This sounds awesome and i read the article and watched the demo but isn’t portals the same as “capacitor” but in a paid model ? I mean can you please make it clear how come portals is different from capacitor ?

Portals uses Capacitor but it's built to be dropped into an existing native app (Capacitor doesn't support that today). It also has additional features for remote updates of multiple Portals in a single app, as well as some future tooling to make it easier to work with in large native app projects. As we build it out a bit more hopefully the differences will become more apparent. Thanks!

Right, but isn't using a web view in a native app - what capacitor already is?
