What is ionic framework?
Ionic Framework focuses on the frontend UX and UI interaction of an app, UI controls, interactions, gestures, animations. It’s easy to learn, and integrates with other libraries or frameworks, such as Angular, React, or Vue. Alternatively, it can be used standalone without any frontend framework using a simple script include.
- One codebase, running everywhere
Ionic is the only mobile app stack that enables web developers to build apps for all major app stores and the mobile web from a single codebase. And with Adaptive Styling, Ionic apps look and feel at home on every device.
- Native and Web optimized
Ionic emulates native app UI guidelines and uses native SDKs, bringing the UI standards and device features of native apps together with the full power and flexibility of the open web. Ionic uses Capacitor (or Cordova) to deploy natively, or runs in the browser as a Progressive Web App.
- A focus on performance
Ionic is built to perform and behave great on the latest mobile devices with best practices like efficient hardware accelerated transitions, and touch-optimized gestures.
- Clean, simple, and functional design
Ionic is designed to work and display beautifully on all current mobile devices and platforms. With ready-made components, typography, and a gorgeous (yet extensible) base theme that adapts to each platform, you’ll be building in style.
Build and deploy apps that work across multiple platforms, such as native iOS, Android, desktop, and the web as a Progressive Web App – all with one code base. Write once, run anywhere.
- Web Standards-based
- Beautiful Design
Clean, simple, and functional. Ionic Framework is designed to work and display beautifully out-of-the-box across all platforms. Start with pre-designed components, typography, interactive paradigms, and a gorgeous (yet extensible) base theme.
