Hello, I am a college student and recently I was given an assignment to research a new technology and I picked Ionic. It looks great so far but I am having a bit of trouble when it comes to the structure. I have experience with REST, express, mongo, mysql etc, so I am not a (complete) newbie but still struggling! I want to make an app based on the ‘tabs’ starter app and connect it to a mysql db via REST and Node. Would anyone be able to help me with the structure that I would have to put in place based on the tabs starter?
For example, how would I implement express, how do I take care of routing? Do I need to create a server.js file? What should go in there? I am just a bit lost and would love some help, or if there was a tutorial that anyone knows of (I have searched a good bit) that deals with creating an ionic app first and then building some database connectivity on top of it, I dont want to to through a service backend like Firebase, I want to learn how to do it all myself!
Thanks very much!
