Linux Android App Quick-Start with Ionic

The Linux Tutorial Shows You Step-by-Step How-to Getting-Started with Ionic Android App Development on GNU/Linux Desktops.

Ionic is a powerful HTML5 SDK that helps you build native-feeling Mobile Apps using web technologies like HTML, CSS, and Javascript.

Ionic is focused mainly on the Look and Feel, and UI interaction of your app. Ionic simply fits in well in order to simplify one big part of your app: the Front End.

Ionic currently requires AngularJS in order to work at its full potential. While you can still use the CSS portion of the framework, you’ll miss out on powerful UI interactions, gestures, animations, and other things.
