The Ionic Framework supports a variety of mobile platforms. Throughout this book, I will cover the important aspects of development with Ionic and React, going from the initial idea all the way to the Apple App and Google Play Stores.
How the Book is Structured
This book is a consolidation of a three-volume series that can be purchased individually. It is available here as a single complete volume.
Part 1: Building the UI
This will cover the absolute basics: I will show you how to build a simple Ionic application. I will cover the application structure, explaining how an Ionic application is laid out. Next I will introduce some of Ionic’s more useful UI components and create a basic side-menu for the demo application.
Part 2: Dealing with Data
Once the basic user interface is complete, it is time to work with data. How will the application accept, validate, and store user-provided input? This book will answer those questions.
When the application functionality is completed, it still needs to be available to its potential users. The final section of this book will be a discussion around various hosting options. You will deploy the application as a Progressive Web Application, which can then be installed on any modern mobile device.
Part 3: Devices and Deployment
Sometimes, you need true hardware integration and installation. In this book, you will work with Capacitor, Ionic’s solution for interfacing with the mobile hardware.
The book will conclude by explaining and demonstrating how to prepare, build, and deploy the finished application to both the Apple and Google Play Stores.
Unlike many books that spend a lot of time on background, this one is designed to be fast paced, with a minimum of fuss and fluff. It is all hands-on.
What Do You Need to Know?
I do not expect you to have ever used React or the Ionic Framework, but it certainly will not hurt you if you have. I should make clear that this is not a book on React. While I will point out basic aspects of React as they pertain to Ionic, I will not go any deeper than I must to make the demo application work.
Concepts will be explained as needed, as close to their use as I can get.
What Will You Learn?
By the time you complete the series, you should have the confidence you need to create and deploy your own mobile app for iOS or Android.
It will be a fast ride, so hang on.
This book is a work in progress. I am offering it early in the hopes that it will help you get a jump on your Ionic-React projects. As new content is completed, it will be added to the book, and a new version will be released. All purchasers of this book will of course be able to download the new versions free of charge.
