Introducing Ionic By Component

06 December 2016 / By Sani

So to inaugurate my blog, I will be writing a series of tutorials under the title, Ionic By Component. So what is this new series all about and what is the reasoning behind it. So in case you do not know, I'm a super huge Ionic Framework lover. I love Ionic because it ties in well with my philosophy of efficiency and also due to its closeness of the web. With Ionic, you can use normal web technologies like HTML, CSS & JS to build beautiful cross-platform mobile applications for IOS, Android & Windows. Ionic provides you with some great component modeled off the native SDK components that look and feel like proper IOS & Android style components with HTML. Ionic is also built on tip of the Angular framework which means you have all the power of Angular available to you.I also believe Ionic is one of those technologies that will push for web standards to get better and better as time goes on.

Ionic By Component?

Okay so Hybrid apps have suffered from a very negative and false bad reputation over the years. Ionic went a long way to prove that the Hybrid approach is still much valid and is here to say. However, I still think the major reason why the notorious bad reputation hybrid frameworks have is due to people not using the tool properly. The one thing you will learn when developing Hybrid apps is it does require you to be aware of some extra tips & tricks that you need to adhere to for you app to be fully optimized and not give our some very surprising behavior.

This very feat is the chief driver for the Ionic By Component series. It is a series where I will be covering components of the Ionic framework and show you how you can use them to create beautiful features for your Ionic app. I will also be showing you some neat tricks you probably did not know existed and more importantly, I will also be showing you the dos & don't of each component. For some posts, I will push some Github link with a live app hosted to show you just how the end product looks.

Frequency & Plan

I will aim to release 3 blogs per month at a 10-day interval between posts. I will be taking feedback on my twitter @saniyusuf on what I should write about next. Feel free to tweet me with your feedback. Stay tuned for the inaugural post which will be about the Ionic Navigation page lifecycle.
