Interesting that code formatting has been your biggest issue when learning programming ... on the other hand, coincidentally I also recognize the spreadsheet thing - the moment I learned that you couldn't just type in numbers and formulas, but that you could "script" stuff in order to automate things, that was just an eye opener and a ton of fun.

I think it's not a bad choice to go for JS/React - it's so mainstream these days, which gives you a lot of leverage ... Xcode is a beast, and Swift ties you into Apple as well - if you're into developing native mobile apps then why not check out Flutter? It's cross-platform so you can just target Android and iOS with the same codebase, how cool it that.
