About Ionic Framework

Ionic Framework 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. That means it is not a replacement for PhoneGap or your favorite Javascript framework. Instead, Ionic simply fits in well with these projects in order to simplify one big part of your app: the front end. We recommend reading Where does the Ionic Framework fit in? to get a good understanding of Ionic's goals.

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.

Ionic 1 is the stable version at the moment but Ionic 2 which is based on Angular 2, recently released, will also be released soon. Ionic 2 has overhauled nearly every part, from the way that users navigate through your pages, how we efficiently manage UI, to how we help you wield the true powers of the underlying device.
