I know we can wrap glideapps and probably other web apps but can we wrap web sites too?
By wrap, do you mean embed?
Glide apps do not allow themselves to be embedded. They used to, but this was stopped a few months ago.
Some web sites allow themselves to be embedded, but many (most?) do not.
No, I’m talking about when you wrap your web app to a native app? That one. Somebody in the community posted their service called nativator too?
Embedding is merging a new web page in the app right? Wow, why did glide remove that feature?
For security reasons.
Regarding wrapping, do you mean wrapping a website so it looks like a native app? That’s the core of the thing Nativator did with Glide apps as well, I believe. What’s your use case?
Wait, so we can’t put a glide app in playstore or an app store?
Or is it just the web page Embedding part that’s been removed?
Yes. If you can turn your Glide app into a native app. For this I recommend that you use “nativator.io” From there you can choose whether you want it in the “App Store” or “Play Store” format.
I myself have several apps made in Glide transformed into native apps.
To do this you just have to enter “Nativator.io” and follow the steps indicated on the website. It is quite simple.
If this is the solution to your problem, I would appreciate it if you would mark this answer as “solution”. Greetings!
Thanks, but my primary question is can we wrap websites too?
Yes, if you can do it perfectly.
In fact you can also do this yourself with “Android Studio” but it is obviously a more complicated process.
This is not officially supported, but Nativator does it for you. I don’t know if all features in Glide can be successfully converted or not though.
If you make it to the store, make sure your app is not simply a wrapped web view version. It will eventually be removed.
What should I do differently to avoid this?
