I'd suggest just learning Java or Kotlin
devJoe28083yKotlin more like C++ or typescript
Although you could use web app "frameworks" for lack of a better word, if it fits your needs. Cordova for example. They just warp the web app in a webview application and expose bunch of APIs to it.
#1. You can learn languages quite easily, they are all C-like languages so you are more than half way learning the other one if you know any other.
They got pretty much same keywords, class structure (in ES6 anyways) etc.
#4. You still have to learn the APIs whatever route you take, so I don't see why not learn a new language while you're at it.
I'm sorry if I sound like a dig, I just wanted to help.
@joas naah, you don't sound rude (I'm not trying to be that either)
1: sure, you can learn the syntax easily, but writing idiomatic code is a lot harder
2: really depends on the field you're working in
3: you can compile anything to anything
4: because you're still learning the API, I think learning another language at the same time might be a bit too much for some people
