Why we are the loyal fans of Ionic 3.0 version

Since day one, we are a big fan of the Ionic app framework.

With each of their latest version, our love for their features and effort to make developers happy, is quadrupling.

When they launched Ionic 3.0, we were moved by their new features, improvements and more options to develop better and functional hybrid apps.

After developing scores of applications with the latest Ionic, we are now the loyal fans of this fantastic framework.

Why so? Let’s dive deep into the offerings of the Ionic 3.0-

Compatibility with the latest Angular 4.0:

The romance of Ionic and Angular has a rich history. Since day one, they are hand-in-hand, laying the foundations of awesome mobile application development.

Out of many platforms, Ionic tied the knot with the Angular opening the opportunities of-

● Developing the JavaScript portions of hybrid mobile apps with the help of AngularJS

● Easy front-end developments

● Widespread compatibility

● Extension of the HTML vocabulary

● UI Components using Directives and Services

Have a look at their growing popularity-

TypeScript compatibility

Ionic has also been updated to work with the latest TypeScript. This has made the application development faster and better. Plus, there will be benefits of-

● Ability to use async await in Ionic

● Support for mix-in classes

● Improve the build time

● Type checking in application

IonicPage Decorator

Ionic is always there for the developers to give convenience. The latest version is blessed with the IonicPage Decorator.

With this new feature, the developers will find it easy to -

● Set up lazy loading in their application

● Set the priority of lazy loading pages

● Customize the configuration for each individual page

Lazy Loading

This is another breakthrough for the Ionic developers. The goal of including this feature is to speed up the application-

● Minimizes start-up time of the application.

● Application consumes less memory because of on-demand loading.

● Unnecessary database SQL execution is avoided.

Full support for plugin development

With the latest Ionic 3.0, one can experiment and utilize more than 130 Ionic native plugins in the browser. The latest version is quite significant for plugin mocking and adds extensive support here.

Now, a little brief for those who don’t know what Ionic Framework is:

Before the emergence of Ionic, there was a big painful question-

“Why are we still coding for multiple platforms?”

This question was asked at a time when mobile applications have started to be the eye of the digital business. The entrepreneurs then had to turn their ideas into several applications for several platforms.

Ionic emerged as a big breather and a great alternative here. At a stroke, they resolved an array of problems linked to native platform-

● Proficiency in each platform required

● Entirely separate code bases

● Timely & expensive development

● Diminishing returns

● More Platforms. More Problems.

Besides offering the opportunity to write a single code base for an application compatible across platforms, the Ionic provides multiple edges-

● Native Focused.

● Modeled off of native SDKs.

● Built to work with Cordova

● Performance Obsessed.

● Hardware accelerated animations.

● Minimal DOM Manipulation

● Plain old CSS.

● Cohesive visual system.

● Clean and simple.

● Easy to customize.

● Stand-alone CSS (independent of Ionic’s JavaScript)

● Quickly create a project with starter templates

● Boilerplate app structure ready for customization

● Preconfigured tools: Gulp, Sass, Bower, etc.

● Start a local dev server with LiveReload

● Update Ionic Framework library files

● Build and run native apps

With all those perks, today Ionic is the world’s most popular cross-platform mobile development technology stack, powering fast growing startups to some of the biggest companies in the world.
