The popularity of mobile applications is high and continues to grow. These applications provide users with numerous services for entertainment, leisure, finance, study, life, and productivity, for example. However, the service providers of mobile applications also provide these services on other platforms, such as desktop-based web browsers. Thus, they suffer from the huge effort required to develop, maintain, and deploy their services in a large number of versions and formats over different platforms, from personal computers to mobile devices. To overcome such issues, this paper proposes a uniform development methodology for mobile/desktop applications for institutional repository applications to efficiently reduce effort. The paper demonstrates a single-page application using web technology to develop the desktop and mobile web applications simultaneously.
