It started as a simple project, a small utility for my dad's pest control company, the first iteration was using the most poppular framework at the time, AngularJS, we're talking around 2016; as it evolved I researched and used several technologies like Redux, css-modules, css flex and grid, Angular 2, Svelte, Watermelon DB for the mobile app, and also it made me learn Swift with CoreData. Currently it uses cutting edge technologies like React, NodeJS, GraphQL, Docker, MongoDB, AWS services, React Native, and a lot more.

Cretia is now a Sass bussiness with over 16 different modules that solve different issues of bussinesses, even tho it started it's focus on Pest Control companies, it's also a CRM for small Mexican businesses; it's comprehended on a Mobile App, two Web Applications for different users and a set of microservices and one GraphQL API.

  • Special sign-in mechanisms including Apple, Google, MagicLink and WebAuthn.
  • Fully featured PWA
  • Multi-language support
  • Offline-ready mobile app that syncs data when network is available

NodeJS API

The API consists of a GraphQL API that serves the web app and the mobile app, database is served by MongoDB at MongoDB Cloud and the Node servers are hosted in AWS thru the SCS service.

Mobile App

The mobile app is developed in React Native and it uses the Apollo Client to communicate with the GraphQL API and support offline capabilities. It has a Peer to Peer communication module on iOS.
