Ionic Framework is a powerful and popular option for developing cross-platform mobile applications. In this article, we’ll walk you through a step-by-step guide to creating a simple mobile app using Ionic Framework.
Before getting started, you’ll need to have the following prerequisites installed:
- Node.js and NPM: You can download and install Node.js and NPM from the official website.
- Ionic CLI: You can install Ionic CLI using the following command:
npm install -g @ionic/cli
Step 1: Create a New Ionic Project
The first step is to create a new Ionic project using the following command:
ionic start myApp tabs --type=angular
This command will create a new Ionic project with the name “myApp” and the “tabs” template. We’re also specifying that we want to use Angular as the framework for our project.
Step 2: Add a New Page
The “tabs” template comes with three pages by default. Let’s add a new page to our app by running the following command:
ionic generate page about
This command will generate a new page called “about” in our app.
Step 3: Add Content to the About Page
Now that we have a new page, let’s add some content to it. Open the about.page.html file located in the src/app/about directory:
And add the following content:
This code will create a simple card with some text that will be displayed on the About page.
Step 4: Update the Tabs Navigation
Since we added a new page to our app, we need to update the navigation in the tabs. Open the tabs.page.html file located in the src/app/tabs directory:
And update it as follows:
This code will add a new tab button for the “about” page.
Step 5: Run the App
Now that we’ve made our changes, we can run the app in the browser using the following command:
This command will compile and start our app in the default browser. You should see the “Home”, “List”, and “About” tabs in the app.
