Create mobile apps with the web technologies you love.

Free and open source, Ionic offers a library of mobile-optimized HTML, CSS and JS components and tools for building highly interactive native and progressive web apps. Built with Sass, optimized for AngularJS.

Performance obsessed

Speed is important. So important that you only notice when it isn't there. Ionic is built to perform and behave great on the latest mobile devices. Designed with web application best practices like efficient virtual DOM rendering, hardware accelerated transitions, and touch-optimized gestures, one thing is for sure: You'll be impressed.

Angular & Ionic

A match made in heaven. Ionic builds on top of Angular to create a powerful SDK well-suited for building rich and robust mobile apps for the app store and the mobile web. Ionic not only looks nice, but its core architecture is built for serious app development.

Native focused

Ionic is modeled off of standard native mobile development SDKs, bringing the UI standards of native apps together with the full power and flexibility of the open web. Ionic runs inside Cordova or Phonegap to deploy natively, or as a Progressive Web App. Develop once, deploy everywhere.

Beautifully designed

Clean, simple, and functional. Ionic has been designed to work and display beautifully on all current mobile devices and platforms. With ready-made mobile components, typography, and a gorgeous (yet extensible) base theme that adapts to each platform, you'll be building in style.

A powerful CLI

Use just one command to create, build, test, and deploy your Ionic apps onto any platform. With amazing features like Live Reload and integrated logging, you'll already be miles ahead of your native frenemies. Just run npm install -g ionic, and you're good to go!

Easy to learn

All you need to know are HTML, CSS, and JavaScript: the building blocks of the web. You'll even learn AngularJS as you work. We wrote tons of docs to get you started and help you level up your mobile development skills. There’s no question you'll be shipping apps in no time.

Built by web nerds

Built and maintained by developers and designers passionate about web technologies. Ionic focuses on pushing the web forward across all mobile devices. We're making mobile development with HTML5 awesome.

More than code. Ionic is an ecosystem.

You'll find a suite of mobile development tools and resources at your disposal that make
Ionic the complete mobile dev package. It's the best way to build apps. Period.

Ionic is the framework that I use for all of my projects, and I'm not sure I can give a bigger compliment than that. The innate sense of style and sophistication built into Ionic is awesome and makes building professional-level mobile applications a snap.

Ionic will dramatically change the way mobile apps are built. Their choice of AngularJS means building functionality is now a breeze and it feels near-native. Your developers and your users will thank you.

I was so inspired when I found Ionic. It fills a gap that’s missing when building for mobile and solves many complexities that otherwise require multiple libraries, keeping your code cleaner. Overall, it just makes mobile development fun and fast, so you can build more!
