Capacitor

TUTORIALS

Capacitor is a cross-platform app runtime that makes it easy to build web apps that run natively on iOS, Android, Electron, and the web. Capacitor can work with any web project, it’s not specific to Ionic apps.

Capacitor provides a consistent, web-focused set of APIs that enable an app to stay as close to web-standards as possible, while accessing rich native device features on platforms that support them. It has full support for PWAs.

It's a spiritual successor to Apache Cordova and Adobe PhoneGap. Its mantra is "Code once, configure everywhere". We love working with Capacitor because the developer experience is incredibly good.

The following tutorials explain how to use Capacitor on your Ionic projects and also how to migrate your current Cordova projects to Capacitor.
