In order to compete with PHP, Ruby and ASP software development, we need tools to create amazing and upto date interface. All the Cloud software companies are offering great API and CSS Files for development. It would be amazing if Xpages had the its own tools ( Dojo) and its own embeded fields that could match the google material design. This way we could really create 1st class mobile software for Cloud users.
I think lotus Notes has a lot of potential. I wish it had the tools to design Material design in xpages. Imagine you could just drag and drop and create a great mobile apps with out any major style sheets and other tools.
Right now we are working with top major banks in USA and they are all asking for amazing fast developed Mobile apps . We do not want to copy and paste HTML to xpages. We want to just drag and drop field and panels and the mobile apps will be created automatically.
