Ok, so from reading previous posts and the guides, I get it-- Ionic is for building hybrid mobile apps with Cordova/Phonegap, not responsive websites.
Given that the desktop web app I’ll be building is almost surely based on AngularJS, it seems a tad silly to maintain two completely seperate code bases with a lot of identical code.
Also, part of my motivation for wanting to do a hybrid app in the first place is to rapidly deploy a mobile app + web app in an early stage start-up situation for the lowest cost possible by ideally writing just one set of code that runs everywhere. I assume many people drawn towards Ionic have similar motivations.
What have others done to reduce code duplication when deploying a web app and a hybrid Ionic app at the same time?
