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.

$ionicConfigProvider is a provider that Ionic exposes and which allows us to do some very powerful configurations. We will not be writing any code for this as it is an advanced feature but you should be well aware of its existence.

Some of the features that $ionicConfigProvider lets you do, include the following:

  • Specify the transition type for your app

  • Set the maximum cache

  • Disable/enable animations

  • Enable/enable native scrolling

  • Specify tabs positions

These and many more are some of the features that $ionicConfigProvider lets you fiddle with. Remember that this feature is a fairly advanced feature and it is very likely possible to completely design your app without it. Most apps most likely do not use its features but if you find yourself ever needing to use it, you can visit the official documentation for $ionicConfigProvider to see its full potential at$ionicConfigProvider/.
