I appreciate if anyone could answer this question:
I was thinking to create a "native wrapper" with React Native myself that would point to my webapp in a webview but now I'm wondering how would it be different than just using Ionic? In other words, if all you want to use RN for is building a native wrapper why not just using Ionic or other similar hybrid platforms that allow using web technologies for targeting different platforms? Any thoughts? Is the difference in code sharing with desktop or web? Or Vendor lock in? or lack of possibility to integrate into another native app in future? Would appreciate a list of pros and cons or any info
