Ionic Framework Evolves to Include React and Vue

With the latest release Ionic Framework 4.0 has evolved and will now work with other frameworks. From being an Angular-only framework Ionic can now work with React JavaScript and Vue JavaScript as well as being highly suited to working with Angular. It has now become a UI design system that can be used generally for app making and development.

Ionic Framework Started as Ionic for Angular

At its inception Ionic used AngularJS to build components in JavaScript which could be dispersed as HTML tags. When AngularJS evolved to Angular, Ionic was also included however since then new tools such as React and Vue were developed and have become increasingly popular. However, Ionic needed Angular and could not be used in these new tools.

The builders of Ionic have responded by ensuring that the framework can now be distributed as web components using custom elements and Shadow DOM APIs which are available in most of the modern mobile and desktops browsers. Developers can now use Ionic components in areas like mobile, desktop and web apps and still use Ionic. In additional, to increase stability, Ionic targets standard web and not third-party APIs.

Ionic’s Web Components

There are almost 100 components in Ionic and they have been well evaluation for customizability, design, performance and their look and feel on various platforms. The components now match all of the standards for iOS and Android having been rebuilt and refreshed using Stencil, Ionic’s own Web component compiler.
