I have a vanilla JS web application. Super basic. Some HTML, some CSS, and some JS. The server side is written in Node.js. I want to now make the UI portion of the app built as an Android and IOS app for mobile. I have looked at the following products but am still not sure. I don't think there is a one-to-one solution, but maybe I am wrong. Basically I don't want to write my UI twice.. but maybe it is necessary. I am trying to avoid React/Vue/Angluar etc because, well, I hate them. All I need is HTML and vanilla JS.

So far I have looked in to

  • PhoneGap
  • ionic
  • electron (obviously wrong, if it built for Mobile it would be perfect)
  • jquery UI

I really don't want to re-write my web app in jQuery, or React, or Angular. I am totally fine doing this in a hacky way, as long as it works. But it really needs to support ES6 and all the type of events we are used to like drag events, click events, etc.
