Couchbase Lite is a full-featured NoSQL database that runs locally on mobile devices. The Offline Storage plugin, built and maintained by Ionic as part of Ionic Native, makes it easy to take advantage of the Couchbase Lite database to create your application using an offline-first architecture. This allows you to offer your users a fast […]
Last week, I had the privilege to speak at the second VueConf USA in sunny Tampa, Florida. On behalf of the whole Ionic team, I was really excited to present a full talk and also get to know more members of the Vue community. And, with all of the excitement around Vue and VueConf, we […]
In case you missed it, last week we offered a live walkthrough of Ionic Enterprise Edition, the premier and supported version of everything you need to build native-powered apps with Ionic. During that discussion, Ionic’s IEE Product Manager, Matt Kremer, and I dug into the top challenges that enterprise development teams face when building mission-critical […]
We’re thrilled to have recently announced the release of Ionic’s fourth major version, and its ability to work across all frameworks (or with no framework at all). We’ve been overwhelmed with the positive feedback, and so far 4.0 has exceeded our expectations of what’s been possible with a rewrite. So, with the official Ionic Framework […]
We’re thrilled to announce that the release candidate for Ionic 4.0 (codenamed “Neutronium”) has shipped! This release brings many performance improvements and bug fixes for issues in our alpha and beta releases, along with (and most importantly) stabilizing the API and paving the way for the final version of 4.0, expected in early 2019.

Time, people, money, and maybe even your reputation. Choosing one development approach over another is not just about your personal preference–it’s about risk. When considering Ionic for a […]
If you’re building apps in an enterprise environment, you’ve probably experienced the growing divide between the number of mobile use cases identified for development, and the capacity of the development team to deliver. Some teams have as many as 50-60 apps waiting for development. Of course, a big selling point of Ionic is that we […]
Like most dev teams, you’re probably on some form of an agile cadence, releasing working versions of your code every 1-2 weeks. In fact, most teams have it down pretty well by now: Backlog grooming, thorough sprint planning, velocity reviews and retros—the whole nine yards. But, how often are you actually shipping these updates to […]
