Hi, This project I’m working on started out as just a “normal” Vue web project, but now I’m also looking to go for Native apps. Didn’t really work out with vue-native, so now looking into Ionic.
For this project i already build quite some custom components or used a plugin (and styled it to my likings). For example i now have a:
- Date & Time picker
All of these are also available as Ionic UI components, and now I’m wondering if i should start using these over my own in this project. I’m Building for web (PWA), Android and iOS.
Why I’m not sure if i should the Ionic components:
- Will overwrite a lot of styles because we have our own custom design.
- Has to look mostly the same on all platforms
- How is the responsiveness? For desktop things might look different (for example: the modal component will look quite different on a big screen, and the menu should be on the left side instead of the bottom)
What do you guys think? What are things to think about when making this decision? Are there some “hidden” advantages when i switch to Ionic UI components over my custom components?
