Know More

Deliver a serious enterprise grade mobile app with HTML5 skills and let us do the enterprise heavy-lifting

DronaHQ broadly consists of 2 parts


Client SDK

DronaHQ Cloud

Multi Language Content management and notification engine

A strong CMS and notifications are key features in any app you decide to build. From the DronaHQ console you can add content like videos, articles or feedback forms and 20+ different content types and push messages and schedule them at a click of a button. It’s intuitively built to increase the engagement levels of your app multifold.

DronaHQ Cloud

  • Management features: A ready dashboard to manage Users, App, Catalogue, Upgrades, Roles and Admins management.
  • Configuration features: Out of the box configurations for the required security, enterprise policies, device properties, branding and different types of login into the app.
  • Operational features: A ready list of ’must haves’ in your app including bug reporting, usage analytics, push notifications, app distribution mechanisms, feedback engine and more.
  • REST APIs: Extend the cloud features and integrate inside your own app with the easy to use REST APIs.

DronaHQ HTML5 Container

Multi Language Content management and notification engine

A strong CMS and notifications are key features in any app you decide to build. From the DronaHQ console you can add content like videos, articles or feedback forms and 20+ different content types and push messages and schedule them at a click of a button. It’s intuitively built to increase the engagement levels of your app multifold.

DronaHQ HTML5 Container

  • Pre-built app: You get a pre-built, cross platform, white branded and appstore ready apps.
  • Hot code deployment: A unique approach to deploy your HTML5 over the air, expose continuous deployment to your developers.
  • Device APIs: Powerful high engineering device APIs ranging from offline sync, secure key value storage, secure SQLite storage, SSO, pre-consumed notification and more.
  • Native APIs powered by Cordova: DronaHQ runs on Cordova + Crosswalk runtime which gives high flexibility to your HTML5 across OS versions and access to all native features.

Login configurations

Enterprise app logins are complex, we offer a range of out of the box configurations for login


3 types of login

  • AD login on oAuth 2.0 and SAML protocols
  • Custom login page which connect to bespoke authentication systems or social media accounts
  • Ready to use DronaHQ login controls (Includes invite emails and other configurations)

These configurations take the sting out of developing these things from scratch and adhering to protocols and save a lot of time and heart burn. To top it off, its not a skill every developer has

Real offline apps

The crux of building any mobile app is to be available offline in a secure way. We cover the whole gamut of offline models used for different kinds of apps


3 types of offline models

  • Plain vanilla auto data caching
  • Offline sync of data
  • Complete ’master data’ offline apps

Every secure offline screens adds huge man-hours, validations and complexity to an app. To add to it, offline apps require various other things in place to wipe and handle data residing offline. DronaHQ makes this simple without writing a single line of code

On-device security

With BYOD coming in, the data security on the device becomes increasingly critical. With encryption and security standards being defined, DronaHQ device APIs and configurations gives developers and administrators a ready to use infrastructure


Top 3 security considerations

  • Device APIs for secure local storage, SQLite and file storage
  • Enterprise wipe, device loss wipe, 2 factor MPIN login and other controls
  • jail broken/rooted devices, device limits, copy-paste and screenshot controls

We at DronaHQ think security is a specialised skill and not every mobile app/front-end developer has or need to have deep expertise on it. DronaHQ makes this process simpler by giving ready modules on the same

Pre-built future proof apps

Every mobile app that is developed needs to be upgraded every year with OS upgrades coming in every year across platforms. Constant DronaHQ app releases help you future proof all the apps you build on it


3 reasons to use a pre-built DronaHQ core

  • Thorough tested battle ready mobile app
  • Future proof your apps to work across all future OS versions
  • Get appstore ready builds for all platforms instantly

Every mobile app takes approx. 12 months to stabilise with constant bug fixing and iterations. Using a pre-built DronaHQ core accelerates the stability to day 1

Configurable enterprise policies

Apps built for enterprises need to include a range of policies to be universally acceptable


3 broad types of configurations readily provided on DronaHQ

  • Security configurations like device loss, device limits, enterprise wipe etc
  • Usage policies like screenshot detect, copy-paste stop, jailbroken/rooted devices etc
  • Configurable Identity connects like oAuth/SAML to internal enterprise systems/IDPs/AD

All these policies are heavily interlinked and requires deep understanding of the data flow and enterprise data. Using DronaHQ makes it extremely simple and configurable

Cordova + Crosswalk runtime

A webview runtime which is a highly engineered versions of Cordova (for native APIs) and Crosswalk (for a seamless performance across disparate Android OS versions)


A decoupled architecture where the HTML5 and the webview runtime are packaged differently

  • It gives the developer a leverage to upgrade and iterate the HTML5 runtime
  • Saves the developers a lot of time in re-engineering Cordova and Crosswalk to meet the necessary security requirements
  • The developers get a liberty to target a single chromium and get the same experience across all versions of Android

Cordova + Crosswalk is quite the norm when it comes to hybrid application, DronaHQ leverages and gives an out of the box implementation of the same in a completely de-coupled architecture

App distribution & usage analytics

All mobile apps need to be distributed to users and all businesses need to monitor usages, installs and other critical things to have an operational outlook to the app


Why would anyone invest in building this backend everytime for all the apps being developed

  • The whole app needs to sync and throw data back to a custom backend, in this case it need not be built from scratch every time
  • Ready out of the box insights on the app usage, installs, device configurations and more
  • Invitation emails, universal app distribution links, signed and white branded app store ready builds and the works

The more time a mobile app developer is spending time on the ancillary things, the lesser he is focussing on the usability of the app

Multiple apps - orchestrate common functionality

All enterprises have a roadmap to build multiple apps for same or different user groups, its ends up duplicating a lot of common functionality and reusable components, DronaHQ pitches in with a ready catalogue management


Why do you need cataloging of HTML5 apps

  • Common functionality is duplicated across multiple apps and its valuable efforts wasted
  • Monolithic systems are really hard to maintain
  • You can’t expect your users to download, upgrade and sign in into multiple apps and systems

DronaHQ rather suggests a micro app (micro-service) architecture even for single apps which ends up saving truckloads of efforts, time and money and heart burn for eventual users. Its a natural way to scale efficiently

Build self managed apps

With BYOD and increasing issues with MDM, the world is moving to wards unmanaged devices and self managed apps. Its increasingly becoming important to encapsulate app management features inside the apps


Cases where self managed apps score

  • Apps for unmanaged devices in an enterprise (employees not enrolled on the MDM)
  • External enterprise users like distributors, agents, contract workers and external audience
  • Apps that can upgrade themselves when changes are pushed (hot code deployment) in a continuous deployment methodology

We predict that in the next 3 years most mobile apps that are built will be self managed with very little to be done on Dev Ops side. DronaHQ is in the quest to help developers build self managed apps with out of the box configurable features

On-Device SSO

With a micro-service (microapp) architecture the biggest hurdle is SSO between them and a secure key sharing architecture


Why is SSO such a complexity

  • Secure key exchange and refresh between the container and original IDP
  • Device (Javascript) APIs to share tokens between micro services
  • Eliminate multiple sign-in clunky apps

Micro-service architectures also means sandboxing of data that each service saves or uses. the apps once deployed on DronaHQ automatically sandboxes the same
