what is the best option to update a system developed with Vanilla Theme?

Guys, I need an advice.

I have a system developed with Vanilla Theme and I need to update and expand it. My question is: should I move it to traditional web or ReApps?  I realized that ReApps demand much more effort to do the same task in traditional web. What is the best cost/benefit reusing the maximum possible?

Cheers

Hi Luciano,

A web app with Vanilla Theme is already a traditional web app but uses the SilkUI framework. Nowadays new Traditional Web apps use the OutSystems UI Web frame work. For more information on converting from Silk UI to OutSystems UI read:

Migrating your app to a Reactive Web app is considerable more work (of course depending on the size of your application in terms of webblocks and screens, and custom styling). For more info on migrating to Reactive Web read: https://success.outsystems.com/Support/Enterprise_Customers/Upgrading/Introduction_into_migrating_Traditional_Web_to_Reactive_Web_Apps/Traditional_to_Reactive_App_migration_reference 

From the two alternatives, I would believe that migrating to Traditional Web app using OutSystems UI is the easiest and cheapest option.

Regards,

Daniel
