About the Book

Wouldn't it be great if you could build mobile apps using just your web development skills? With Ionic, you can do just that: create hybrid mobile apps using web technologies that you already know, like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, that will run on both iOS and Android.

Ionic in Action teaches web developers how to build mobile apps using Ionic and AngularJS. Through carefully explained examples, the book shows you how to create apps that use UI components designed for mobile, leverage current location, integrate with native device features like the camera, use touch gestures, and integrate with external data sources. Learn to test your apps to improve stability and catch errors as you develop. Finally, you'll discover the command-line utility, and how to build and deploy to app stores.

What's Inside
  • Create mobile apps with HTML, JavaScript, and CSS
  • Design complex interfaces with Ionic's UI controls
  • Build once and deploy for both iOS and Android
  • Use native device hardware and device-specific features
  • Covers the entire mobile development process

About the Reader

Readers should know HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Familiarity with AngularJS is helpful but not required.
