Tradera is a Swedish e-auction house and marketplace that is currently owned by PayPal. It’s a Swedish version of eBay (previously owned by eBay) that lets user bid on auction items and buy fixed-prices.

I joined Tradera as backend developer, but shortly became responsible for bringing the mobile apps for iOS and Android back in-house, from the external agency that previously managed them.

After getting the mobile apps back on track, I started working on brand new versions, where the goal was to create hybrid apps that could reuse as much as possible from the new, responsive web.


To wrap the new, responsive web, I created a hybrid framework for iOS and Android, that adjusted the web to run as an app within a native framework, all configured with a configuration engine that let the web site configure the behavior of the apps.

This made it possible for the mobile apps to display all content from the mobile web, excluding content that was explicitly excluded by the configuration engine. The apps also got support for local reminders and push notifications, as well as other native features like deep links.

I left Tradera many years ago. The hybrid apps have since then been replaced with native ones.
