5 reasons we use Ionic for mobile app development
¿Why it is better to use ionic?
With the passing of years, we have seen Ionic being used more and more for mobile app development. But, what is Ionic and why is it so recommended?
According to its own creators, Ionic is an HTML5 mobile app development framework targeted at building hybrid mobile apps. Hybrid apps are essentially small websites running in a browser shell in an app that has +access to the native platform layer. They have many benefits over pure native apps, specifically in terms of platform support, speed of development, and access to 3rd party code.
Think of Ionic as the front-end UI framework that handles all of the look and feel and UI interactions your app needs in order to be compelling. Kind of like “Bootstrap for Native,” but with support for a broad range of common native mobile components, slick animations, and beautiful design.
Now, we are going to give you 5 rock solid reasons you should think of Ionic as your framework of choice:
- User Interface ComponentsYes, the UI of Ionic apps looks like brand out of the box – something they are very proud of. Ionic comes with predefined styling for different components, so all the elements you can use will look and feel like native elements.
- Powerful yet Simple CLIIonic comes with a very handy command line interface. Whenever you need to create a new project, compile your project to native projects or do anything else inside your project, their CLI will support you a lot.
- Development & Testing SpeedIf you have ever developed native applications you know that it can take a lot of time to develop and debug when you always have to re deploy your app to a simulator or a device. This process is so much faster with Ionic!
