Gtk would be a great target for Reactxp since ubuntu announced their intent to move to gnome platform ,there is somewhat a broad consensus among linux vendors that gnome with gtk is their future.

Reactxp will enable devs to target these platforms to create truly cross platform app development experience

This would require someone to first implement a React Native environment targeting Linux. Are you aware of any such effort underway?

Okay, but why not QT, it already is cross-platform library and not specific to Gnome apps, which don't integrate very well into another DEs.

Unless/until there is a React Native port for Linux Gtk, ReactXP won't support it natively. You can, of course, use a web wrapper solution like Electron to host a web client on Linux.
