Developers, in turn, can use the same business logic for web, mobile, and desktop versions applications and consequently have less trouble with code maintenance.

Developing a platform-independent application is a challenging task. So if you decide to start such a project, you will certainly require a special framework…

Thus, they often invest in the development of business web applications complemented with a corresponding tool — a JavaScript planning calendar.

In this article, you will get an insight into planning…


Just a few months ago, our product portfolio of UI components for project management apps was enriched with Gantt libraries for React, Vue, and Svelte.

The first version included the most essential Gantt features but the second update — minor version 1.1 released on May 27, 2021 — brings out already more sophisticated abilities. …


Modern business applications are often built with the help of popular JavaScript frameworks. It has given us an idea — why not develop Gantt libraries in pure React, Svelte, and Vue.js that are currently much-loved by web developers. Such solutions can help to exclude any external dependencies or compatibility issues and speed up the development process.
