    I love building apps with Ionic and Capacitor because you can build UI that looks amazing, all with web technologies and a little plugin magic. As a user, I would never know this wasn’t a “native” app.

    Your care and attention to detail shows in @Ionicframework components. And your commitment to interoperability with frameworks is 💯

    There are many options to build cross-platform apps. Still, the approach of @Ionicframework using web components, css variables, multi framework support, and now a straightforward integration with native code using Portals it's pretty impressive.

    You won't totally appreciate the work that the @Ionicframework team has done until you have read the entire docs. Such an amazing tool they have built

    Ionic is awesome! Building cross-platform apps has always been amazing with Ionic (and Capacitor) but Vue being Vue, it's of course super smooth and straightforward.

    One of the devs on my team added a fantastic dark mode to our new @Ionicframework app in less than a day of work. Absolutely insane how productive you can be in Ionic! Let's just say that adding dark mode to our native iOS app took a lot longer than a day.

    It took me 50 minutes to realize how useful is @Ionicframework for building web, android & ios with @reactjsfrom a single code source (easier than React Native and React for Web) just listening to this podcast. Just WOW 😍

    Finally used Ionic to build an app, and wow- this is so much fun. Building with Vue, (they have React and Angular too) and it deploys on Web, iOS, and Android? I’m having delusions of app grandeur.

  • Parham twitter profile image



    When a mobile app is successful, often the client asks us to build a web version so it's more accessible. Building with @Ionicframework and @capacitorjs has saved our clients and us a lot of time and money by enabling us to transform into a webapp with minimal effort.
