Why Ionic Framework is Leading Cross-Platform Development Stack

Ionic Framework is a mobile app stack that let web developers build apps for all major app stores and the web with a single code base. At the same time, your app looks and feels awesome on every device, Isn't that great?
In fact , All you need to know is Angular, JavaScript, Typescript and HTML5.
Arguably, All these are things you can learn through a normal weekend if your'e a newbie.
Above all, Ionic Framework makes it easy for web developers to build mobile and web apps for Android, Windows, IOS, Electron and Browser without stress.
Why Ionic Framework is Leading Cross-Platform Development Stack
No doubt, Hybrid mobile apps also know as Cross-Platform mobile apps are not performing the same as Native mobile apps but it's closer than you can imagine.
Presently, According to recent survey nearly 80% of developers building mobile apps identify as web developers, Which is what leads us to our first point.

Ionic Framework Technologies

No doubt, Ionic stack contributes a lot to what make it the leading cross platform development stack.
Firstly, Angular is currently the most popular JavaScript framework among web developers.
Secondly, Typescript is a widely know type superset of JavaScript and it's growing fast.
In Addition, Material Design makes Ionic User Interface look good making your app look the same across all platforms.
In fact, Ionic Team create their own version of Material Design called Ionic Material for faster User Experience.

Ionic Framework Components 

Actually, Ionic apps are made of high-level building blocks called components, Components make Ionic learning curve easier and faster.
Even so, Components allow you to quickly construct an interface for your app. i.e Tabs, modals, popups, Virtual Scroll and cards.  It's very easy to learn Ionic if you have web development skill, For a newbie Ionic is simple to learn.
As a result, Ionic apps look clean, simple, and functional, It displays beautifully on all current mobile devices and platforms.

Supported Platforms ( Android, iOS & Windows ) 

In my opinion, Platform support contributes a lot to widely usage of Ionic Stack.
Ionic uses Cordova or Phonegap to deploy natively, or runs in the browser as a Progressive Web App.
Therefore, Ionic apps can be build to Android, iOS, Windows, Browser and Electron.

Developers and Community Support ( GitHub, Ionic Forum, StackOverflow )

In fact , As at the time of writing Ionic has 32106 Stars and 9304 Forks on Ionic Github Repo with thousand of questions on Ionic Support Forum  with different answers, Ionic Framework has evolve a lot/
No doubt, The great Support Forum contributes to wide usage of the Framework because i'ts growing.
As a result, Most of the question receive fast response and community members are always there to help out their fellow developers.

Native Plugins and Custom Components

Ionic Native is a TypeScript wrapper for Cordova/PhoneGap plugins that make adding any native functionality needed to Ionic mobile app.
No doubt, Plugin make it easy for developers to access native API on Hybrid apps.
Presently, Ionic has more than 50 plugins  e.g SQLite, Toast, Vibration, Geo Location, Firebase, Push Notification  and more.
Furthermore, Ionic has a lot of custom component built by developers to help create views that are not available in Ionic component doc.
In conclusion, Ionic is an incredible tool in right hands, It an awesome Framework to work with.
In addition,With my years of experience in mobile application development, A Framework like Ionic is hard to come by.
Ionic just do it better than others, Ionic make a newbie build like a professional with little time to spend.
