Is it possible to use Ionic-native in a standard Cordova application?

Hello everyone, I’m a react developer that’s struggling with a tight timeline to get our next project out into production. I’m tired of using react-native because the styling and animation system is garbage compared to CSS (Personal opinion).

Instead of taking the time to learn Angular and use Ionic for my application, I’m curious if it’s possible to just use ionic-native in a non-ionic cordova application. If so, I can pretty easily create a react-cordova app and not be struggling to find any type of native functionality.

No. thats why it’s named Ionic native. Must be an ionic application.

Ionic Native is a TypeScript wrapper for Cordova/PhoneGap plugins //copycat
Is there a problem using the underlaying cordova plugins?

Ionic 4 is supposed to play nicely with React; you could look into how far that has been implemented yet.
