Mastering Ionic: Working with Cloud Firestore

About the Book

Learn to develop Progressive Web Apps using Ionic Framework and Angular powered by Cloud Firestore, Firebase Storage and Firebase Hosting.

Learn the basics of Databases; covering SQL and NoSQL approaches, understanding the differences between ACID and BASE compliance and their respective pros and cons.

Developing from this foundation you'll dive straight into creating 2 fully-featured Ionic/Cloud Firestore applications that can be deployed as Progressive Web Apps.

In the first project that you'll undertake you'll learn how to create a drag and drop Kanban board for scheduling tasks using Angular Material library, custom Angular components and shared services delivered within an Ionic application and deployed through Firebase Hosting.

In the second and final project you'll take your knowledge and skills to deliver an Ionic/Angular Progressive Web App that allows users to create their own custom drawings using HTML5 Canvas and Firebase Storage.

You'll work with the latest versions of the Firebase Web SDK, Ionic/Angular and TypeScript to build, expand and hone your skills with this particular tech stack.

Disclaimer: This ebook assumes that developers have pre-existing familiarity with Ionic Framework and Firebase and is intended to show only a subset of working with Firebase and not the complete range of BaaS functionality available.

About the Author

Jay Gryfford
Jay Gryfford

Jay Gryfford has been involved in the web/mobile development field for more years than he cares to admit having first ventured into the industry not long after the collapse of the dot com bubble.

During this time he’s helped to deliver large-scale projects for a range of clients across the northern hemisphere including Halco Energy, WQA, Maplecroft, West Midlands Police, Virgin Media, Shelter, Evans Cycles, EDF Energy, Rated People & the British Science Association.

His typical daily routine involves working across responsive web design, hybrid mobile app development, content management system development, website optimisation and front-end development using the following core technologies:

  • Ionic Framework
  • StencilJS Web Components 
  • Angular
  • TypeScript
  • JavaScript
  • Firebase
  • Node/MongoDB
  • PouchDB
  • SQLite
  • NgRX/Redux
  • HTML5/CSS 3/Sass

His website Mastering Ionic provides a range of ebooks as well as sharing hundreds of freely available articles on all aspects of Ionic development including working with Angular, StencilJS, Capacitor and many related technologies.

When he's not working with digital technologies Jay can be found traveling, reading, studying history, making sculpture, listening to podcasts, trying to spend as much time in nature as possible and occasionally attempting to relive the fond memories of his teenage years with a spot or two of skateboarding.
