Building Mobile app using plain Cordova without using Meteor's default build system

We are not using Meteor’s default build system for our frontend. We are using create-react-app build structure with meteor-client-bundler. We use meteor-client-bundler to package all the meteor packages needed by the frontend app in to a file. Then we include this meteor-bundle-file in the create-react-app build flow. This is how our frontend is built.

Now, we are trying to package this frontend app inside Cordova as a mobile app. We cannot use the Meteor’s out of the box mobile building platform. We want to build the frontend app by instructing it to package it as a Mobile app, so that it includes the “isCordova”(=true) flag and also include all the needed Cordova plugins (cordova-plugin-googleplus etc) and the settings. This is all being tried by using either Ionic’s Capacitor or Cordova.

Can you please suggest how to package the meteor app as a mobile app using either Capacitor OR Cordova, without using Meteor’s default packaging system?

Thanks in advance.

I’m also curious about the possibility of using Capacitor within the Meteor build process in place of Corodova. Capacitor purports to be a more ‘modern’ approach to building cross-platform apps, including a specific PWA target. My guess would be that Cordova is too tightly coupled with Meteor’s build/packaging processes currently to make such a substitution possible cleanly though.

Can anyone help clarify this for us? Thanks!
