and Ionic seems like one of the bigger players (all i could really see is either React Native or Ionic tbh, i don't want to start with a half assed "weekend project" that lacks every feature imaginable and will be abandoned in a few months) in the Node.js "cross platform mobile development" space
and the learning curve seems relatively fine to me. It does give me strong "premium capitalsm open source" software vibes which... I mean, its the state of everything in tech sadly these days so can't do much about that.
I'm certain (although admittedly, didn't check) they include a bunch horrific privacy breaching trackers and shit in builds but I'll figure that out when the time comes.
