Resource management is one of the key aspects of app development, be it mobile or desktop. The developer has to deal with a variety of resources ranging from images, fonts, splash screen, styles, and raw assets like HTML, PDF or could be even simple text files.
That too when it comes to cross-platform development, each platform has its own way of managing resources and it’s a daunting task for the development team to know and manage all those things. For example, image requirements in multiple sizes to support devices with various resolutions for a rich experience. Fortunately, icon fonts solve a part of this problem by auto-scaling. But still, font is managed differently in each of the platforms.
