#4. How to Build the DoorDash App
What Platform is DoorDash Built on
DoorDash was written in Kotlin. Kotlin is a backend language best for Android specific concise code.
When the app first launched it was built on Python 2 and Django. Currently no longer receiving security support. For more information on how the DoorDash team migrated to Kotlin and why it was chosen over other major languages, check out the DoorDash Engineering blog.
Our team would build the app using React Native. Since React Native is a cross-platform development framework, our team could easily develop both an iOS and Android app with relative ease. React Native provides a sleek, smooth and fast user interface, perfect for a mobile app.
How Long Does it Take to Develop an App Like DoorDash
Based on all the available features for the DoorDash App and the Dasher app, as well as the restaurant features, we’d estimate a year. Depending on the depth of features and functionality, as well as compliance (if applicable), the timeline of your app may or may not be extended or shortened.
How Much Does it Cost to Develop an App
For a specific estimate contact us. It’s hard to judge what the price of your mobile app will be without a concrete feature list and wireframes. Our best guess, for a full suite of an Android and iOS app and the full list of features we previously mentioned would cost anywhere from $150k to $250k.
