A very large difference in ease

Simple Web Development with Xojo. Do you find it frustrating to create web apps? HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and AJAX can be challenging, and frameworks such as Node, React, Ruby on Rails, ASP.NET, PHP and Java are often overwhelming for those just beginning web development.

There is a simpler solution: Xojo. Using a single programming language and a single IDE, you can go from zero to a working web app in an amazingly short amount of time with Xojo. [Xojo Blog]

In my experience the difference in complexity is enormous. Not long ago I was assigned to write a GWT composite widget containing over a dozen other widgets. To be sure I understood the written spec, I first created a working prototype of the widget as a Xojo container control so that I could show it my boss and confirm that I understood what he wanted. Once he had confirmed it, I implemented the same UI using GWT. The Xojo version took an hour and had a dozen lines of code. The same UI in GWT took a week and 150 lines of code.
