Can I use Ionic as a server side process?

I am of the opinion that ionic is node based framework, hence can I use ionic framework as a server side process ?

No not really. It’s built on node because it’s modules to compile the source files and manage the project are from node. Ionic is not a back end framework at all, you would have to make your own node js API if you want that then have your ionic app communicate to it


Thanks for the info !

So ionic framework is a frontend framework even when I am using it to create a web portal,right ? I cannot use it as a server side process even for a web portal .
