In Detail

With the growth of the start-up market, the time it takes to market your app ideas is crucial. Developing apps using each platform specific format is time consuming and will put you behind in the rat race. Enter the hybrid mobile space: using knowledge of web technologies, one can transform their ideas into complete apps in no time and distribute them to a wide market of people.

Apps developed using web technologies need to have a robust, testable, and scalable client side JavaScript framework. This is where a beautiful CSS framework named Ionic meets AngularJS to provide an elegant, robust, testable, and scalable framework enabling the building of hybrid mobile apps.

With this book, you will learn hybrid mobile application development using Ionic. This book uses Cordova 5.0.0, Ionic CLI 1.5.0 & Ionic 1.0.0 to explain the concepts and build apps.

To begin with, the book helps you understand where Ionic fits in today's world. Then you will deep dive into Ionic CSS components, Ionic-Angular directives, and services. You will also examine theming Ionic apps using the built in SCSS setup.

Next, you will learn to build an Ionic client for a secure REST API, where you will implement user authentication and token-based development. Cordova and ngCordova will be explored and you will learn how you can integrate device specific features like a camera and Bluetooth with an Ionic app. You will wrap up the book by building a messaging app, which will deal with integrating REST API as well as device features.

By the end of this book you will be able to develop a hybrid mobile application from start to finish.
