Ionic Framework By Example

By: Sani Yusuf

Overview of this book

Change doesn’t have to be challenging. Sometimes it can be simple – sometimes it just makes sense. With Ionic, mobile development has never been so simple, so elegant and obvious. By helping developers to harness AngularJS and HTML5 for mobile development, it’s the perfect framework for anyone obsessed with performance, and anyone that understands just how important a great user experience really is. This book shows you how to get started with Ionic framework immediately. But it doesn’t just give you instructions and then expect you to follow them. Instead it demonstrates what Ionic is capable of through three practical projects you can follow and build yourself. From a basic to-do list app, a London tourist app, to a complete social media app, all three projects have been designed to help you learn Ionic at its very best. From setting up your project to developing on both the server side and front end, and best practices for testing and debugging your projects, you’ll quickly become a better mobile developer, delivering high performance mobile apps that look awesome. Ionic Framework by Example is for people who don’t want to learn now, build later – it’s for people who want to learn and build at the same time – so they can meet today’s mobile development challenges head on and deliver better products than anyone else.

Creating a new to-do list application

In Chapter 2, To-Do List App, we created a simple to-do list application with the Ionic blank template. We were able to get this application to work by allowing us to add items into our to-do list application. We will be creating a new to-do list application using the Ionic blank template for us to add our new, more advanced components to our brand new BucketList application. Let's go ahead and create this new blank application by following the following steps. We will be calling our new application Bucket-List in order to differentiate it from the one we created in Chapter 2, To-Do List App.

  1. To create the Bucket-List app, fire up a terminal window on your computer and navigate to the Desktop folder of your computer by running the following command:

    cd Desktop
  2. After navigating to the Desktop folder of your computer, go ahead and run the following command to create the Bucket-List application based on the Ionic blank template:

    ionic start Bucket-List...
