With this book, you will learn hybrid mobile application development using Ionic. This book uses Cordova 5.0.0, Ionic CLI 1.5.0, and Ionic 1.0.0 to explain the concepts and build apps.
To begin with, the book helps you understand where Ionic fits in today's world. Then, you will dive deep into Ionic CSS components and Ionic-AngularJS directives and services. You will also examine theming Ionic apps using the built-in SCSS setup.
Next, you will learn to build an Ionic client for a secure REST API, where you will implement user authentication and token-based development. Cordova and ngCordova will be explored, and you will learn how you can integrate device-specific features such as a camera and Geolocation with an Ionic app. We will wrap up the book by building a messaging app, which deals with talking to Firebase (a real-time data store), as well as device features.
By the end of this book, you will be able to develop a hybrid mobile application from start to finish, and generate device-specific installers.
