Anyone have any experience integrating Ionic with GoInstant (http://www.goinstant.com)? GI is a neat service that also has AngularJS integrated in it, and offers lots of handy services, components, and widgets. A little bit of Firebase and Parse - easy ways to persist data acoss multiple simultaneous users/connections - in real time.
I’m considering using Ionic for a collaborative mobile app. Originally i was thinking of basing it on a MEAN stack, but from reading the comments here, this doesn’t sound like a great idea. I suppose it’s easy enough to add MongoDB and Node.js as server-side elements and build a REST API for these. Having Bootstrap integrated would also be a big plus. And of course PhoneGap | Cordova | Trigger.io, with which Ionic interoperates well.
But, GoInstant has many of the same real-time, synched data-persistence features as Parse and Firebase, as well as easy-to-use authentication componentry and other widgets (like chat), so it’d be great if it were possible to use GI with Ionic. And thus my question - whether anyone has tried this, or whether anyone can foresee difficulties trying to do this.
Thanks a lot!
