Let us check out some reasons why choose Ionic Framework Open source Platform
A traditional mobile app development costs a lot to the business head right from the research to strategy to marketing and forget about the small business but ionic being open sourced is licensed under MIT and is easy to learn on the basis of web languages which are known to many for web development.
The main reason for the time consuming mobile app development was the time spend by mobile app developers over the coding of different elements separately such as filters, navigation menu, forms, tab bars, list views and many more. The ionic framework has a set of elements listed and pre-coded for the developers and all they have to do is logically place all the elements at the right place to provide a functional application.
Large Community and expanding
Its quite challenging to come up with an open source productive framework in the world that literally runs on payments but the ionic community is pretty vast and active on social platforms such as blog posts, forums and commenting to address the possible problems faced by the developers while using the framework for the mobile app development. Just like Linux, ionic has a reputation for robust software which is known to many but understood by only a few.
Build using Angular JS
In the Ionic framework, the shells are designed to handle the compatibility with the different operating system. This code structure where the developer puts its logic for the application is build using Angular.js which is both reliable and efficient. The backend code of the framework allows the mobile apps to be launched in any app store without any setbacks and provide a native feel.
One app for multiple OS
The flexibility of using the same code for iOS and Android is a wonderful computing research made by experts to let the high charging native developers bring down the cost for the making of a single platform mobile app and also an alternative to them to use their web development language skills to deliver projects in less time and low price.
Plugins powered by Cordova
The user interface is the first thing to build in the mobile application for which the iOS and Android app developers seem to have a reputation but with Ionic the motion of colors, swiping of the screen and high standards of user interface designs. The support of multiple language keywords is an advantage to the framework which makes it globally acceptable and designing an app with an input of native language brings large user base.
- Ease of testing
The testers can easily run the script using Cordova commands for both iOS and Android. The ease of debugging the lengthy codes is provided by the ionic framework and the tester can simply open chrome or safari to test an application’s actual performance on iPhone and Android phone.
The reusability of the code is using the features of an existing software to develop the new software with a slight change and healthy output. The Android and iOS app developers do this to avail similar features in different applications.
The Ionic framework, when combined with Angular JS and Cordova, gives an interactive hybrid app in competition with iOS and Android app development. Hybrid apps are always considered to have lacked in the presentation and at the customer end presentation is everything which is not true though because Twitter, an exclusively famous social media app falls under the category of hybrid apps and is loved by users. The combination of Ionic, Angular J and Cordova makes the hybrid app development seamless to native app development at a much cheaper rate.
