Ionic Framework is an open source UI toolkit for building performant, high-quality mobile and desktop apps using web technologies (HTML, CSS, and JavaScript).

Ionic Framework is focused on the frontend user experience, or UI interaction of an app (controls, interactions, gestures, animations). It’s easy to learn, and integrates nicely with other libraries or frameworks, such as Angular, or can be used standalone without a frontend framework using a simple script include.

Currently, Ionic Framework has official integration with Angular, but support for Vue and React are in development. If you’d like to learn more about Ionic Framework before diving in, we created a video to walk you through the basics.

Goals
Cross-platform
Build and deploy apps that work across multiple platforms, such as native iOS, Android, desktop, and the web as a Progressive Web App – all with one code base. Write once, run anywhere.

Web Standards-based
Ionic Framework is built on top of reliable, standardized web technologies: HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, using modern Web APIs such as Custom Elements and Shadow DOM. Because of this, Ionic components have a stable API, and aren’t at the whim of a single platform vendor.

Beautiful Design
Clean, simple, and functional. Ionic Framework is designed to work and display beautifully out-of-the-box across all platforms. Start with pre-designed components, typography, interactive paradigms, and a gorgeous (yet extensible) base theme.

Simplicity
Ionic Framework is built with simplicity in mind, so that creating Ionic apps is enjoyable, easy to learn, and accessible to just about anyone with web development skills.
