Move web module to mobile application and vice versa

It would be nice to be able to move a mobile module to a web application and vice versa. 

This should convert the module to application type and would only be possible if the module only supports things that the type which is being converted to supports, eg: wouldn't be possible to convert a mobile module to a web module if the module had client action or local entities.

Hi Patrícia,

Unfortunately automatic conversion from Traditional Web to Mobile (and vice versa) is not possible, the models are just too different for any conversion to be any good. Experience, security, performance or maintainability of the converted app would always be poor.

On the other hand, we've recently introduced Reactive Web Apps, a new generation of web applications that shares the best features of mobile. With it we've also introduced a feature to convert mobile apps to reactive apps. We are currently also working on allowing the conversion from reactive to mobile, so I'll mark this idea accordingly.

PS: We also expect to publish some guidelines in the future on how to convert traditional web apps to reactive web apps
