Subject Does Cordova have a problem making developers happy?
Date Wed, 08 Apr 2015 15:01:26 GMT
The data below is from a StackOverflow Developer Survey (

Most Dreaded technologies:
Salesforce           73.2%
Visual Basic        72.0%
Wordpress         68.2%
Matlab                 65.6%
Sharepoint         62.8%
LAMP                    62.2%
Perl                        59.2%
Cordova               58.8%                  **************
Coffeescript       54.7%
Other                    57.3%
% of devs who are developing with the language or tech but have not expressed interest in
continuing to do so.

Any ideas on what the problem is?  Here are some possible answers.  I'm not suggesting that
any of these are true, but rather looking for feedback from those who have heard developers
express frustration with Cordova:

*        There is no problem - unclear question led to the answer

*        The problem is really about creating native apps in JavaScript + HTML5

*        Cordova CLI has a quality problem (learnability | usability | reliability)

o   Too hard to set up development environment

o   The command CLI is too complicated

o   Not enough learning material (documentation, articles, books)

o   Too many bugs

o   Changes too frequently
