Capacitor allows developers to build high-quality mobile applications for iOS, Android, and the web using a single codebase written in web technologies such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Capacitor uses modern web standards and APIs to provide access to native device features and functionality.

One of the main advantages of Capacitor is its ease of use. It is built on top of modern web technologies, which makes it easy for developers to transition from web development to mobile development. Capacitor also has a simple and intuitive API that provides developers with access to a wide range of native device features, such as geolocation, camera, and notifications.

Overall, Capacitor is a powerful and flexible tool that can help developers create high-quality mobile applications for multiple platforms quickly and easily.

Capacitor is best for developers who are familiar with web technologies and want to cross-platform mobile apps.


  • Cross-platform

    Capacitor allows developers to build mobile apps for multiple platforms, including Android and iOS, using a single codebase.

  • Native APIs

    Capacitor provides a bridge between the web technologies and the native APIs of the operating systems. This means that developers can access native functionality such as camera, contacts, and file storage.

  • Web Technologies

    Developers can use web technologies like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to build mobile apps with Capacitor, which they may already be familiar with. This can make development faster and more comfortable.

  • Plugins

    Capacitor has a plugin system that allows developers to extend the functionality of their apps. There are many plugins available to help developers build apps faster.


  • Performance

    Apps built with Capacitor may not perform as well as those built natively due to the overhead introduced by the webview.

  • Emerging Community

    Capacitor is a relatively new framework, which means that there is not a lot of tutorials, and examples available to help developers apps.
