Since its release in 2013, the Ionic platform has gained huge respect in the hybrid and mobile development community.
As of January 2019, Ionic has a git repo of 39.9k stars with an active support community. Its open-source mobile app development framework helps to build top-quality native and progressive applications.
Before we dig into details, let’s first look at the three main features of the Ionic framework.
- OSS Framework: Ionic provides open-source, free mobile UI toolkit for building cross-platform apps (iOS, Android, and web) from a single codebase.
- Mobile DevOps: It addresses the complete lifecycle of mobile DevOps with automated native builds, live-updates, and CI/CD.
