Angular focused web app guy here who has a client that started off wanting a web app but now is interested in mobile apps as well. This is because I can not perform credit card swipes via a web app. Most likely I will be referring them to a mobile expert but saw Ionic and have a couple questions.
I understand that I can separate my api and have the web app/mobiles apps both call it. However, I am interested in using CardFlight which is a credit card swiping (payment) solution that integrates well with Stripe.
So I guess my question is how would that interact with Ionic in terms of a backend? The CardFlight SDK has one version for iOS and one for Android. Does that mean I would still need to make separate native backends for each app? Should that be the case how does "merging’/“reusing” the front end created in Ionic come into play?
I guess I am trying to avoid being hacky here and only want to use Ionic if it is solving an issue in my current situation rather than making it more complicated. What are your opinions?
Thank you tremendously for your help ahead of time!
