Choosing a Framework - Why Ionic?

Hello! I’m looking to get into building mobile apps. Since I’m already a web developer, I’m figuring that a good JS framework is the way to go. However, There are so many pieces out there!

When I think of what I want out a framework, I’d say the community is probably the most important piece for me. If there’s a good community out there ready and happy to help out newcomers, than that’s probably the place for me.

So I was hoping I could hear from some of you as to why you chose Ionic, and what you think of the community here.

Thank you for your help!
