Cobalt is a web and native framework to create mobile applications that can mix web technologies and native technologies.
It provides :
- a solid communication tool between web and native
- soon, some plugins, to bring your own joy to this happy mix
get started on the github page !
The goal of the project is to ease the development of hybrid mobile apps, and avoid choosing between native and web : you can just use both and take advantage of the best of each world.
We think that HTML5 is not ready yet : It is hard to create ultra smooth transitions between pages (old devices), touch events are slow as hell, scrolling can be hard if you have a static header/footer, etc
We propose a navigation system between web pages, some cool native components to play with and a solid communication system to let you do native things your way.
Cobalt use native components where HTML5 fails.
Cobalt is ready for iOs, Android, BlackBerry 10, Tizen, and soon Windows Phone
Current Features are :
- customisable native pull-to-refresh
- infiniteScroll detection
- web layers : create sexy popups with a second html layer
- and more...

We are french frogs from brittany, who love to create great native apps, use html5 and mix the both. The Cobalt idea came with some app developped at Haploid.
