    Default Website with aditional functions using WebView

    So I'm developing a website where I can see lists, register produts and stuff but when I open this website on a mobile device, I want to be able to scan QRcodes, take pictures and stuff like that. I thought of making the website for desktop and loading it up through WebView so I can add the extra functionality through java. Is that my best solution for that? I read somewhere that using webview serverside wasn't "good", so I don't know...

    Yes webview just acts like a container or browser to host your applications and its not suggested to put a lot of logic in webview however if its written as an android app then you can create a new activity to do whatever you want.
