For my web application I previously reached the conclusion that the best
approach is to write independent clients with the platform programming and
visual design language instead of trying something cross-platform.
I can see Flutter or QT being great for “we need this to work everywhere
and can sacrifice quality”, but for cases where I really need the
performance and look (which I don’t imagine shares a lot between platforms)
is there argument against just having a native app calling a Go library for
the HTTP client functionality?
