Ionic start for beginner


#1

Hi,

I am new on Ionic and I tried to learn it by myself for many times but I am still blocked, I understand a little bit how does it work but simalar problems about how to start happens :

-What to use for data storage, do we always have to use json as in rest applications each time to have a nice code ?
-Wich system is the best for the data storage ? Localstorage or Firebase for example.
-Wich plugins and services are good to know and to use for a beginner, especially for authentifications.
-Wich tutorials are the bests ?

I already installed many projects but when I tried to put it on Ionic view, versions were to old …
So when I try to update modules with npm there is compatibily problems too.

I need new and operationnals tutorials or codes to study.

If you have suggestions, I would like to know them :slight_smile:

Thank you for your help.

Regards.

When I was starting, I bought Josh Morony’s book on Ionic, and the Fullstack.io book on Angular. Then when I was a bit more advanced, I bought a month’s membership at egghead.io, and watched a ton of videos about Observables. I recommend all three purchases. I learned a lot, and it was a lot faster than picking through tutorials.

Hi @Cdeveloppeur,
Welcome!
Your doubts is normal, and don’t ask too much before starting!
Put your hands dirty! It could be fast by trying, and learning tutorials.
I will share with you a Weather app that is using Open weather.
The Weather app you may clone the repo on Git Hub, or download it.
Its a simple approach, but complete example to study…
Sorry because it’s in portuguese, but you may translate.
Hope it helps you to start.
Have a nice time!

There is also my book, Mobile App Development with Ionic published by O’Reily to get you up to speed. :slight_smile:

I also concur on learning Observables, as they are incredibly powerful and complex, but once you understand them, your development will be so much easier.
