Description

DESCRIPTION AngularJS has rapidly become the most popular web development framework for browser-based applications, but it's not a great solution for mobile apps. Ionic, an open source framework, blends the best features of AngularJS with Cordova (previously known as Phonegap) to package web applications into a native-quality mobile app. In other words, it allows users to build mobile apps using the web technologies they already know and love. Ionic does all the heavy lifting using CSS and JavaScript so users can get clean, native looking cross-platform apps without the hassle of building separate native apps for iOS and Android. Ionic in Action teaches web developers how to build cross-platform mobile apps for phones and tablets. It helps them extend their web development skills to build apps that are indistinguishable from native iOS or Android projects. With carefully explained examples the book shows how to build several mobile apps that demonstrate mobile-specific features such as GPS, camera, notifications, UI controls, and integrating with external data sources. Lastly, the book covers ways to test apps to improve stability and catch errors during development. KEY SELLING POINTS Covers the entire mobile development process Best practices for building mobile apps Sample apps demonstrate wide set of available features AUDIENCE The reader should be experienced in web development with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Some familiarity with AngularJS is helpful but not required. ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY AngularJS is the most popular web development framework for browser-based applications.
