(Opinion) How to implement chat functionality in Ionic

Hi Folks

I am trying to integrate chat functionality in an Ionic Application. As of right now, the backend is Flask and frontend is React. In Standalone mode it works fine.

I am trying to integrate it into an Ionic app. I cannot import the react frontend of chat app into ioinc, so i made an external reference to the chat app.

Now, what i am worried about is, the chat application is React, not Ionic. Within the app, it would be a webpage that is rendered into the app. That would give a little bit of non-native feel.

Is there a better way to implement the chat functionality so that the look and feel is more native, and quite frankly, a little bit les hacky?
