App Development posts
Build and publish a Ionic application These are the posts about how I implemented a Ionic framework application (v1). There are all under the category App development of my blog.
The icon is the first presentation of your app and maybe a bad design or a not so nice icon can make the user refuse to install your app. You should try to give a professional and nice presentation to, at least, avoid get the user away only at the first glance.
We wanted to create a kind of live update of the Firebase backend while the users were using the app avoiding to put Save button actions in order to save. The idea is to keep the backend updated while the user is creating or updating any element, these are ToDo items and Categories elements, in our application. So we needed to implement a system with the help of the library Angularfire and the $watch AngularJs function to make it happen.
Ionic provide you a framework to quickly implement with your web development skills a nice native application. Although, not everything is provided in the framework and if you want to get native features working with your application you will need to add some Cordova plugins to your project.
As we can create components like controllers, factories and services with code that can be reused in many parts of an AngularJs application, you could do the same by creating directives as reusable parts of code that applies to the HTML elements.
In any application sometimes you need to share some code or common functionalities among the components of the application. One way to do it is using a services pattern. In AngularJs Applications there are three ways to create them: services and factories.
