Strada Release Date

When will Strada be released?

I wonder it as well since;

Strada will premiere in 2021

is written on hotwired.dev website. Is it postponed or halted or on its way, so we can use before the end of 2021?

We’re still working on polishing Strada. Might slip into 2022. We’ll see.

@david what problem will it solve?

Letting the HTML drive native UI configuration in apps built with Turbo Native iOS and Android.

@david sounds interesting! What about the problem that accessing native functionality (push, camera, …) requires writing all code twice in two different programming languages (kotlin & swift). Any abstraction layer / single language approach / plugin system planned to address that?

Strada doesn’t address that. It’s built for Turbo Native, which in turn is built for fully-native-by-the-platform apps. You’ll need something else if you want an abstraction higher than that. Though if you pick that, you can of course still embed Webviews and use Turbo with those :+1:

Gotcha. Just curious why you are not considering to address it in the bigger Hotwire ecosystem. Do you think it is not a common / difficult enough problem to solve? Or is there another technology that can be combined with turbo native that solves this?
