Why haven't elixir been used to develop mobile apps like react native

Looking at the short and effective syntax of elixir and with other excellent traits, why hasn’t there been a mobile app framework from elixir. is elixir lacking something ?

PS. I Know its a noob question but need an answer or opinion…

Problem: you need the BEAM on the mobile device.
But actually there is a project to make that happen, see:


There‘s also the fact that the beam while being great for actual long running systems, has quite a large initial startup time. This can be problematic for the UX in mobile devices where you cannot spend seconds to start up.
