I would like to make a real live application using Ionic2. Naturally I will need a back end to handle authentication, sessions, etc.
I would like to use a single codebase so I am guessing I need to use Express.js.
Is there a tutorial somewhere that describes this? Surprisingly I cannot find anything that is real clear. I assume we will need a Grunt or Gulp tool to build? A boilerplate project in GitHub would be helpful. Thanks for any guidance!
