You can share this PDF with anyone you feel could benefit from it, is extracted from Stack Overflow Documentation, which is written by many . A Cross-platform mobile application development framework using Angular JS and .
Open your terminal or command-line, and navigate to a directory where you would like to create your first Cordova project. To bootstrap an application, type in the following command: cordova create toptal toptal. The subcommand is invoked with three additional parameters: The folder where the application will be placed, the namespace of the application, and its display name. This is where you will place your application code which is common for all platforms. While Cordova allows you to easily develop an app for different platforms, sometimes you need to add customizations. At this point you can also open up the config.
What we have learned so far: Define custom routing for our app using AngularJS ui-route Change the layout of our views using HTML Step 3 - Speakers Layout This step corresponds with this commit e and represents the starting point of this step. Please checkout this commit so we are all on the same page: git checkout e In this step we are going to work on the layout of the speakers view. Ionic avatar list or thumbnails list may be good options, but I think Ionic cards are the best choice for this view because we can fit all the information we have within one clean component.
The final point of this step is this commit fb Run git checkout fb and you will see the implementation of the instructions above. If you want to see more details of what we have done, take a look at this comparison between the initial commit e and the final commit fb of this step. What we have learned so far: Explore Ionic components Compose different components to get the UI we want Step 4 - Venue Layout This step corresponds with this commit fb and represents the starting point of this step.
Please checkout this commit so we are all on the same page: git checkout fb In this step, we are going to work on the layout of the venue view.
We can easily reuse any angular map directive and it will work like a charm. Angularjs-Google-Maps will do the trick.
We just need to add the dependency using bower: bower install ngmap --save The final point of this step is this commit 7bfcf Run git checkout -f 7bfcf29 and you will see the implementation of the instructions above. If you want to see more details of what we have done, take a look at this comparison between the initial commit fb and the final commit 7bfcf29 of this step. What we have learned so far: Use the web stack to build mobile apps Reuse AngularJS directives in our app Step 5 - Agenda Layout This step corresponds with this commit 7bfcf29 and represents the starting point of this step.
Please checkout this commit so we are all on the same page: git checkout -f 7bfcf29 In this step we are going to work on the layout of the agenda view. The final point of this step is this commit 9dd7. Run git checkout 9dd7 and you will see the implementation of the instructions above.
If you want to see more details of what we have done, take a look at this comparison between the initial commit 7bfcf29 and the final commit 9dd7 of this step. What we have learned so far: Use advanced components such as tabs for our mobile app layout Step 6 - AngularJS data access This step corresponds with this commit 9dd7 and represents the starting point of this step.
Please checkout this commit so we are all on the same page: git checkout 9dd7 In this step, we are going to remove all hard coded data and replace it with data we get from our data source in this case, a simple JSON. We are going to: Define the structure and set all the data of the agenda.
We are going to use underscore. In this case, we are using two JSON files as data sources, but you could easily use any other backend. The way many apps communicate with backend is through an API. Having that in mind, in my opinion, you have three alternatives here: You can use the almighty WordPress as your backend WordPress is very flexible and you can use it in many ways, as a blog, a cms, or ecommerce using woocommerce, for example , etc.
While these advances have been incredible, they are only just starting to affect the clear platform of the future: mobile. There were also some very public failures -- Facebook famously wrote their first iOS app in using HTML5 but ended up scrapping it due to terrible performance. For years now, hybrid apps have been mocked and jeered by native app developers for being clunky and ugly, having subpar performance, and having no advantages over native apps. While these may have been valid reasons in , they are now virtually baseless, thanks to a collection of new technologies that have emerged over the past two years.
Let's learn what the new mobile stack consists of and how it works. Introducing Ionic. Before, building hybrid apps was a chore -- not because it was hard to build web pages, but because it was hard to build full-fledged web applications.
With AngularJS, that has changed. As a result, Angular became the core innovation that made hybrid apps possible.
The bright folks at Drifty were some of the first to realize this and subsequently created the Ionic Framework to bridge the gap between AngularJS web apps and hybrid mobile apps.
Since launching a little over a year ago, the Ionic Framework has quickly grown in popularity amongst developers and their main Github repo has over 13K stars as of this writing. Core mobile UI paradigms are available to developers out of the box, which means that developers can focus on building apps, instead of common user interface elements.
Some examples of these include list views , stateful navigation , tab bars , action sheets , and so much more. Ionic is a great solution for creating both mobile web apps and native apps. The first sections of this course will go over structuring Ionic apps that can run on the web. Then we will cover packaging that same exact code into a native app. We will be using a build tool called Cordova for packaging our app.
For those unfamiliar with Cordova, it is the open source core of Adobe's proprietary PhoneGap build system. Basically, PhoneGap is Cordova plus a whole bunch of other Adobe stuff. The folks at Ionic have done a fantastic job of making Cordova super easy to use by directly wrapping it in their 'ionic' command line tool don't worry, we'll cover this later.
Just remember that Cordova is something that is running under the hood of your hybrid app that you will rarely need to worry about, but we will cover some common interactions with it in this course.
What we're going to build We will be building an app called Songhop, a "Tinder for music" app that allows you to listen to second song samples and favorite the ones you like.
You can also see a live demo of the completed application we'll be building here resize your browser window to the size of a phone for the best experience. It's best to have either a Linux based OS or Mac to complete this tutorial.
While it's certainly possible to develop on Windows, we won't be covering the specifics of running, debugging, and troubleshooting for Windows based systems. Recommendations for completing this course We have structured this course to accommodate folks who are interested in Ionic for building mobile websites as well as those who are interested in building hybrid apps.
Throughout this course, links to additional concepts and information will be included. You can use these links as supplementary material that can help you gain insight into the stack and its various components. As always, if you have any questions, Google and Stackoverflow are your best bet, but if you're unsure about something specific to this course, feel free to tweet me ericsimons We're firm believers in actually writing code while learning a new language or framework. Starting our project When you want to start a new Ionic project , typically all you need to do is run ionic start myApp blank, and it will scaffold a new application for you.
Now that we have the Songhop project downloaded to our computer, let's get it running in our browser! To do this, we will use the Ionic CLI's command 'serve'. This command starts a local web server with live reload enabled, then opens your browser directly to your application.
As you develop your app, it will automatically refresh your web browser every time you save a file. If all went well, you should be seeing this in your browser window be sure to resize your browser to be about the size of a phone, or use your browser's phone emulation tools : The guts of an Ionic application When you scaffold a new application using the Ionic CLI, it automatically creates a handful of files to be used as the baseboard for your hybrid app development.
This post walks through all of these files and what purposes they serve. At this point, you might be wondering, how do we tell an ion-nav-view which templates to display? You may have noticed that our tab.
This allows us to programmatically display our templates into a specified tab, with the added benefit of each tab having its own navigation history. Finally, let's take a look at the templates of our Discover and Favorites pages. You'll notice that both pages are wrapped in an ion-view for navigation and header bar purposes, and then an ion-content where we place all of our content.
We've used a couple of Ionic's CSS Components and AngularJS Extensions in this base application, and we strongly recommend checking out other components and extensions that Ionic can do out of the box. Now that we've explored our base application structure and how everything is wired together, lets start building out the functionality our application! Building interface functionality Lets start with our main interface, "Discover", where the user will be presented with songs to "favorite" or "skip".
