Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Allows you to develop native apps
Pro Backed by Facebook
Facebook writes their mobile apps in React Native so the code base gets pretty thoroughly used in some highly demanding scenarios.
Pro More predictable control of the state
The one way data flow, makes it more predictable and easy to control.
Pro Compiles to native platform code
A key difference is that Fuse uses JS exclusively for app logic while producing native code for everything else, including population and manipulation of the UI.
Pro Native performance
Pro OpenGL UI
With the option to use OpenGL based UI components, Fuse is the only of the three platforms that offer a reliable “write once, run everywhere” approach where designers can control responsive layout, look and feel down to points, pixels and percentages, keyframes and easing curves.
Con Steep learning curve
Con If core team doesn't use a certain feature, it's not developed
Whenever there's functionality you need that they don't use in their apps, it's not going to get developed by them, even if it's obvious it should be in the core. They always say to either submit a PR or create a separate module.
Con Little reuse of web knowledge
Fuse doesn't support Angular or React so there is little reuse of existing web tech knowledge. The team have said they are exploring Angular 2 and then maybe React though.
