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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!

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!
