Mobile App Development Guide – Intro

Disclaimer:I am following this guide provided by Ionic. Naturally, I will be replicating their instructions. I do not want to nor mean to make claim to the fundamental ideas and structure established in their guide, but rather expand upon them to describe issues that I faced, and how I overcame them. I am also hoping these posts function as another layer of clarity, clarifyingupon their instructions to help those that need assistance understand things a little better.


The main aim of this is to simply document the process, but hopefully it’ll help someone who gets stuck following the same path and stumbles across these articles.


As we will be developing apps for both Android and iOS we want to follow the easiest and most efficient method of doing so. After some research we have opted for the Ionic hybrid mobile development stack.  This is essentially:

  • Ionic: The mobile development framework
  • HTML5/CSS3: The core development language
  • Angular: A JavaScript frame for making things dynamic


HTML5 and CSS3 is no issue here and we have a lot of experience working with JavaScript and libraries such as jQuery – however Angular is relatively new ground.   I will document the whole process and provide links to any resources that may help you out if you’re also starting out with Ionic.
