Appery.io App Builder for Ionic

What

Gone are the days where you can afford to take months to build an enterprise mobile app. In today’s fast market, you need to be able to prototype the app in a few days, release the first version in a few weeks, get feedback, fix bugs, release the second version. Repeat.

In this session you will learn how to rapidly build a mobile app with AngularJS and Ionic connected to cloud APIs using Appery.io cloud platform.

Tutorial: Building a Todo Mobile App with Ionic, Angular, Appery.io Visual App Builder and Database

For years, developers had to make a choice: build a single hybrid app with a so-so user experience, or build a native app for each platform with a great user experience. Developers don’t have to make this choice anymore. By integrating the Ionic SDK into Appery.io, developers can build enterprise HTML5/hybrid apps on a single code base that offer a native experience across all platforms. The Appery.io platform’s visual tooling lowers the skills barrier, empowering a broader base of developers and business analysts to create effective and intuitive mobile applications.

In this tutorial, you will use the Appery.io platform to build a mobile app. The tool set includes:

  • Ionic – native-like UI components
  • AngularJS – UI logic/binding
  • Appery.io App Builder – cloud-based drag and drop designer
  • Appery.io Backend Services – API backend for the app

What are you building?

You are going to build a todo app. The app will have two pages. On the first page, you will be able to see a list of all tasks and also mark a task complete (delete it). On the second page, you will be able to create a new task. You can see how the app looks below. The first page lists all the tasks. You can also mark a task completed (delete it). On the second page you can add a new task.

The Hybrid vs. Native Question Answered: Appery.io + Ionic

 

ionic_logo1

The debate between developing hybrid vs. native apps has been going on for a long time, and while it’s sure to continue long into the future, the argument for the hybrid model is getting stronger every day.

Making the Switch

Some of the topmost brands have recently ditched native and gone hybrid. With hybrid frameworks like Ionic and Apache Cordova (PhoneGap) becoming more mature, the assumption that a native app performs better is outdated.

In fact, the trend towards HTML5 and hybrid apps is stronger than ever; a recent Gartner report says that 90% of all Enterprise apps will be HTML5 or Hybrid by the end of this year.

Appery.io to Developers: Happy Xmas, the HTML5 vs. Native War Is Over

Great article by Adrian Bridgwater on Apepry.io adding support for Ionic Framework and low code platforms.

While ‘low code’ platforms are often thought to enjoy a lower level of serious interest from the hardcore developer community (yes, even in the face of a popularised visual based coding practices), Appery.io’s ability to use Apache Cordova and provide access to more native device capabilities is good news, as is the firm’s total combination of software application development tools, backend services (there are plug ins too) and its ability to bring forward template (or you could say ‘predefined’) integration options with other third party services. Did we mention visual data binding too? No – ok, well that’s in there too. The SDK integration here with Ionic may not quite be the one-for-all programming panacea that it is being positioned to be, but Salesforce is a fan and this company is growing in stature. If it can reign in the big claims and keep its code base stable, things could stay interesting.
