Any thoughts or experience with RubyMotion? I learned about it before I got a job, and I love the idea of writing native apps in Ruby, but it seems like (free) JS alternatives like React Native or Electron are more popular and probably work better.

No real experience, just a bit of playing around. But with Swift and Kotlin native coding moved more into the OOP+FP realm and JS seems a closer fit for that.

We recently built a non-trivial React Native app for a client and overall the experience was good.
