Anyone helps me with the modals and a JSON?

I’m quite a newbie into IONIC and i need some help with a bit of code.

I want to do something similar to this plugin but i think than it’s no longer available or is deprecated:

I have a JSON something like this (an array with multiple objects): 
{"status":"OK","items":[{"id":435,"name":"Tokyo}, {"id":685,"name":"Tokyo"},{"id":766,"name":"Barcelona"}]}

My idea it’s create a modal who can search in this JSON and bring the selection into an disabled field the name and use the ID value in a form. I don’t know if this kind of questions are good to be asked here (this isn’t stackoverflow).

Thanks for help and for IONIC, it’s an magical environment
