Ionic is the mobile app web app framework introduced by google in 2015. Ionic allows web developer to build amazing apps in one codebase, using web development technologies even your grandma knows! These include HTML, CSS/Sass, and  JavaScript but also fits in well alongside other frameworks such as PhoneGap. This allows developers to create native style mobile apps using traditional web technologies with ease.

The main advantages of Ionic  apps are the capability to work both online and offline, incredible performance that combines the best of websites and mobile applications and ease of installation in the user’s device.

The offline capabilities of Ionic  provide speed and performance without degrading the user experience. Developers can deliver the apps on user devices without going through the process of submitting them through app stores

Here’s a summary of the benefits of coding with Ionic:

  • Offline access
  • Faster loading time
  • Native Mobile App user experience
  • No app store submissions
  • One code for all – easier to develop and maintain

Ionic framework has been created to bridge the gap between AngularJS web apps and hybrid mobile apps. It takes advantage of the rich AngularJS and Cordova library for developing highly interactive hybrid applications. This turned out to be a lifesaver for hybrid app development, it provides native like UI components that can be moulded into the framework for iOS, Android and other mobile platforms.
