Hey thanks a lot, glad you like it!
Yes you are right, I didn’t pay that much attention to advanced UI components. My main focus was on project structure and file naming conventions, and on a better gulp file (for production builds).
Indeed my focus was on providing stuff which Ionic’s starter apps are missing … they are just too simplistic to be useful as a starter for “real” apps.
There are some other improvements in there, the README gives a good overview.
I do have plans to add more features, for instance image manipulation (camera, cropping, upload to Amazon S3), stuff like that, functionality which people often need in their apps.
What I’d really like is some kind of “module” or “plugin” system so that you can easily drop in complete functional modules into an app (for instance let’s say an image manipulation and storage module).
However I’m rather busy with building some client apps so I can’t spend much time on the starter app right now.
Yes I know that resources list, it’s a great list indeed.
Something else I came across which looks very interesting is this project:
AllcountJS framework - build an Ionic app and backend in less than an hour
This is suitable for enterprisey-kind of apps with lots of data entry and forms and such.
If you’re focus is more on consumer or maybe even gaming then integrating Famo.us with Ionic might be interesting:
Just some random thoughts and stuff I came across on Ionic and improving/extending it.
