  • tauri

    Build smaller, faster, and more secure desktop applications with a web frontend.

  • People seem to love Tauri for desktop apps, but it doesn't seem to be ready for mobile yet.

  • react-native

    A framework for building native applications using React

  • There's also React Native that apparently takes care of both UI and native APIs.

  • NativeScript

    ⚡ Empowering JavaScript with native platform APIs. ✨ Best of all worlds (TypeScript, Swift, Objective C, Kotlin, Java, Dart). Use what you love ❤️ Angular, Capacitor, Ionic, React, Solid, Svelte, Vue with: iOS (UIKit, SwiftUI), Android (View, Jetpack Compose), Dart (Flutter) and you name it compatible.

  • There are layers that offer access to native APIs like capacitor, cordova and nativescript. Apparently sometimes multiple of them should be used, but I didn't understand what are the differences even after reading the announcement. These seem to be frontend agnostic technologies and Capacitor is apparently the more modern choice at the moment.

  • Ionic Framework

    A powerful cross-platform UI toolkit for building native-quality iOS, Android, and Progressive Web Apps with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

  • There are UI Kits like Quasar (Vue-only) and Ionic (React, Angular or Vue).

  • Apache Cordova

    Apache Cordova Android

  • There are layers that offer access to native APIs like capacitor, cordova and nativescript. Apparently sometimes multiple of them should be used, but I didn't understand what are the differences even after reading the announcement. These seem to be frontend agnostic technologies and Capacitor is apparently the more modern choice at the moment.

  • capacitor

    Build cross-platform Native Progressive Web Apps for iOS, Android, and the Web ⚡️

  • CUA

    (no longer maintained) create-universal-app(CUA) is an opinionated template for creating fullstack universal apps (Expo, Next, tRPC, Prisma, Clerk, Solito, Tamagui)

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

  • Flutter

    Flutter makes it easy and fast to build beautiful apps for mobile and beyond

  • Another option is to use Flutter. I've never built anything with it but seems straightforward and it works on all platforms.
