Mobile WebView in Ionic


We have created desktop apps using Electron by loading our web application within Electron browser window. It works fast and we didn’t feel the need to use any custom HTML/CSS within electron for our website.

I was very excited when I got to know about Ionic, hoping that we could similarly create mobile apps by loading our existing website within some webview in Ionic, instead of creating a fresh UI.

After going through various Ionic docs, we are realizing that there is no way we can load our app inside Ionic. ngCordova InAppBrowser will not work for us as it ignores Ionic tabs.

Electron lets us build custom menus which work perfectly fine when we load external websites inside Electron browser control. But is there something similar in Ionic?
