  • capacitor

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

  • svelte-capacitor

    Build hybrid mobile apps using Svelte and CapacitorJS with live reloading on Android and iOS!

    I develop a realrovely popular open source Svelte[1] related template (w/ live reload!) to develop cross platform apps.

    Capacitor really is a beauty to work with. While I disagree on some design decisions (putting build platforms at the root of the directory for one) the overall ecosystem is quite healthy and strong, and while backwards compat with Cordova is hit or miss, its quite good for an old school tool thats a decade old.

  • capacitor-configure

    Manage Capacitor projects through code or configuration

    Absolutely. If it’s not in a Capacitor plugin and it’s custom native code or config, you manage those things as you would any other native iOS or Android project. On iOS just add it to your Podfile or add the library in Xcode. In Android add it as a dependency. We have some automated configuration tooling coming if you really don’t want to touch the IDEs at all:
