Build and publish a Ionic App – Views and routes

When we generate the application using the Ionic CLI it generates the application structure to manage three tabs Dash, Chats and Account. Angular provides a main module as the core framework and the additional required functionalities are added via modules like the URL mapping and routing. In the app skeleton generated each one of the tabs is considered a view or a state (actually that are substates of a tab state) and each one is related to an URL.

Until now, I was blogging using Ghost platform over Openshift. I love the way you develop new features over the Ghost platform: Handlebars for the templating, an easy API to get information about the blog and their posts... and you are using the Node.js on the backend so you're feeling a little bit hipster while you're using it.
