I have been on a bit of a hybrid mobile app journey for a while now, starting back last year building one using Kendo UI and their mobile framework, and then switching to just using AngularJS and realizing I needed a mobile framework to do some heavy lifting. Ionic looks great and from the sample apps I’ve tried out, it’s fantastic.
I was wondering if anyone has managed to take an existing ionic project, and use Telerik’s AppBuilder so they could develop iOS apps on a windows machine? I’ve been banging my head on my desk for a day or two now, and something just isn’t working quite right.
I’ve found people that say to just use what’s in the www folder of the ionic project, but immediately this approach seems to break the cordova plugins. For example when I keep a pure ionic project, and use xcode to deploy it to an iOS device the header is overlapped by the status bar like I would expect. When I take the www folder and build the iOS app using AppBuilder suddenly the status bar does not overlap, and the header is placed beneath it as well as top-margin being added a second later.
Thank so much for any help, I’ve also reached out to telerik to see what they say.
