Tips for developing my first App

I am observing the difference between Córdoba and Capacitor.
Everything seems to indicate that the capacitor will be the most correct.
I am in front of the application code, Angular with Ionic.
But the previous developer ran the app with ng serve, just using the Angular commands.
used < ion- button > and others items in the html.
I must start a new project and develop an application based on my partner’s but with improvements.

Tab template would start already from ionic start.,
Currently the tabs are a component created by us, it was not downloaded in the template and the routing is different.

What would you recommend?

I continue my partner’s code (cordova, ionic weak use)


Start an Ionic Capacitor project with official Tabs and reuse my partner’s code
