Ionic for hybrid applications development

I started using it with my thesis advisor recommendation, am building an app that should fully function on ios and Android, so we decided to ionic and that's the best decision i made.

Pros

Ionic is best app development environment if you are planning to build hybrid applications and wants avoid double work ,which is writing code for Android and ios in separate. And for people who wants ready for use design they can just pick one template and customize it as their own needs .that's so helpful and time saving for most users.

Cons

I don't have anything that i can mention as a drawback of ionic but since this days there are many new competitors with same features and functionality, ionic should keep updating itself

Despite the drawbacks, it's a good solution to start building a PWA or hybrid app.
You can start with little code copy-paste from the tutorial and have "something" to start building on.
We have apps and portals build with it and are generally quite happy once you get used to some of the drawbacks.
Also I've started using the new streamlined wizards to setup new projects and it seems the've solved a lot of the issues and complexity.

Pros

That it's very extensible, and it uses HTML/SCSS, which allows us to leverage a million of external plugins, codepens etc.
It's brilliant and allows for a afantastic looking app that everyone on the team can add to with little previous knowledge.

Cons

The quirks. The build system is slow and oftentimes fails for no particular reason.
Deleting the cache, node_modules and rebuilding from scratch (which can take a long time) slowed down our team more time than I'd like.
Also the setup process for a new team member once your app is large enough gets stupidly complicated.

A good mobile UI toolkit for quick projects

Reviewed on 2023/12/27

Pros

A great framework to add to projects that have strict deadlines or budgets. It's great that it integrates with Angular and helps build cross-platform mobile apps with a consistent and polished user interface.

Cons

The main thing was the learning curve, for people who are new to the framework.

we have developed 2-3 application for the inhouse employees such as for Sales People, Management People for their day to day activities. Overall experience is very good. Saved lots of $ by developing application in Ionic.

Pros

1. Feel like a native application is one of the key feature Ionic is having.
2. Its feature to code once and deploy multiple times is very useful and saves lots of efforts in terms of money and time.
3. Ready made templates are available

Cons

1. Customize application development is little bit challenge sometimes when you need to build customized controls.
2. Continuous updates are required as new version of ionic and angular is coming very frequently.
