work with businesses that have optimized apps to visiting websites. This is because apps are more accessible and interactive than a traditional site. With mobile applications, you are connected to your customers 24/7. You can quickly notify your user that there is a new item available in the store, or let them know of new discount programs. As a result, it becomes easier to introduce interactive programs that keep your customers engaged with your business. A good typical example is Star Buck’s Star Point System, which rewards customers for purchasing items through the app. Because everyone wants to get rewards, customers will choose to skip a side street coffee shop and go to Starbucks, where they are getting more than just coffee.  Agile app functionality - If your business runs in a multinational context, sometimes you need to adjust your app accordingly. You will find that this is easy to achieve this using a mobile app rather than a traditional website. Mobile apps will forever remain more agile. Here we are talking not only about localization stuff but also about rolling out different features for different markets.  Obtain a vast dataset for analysis - Talk about customer behavior analysis; mobile apps are your best shot. Leveraging mobile apps, you will be able to track user events and behavior, easily implement techniques like A/B testing and partial roll-up of the app. Furthermore, it’s much easier to gather a big amount of data and analyze it using a mobile app. This data can help you to optimize literally everything—from app business flows to content fulfillment.  Gain profit from built-in sensors - Every modern device has a bunch of sensors, which you can leverage for your own business needs. For instance, today’s most mobile apps get access to the user’s location. Therefore you can send the user a notification that there is a store or restaurant nearby where they can spend their time or get a discount. The app can now easily guide your user to the needed point. Tasks that could be achieved with sensors and other hardware can all now be achieved with a simple tap on a smartphone.   The list of benefits from using mobile apps goes on and on. It’s important that you carefully evaluate your mobile strategy in order to create a flawless user experience. A bad mobile app, UI/UX is just as bad as a traditional slow-loading website. I would say you need to go incrementally. Every case is independent and should be adequately analyzed. The best way is to have a few sessions with a Business Analyst and System Architect and from their insights, compile a specification document or PRD.  To sum up - there is no generic pattern, but mobile will bring great benefits to your product.

Okay, let’s differentiate two business approaches in terms of mobile application:  

  • Companion application - In this case, the mobile app helps you to get near the central business stream. For instance, in a retail branch, a mobile app can help to ease the user interaction process. These types of apps support your main business activities and increase your client base and retention. 
  • Standalone application - these are entirely developed to evolve as business units. They definitely had an operational background but weren’t intended to replicate the already working system. Typical examples of such apps will be Uber, Instagram, TikTok, etc.  

Today, people are using their phones more than ever. Thus, by taking advantage of mobile applications, your business stands to benefit from the following:  

  • Increased user retention - It’s a fact that nowadays people spend more time on their phones more than on their computers. It’s also for a fact that today people prefer to work with businesses that have optimized apps to visiting websites. This is because apps are more accessible and interactive than a traditional site. With mobile applications, you are connected to your customers 24/7. You can quickly notify your user that there is a new item available in the store, or let them know of new discount programs. As a result, it becomes easier to introduce interactive programs that keep your customers engaged with your business. A good typical example is Star Buck’s Star Point System, which rewards customers for purchasing items through the app. Because everyone wants to get rewards, customers will choose to skip a side street coffee shop and go to Starbucks, where they are getting more than just coffee. 
  • Agile app functionality - If your business runs in a multinational context, sometimes you need to adjust your app accordingly. You will find that this is easy to achieve this using a mobile app rather than a traditional website. Mobile apps will forever remain more agile. Here we are talking not only about localization stuff but also about rolling out different features for different markets. 
  • Obtain a vast dataset for analysis - Talk about customer behavior analysis; mobile apps are your best shot. Leveraging mobile apps, you will be able to track user events and behavior, easily implement techniques like A/B testing and partial roll-up of the app. Furthermore, it’s much easier to gather a big amount of data and analyze it using a mobile app. This data can help you to optimize literally everything—from app business flows to content fulfillment. 
  • Gain profit from built-in sensors - Every modern device has a bunch of sensors, which you can leverage for your own business needs. For instance, today’s most mobile apps get access to the user’s location. Therefore you can send the user a notification that there is a store or restaurant nearby where they can spend their time or get a discount. The app can now easily guide your user to the needed point. Tasks that could be achieved with sensors and other hardware can all now be achieved with a simple tap on a smartphone.  

The list of benefits from using mobile apps goes on and on. It’s important that you carefully evaluate your mobile strategy in order to create a flawless user experience. A bad mobile app, UI/UX is just as bad as a traditional slow-loading website. I would say you need to go incrementally. Every case is independent and should be adequately analyzed. The best way is to have a few sessions with a Business Analyst and System Architect and from their insights, compile a specification document or PRD. 

To sum up - there is no generic pattern, but mobile will bring great benefits to your product.
