Hey! Thank you for your fast response!
Some of my questions were not clear enough, I do apologize.
I get what stencil is and while it is not a framework, it is a way to organize your code in components. The way things are organized inside a stencil project, and how you code, makes 100x more sense to me (a complete newbie), than any of the frameworks I have tried. Also the ability to use all the knowledge from web coding is usefull since there are 100x more tutorials on that.
So recently I tried:
-using stencil app starter and while fun, it does not build for me even when only cloning from github. That made me worried:)
-so i tried ionic-pwa-toolkit which did build and I made a working example pwa test and learn from
-so now I discovered ionic dashboard and followed the instructions and boy does creating a project with that look and feel super slick. And the android app DEVAPP, lets me test it all in seconds…
The only problem is… the project type generated is angular (somewhere it was written this is only temp). The styling is in scss while I want to use css, and the project has a different structure.
I would like to know if that last workflow, so generating components using ionic create component and using dev app for testing and so forth… is planned or am I waiting on something that is not planned.
I have read much of the documentation but I am still missing a big part of the picture.
My ideal workflow would be.
-create a project with ionicdashboard friendlines
-use ionic CLI to generate new content and code logic in typescript
-use CSS for styling
-use devapp to test
It is a handfull yes but one can dream:)
Also I get ionic 4, stencil and capacitator are all in beta and i could swear I saw a info page that said most of this would be possible but since I tried 3 things and would like the best possible mix of these, I came here for some sort of confirmation.
All in all, I will keep using ionic, if not for native apps, then 100% for PWA dev, but its nice to have options!
And thank you for your effort before and in advance.
