Free and open source, Ionic offers a library of mobile-optimized HTML, CSS and JS CSS components, gestures, and tools for building highly interactive apps. Built with Sass and 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. With minimal DOM manipulation, zero jQuery, and hardware accelerated transitions, one thing is for sure: You'll be impressed.
A match made in heaven. Ionic utilizes Angular in order to create a powerful SDK most suited to develop rich and robust applications. Ionic not only looks nice, but its core architecture is built for serious app development, and Angular ties in perfectly.
Ionic is modeled on popular native mobile development SDKs, making it easy to understand for anyone that has built a native app for iOS or Android. Just drop it in your code to get going, and push through Cordova when it's ready. Develop once, deploy everywhere.
Clean, simple, and functional. Ionic has been designed to work and display beautifully on all current mobile devices. With tons of popular mobile components, typography, interactive paradigms, and a gorgeous (yet extensible) base theme, you'll wonder how you lived without it.
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!
Built and maintained by developers and designers passionate about web technologies. Ionic focuses on standards compliant code, is forward thinking, and is managed through Github. We're making mobile development with HTML5 awesome and simple.

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!
