Wry comment aside (lol), it might be possible for an enterprising user to adapt the VSCode plugin to other environments. Not 100% sure there, but seems like it could be an option.
You’ll need at least that version, but anything later should also work.
If you try one of the linked examples in PGB do they exhibit the same problem? If not, looking for differences between the configs might point out the issue.
I wish I could give this more than 50 claps; this is so me (including figuring out hinges…) that it’s a little spooky. ;-) I’ve pretty much come to the same conclusion too — harness the imposter to grow and advance, but don’t let it control one’s self and cause one to miss opportunities. And if one ever thinks one has got it all figured out… well……
This isn’t necessarily true. Apple accepts apps written with .Net, which would allow for a good deal of reuse. Granted, .Net isn’t a supported language by Apple, but they don’t reject apps solely because they are built with it.
So here’s my standard advice to people considering Cordova: if you just want to wrap a web app, don’t. If any native functionality you need is already available via the webview, don’t use Cordova. On the other hand, if you need access to some native functionality (or polyfill) that isn’t available in a webview, and you want to leverage your existing skillsets, then it’s worth considering Cordova.
