About the Book

Learn Ionic 4 From Scratch

Launch your mobile development career by creating amazing cross platform applications with Angular, Vue and React.

Creating mobile applications with web technologies has never been easier. Ionic uses the power of Stencil to create performant applications that we can bundle as a native application, or deploy as a Progressive Web Application. By the end of this book, you'll be able to create mobile experiences using Angular, React, Vue.js and JavaScript.

This book covers everything from:

  • Ionic 4 with Angular, Vue.js and React.
  • Master the Ionic CLI.
  • Styling.
  • Ionic Components.
  • Local Data Storage
  • Routing patterns (with lazy loading).
  • Much more!

Here's a specific breakdown of some project(s) we create within the book:

React Projects

Bitcoin Price Tracker

Leverage your React skills to create a Bitcoin price tracker with Ionic 4 and React. You can see an example of the final project here.

  • How to create an Ionic application with React and TypeScript.
  • How to get data from a REST API.
  • How to display "Skeleton UI" data whilst gathering data from an API.
  • How to display data on-screen using React.
  • How to theme our Ionic application using CSS variables

Vue.js iTunes Search

In this section we'll create a Vue.js and Ionic project that uses the iTunes API to display album data for a particular artist.

By the end of this section you will have created an application that takes advantage of:

  • Using `fetch` to get data from the iTunes API
  • How to use `async` and `await` as a modern way to work with JavaScript promises
  • How to display data on screen using Ionic components
  • Use Vue.js and Ionic to represent our state as UI components.
