A few months ago, we wrote about the release of Chrome 70, its slew of new features, and what this update meant for the future progressive web apps (PWAs). To quickly recap, Chrome 70’s release allowed PWAs to be installed on a user’s device via the browser, much like a native app with new features […]
Getting ready to kick off your next mobile application project and not sure whether to build a native mobile app or a Progressive Web App? This guide is for you! At Ionic, we are fans of both traditional mobile apps (the kind you download from the app stores and install on your device) and Progressive […]
When it comes to choosing a cross-platform development approach, it can be difficult to know where to begin. Frequently, we’re asked by teams who are comparing frameworks to explain how Ionic stacks up against React Native, Xamarin, and others in our space. Often, the expectation is that all of these frameworks work similarly and the […]
Few things in the frontend world are as hot as Design Systems, the idea of building a design spec or library of reusable components that can be shared across a team or company. Design Systems enforce style and branding guidelines, reduce design fatigue for engineers, and consolidate component engineering to one single set of components […]

Earlier this week, many Android/Google/Firebase libraries were unpublished from JCenter, causing any builds that depended on these libraries to fail across the board. This impacted a number of community members and Ionic users. But, thanks to the quick efforts of our team, anyone using Ionic Appflow was safeguarded. We were able to find a workaround […]
Last week, the web community was shocked to hear rumors that Microsoft’s Edge Browser would be adopting a new engine based on Chromium. Though just rumors at first, Microsoft has come forward and confirmed that it is indeed going to be rebuilding Edge with Chromium.
Something we don’t talk enough about at Ionic is how important it is that Ionic is 100% focused on standard web technology. Some thoughts on why that matters: There are so many cross-platform mobile toolkits out there today. Ionic is the only major one focused on standard web technology and mobile + desktop + PWA. […]
👋 if you’re new here, Capacitor is the latest project from the team behind Ionic Framework that provides an abstraction on top of Native SDKs so you can write modern web apps and access any Native SDK through a cross-platform, portable layer. Capacitor apps work on iOS, Android, Electron, and the web as a PWA.
Last week, we gave the first official preview of Vue support for Ionic Framework at VueConf Toronto. Our very own Josh Thomas (@jthoms1) shared some insight into the first alpha release of @ionic/vue and why we think Vue + Ionic Framework makes a perfect match for developers. But before we dive into the nitty-gritty of […]
