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.
