Thanks in advance,

These would be two different parts. The Rails backend would need to be a different part of your app, while the ionic app would just be a client that talk to the rails backend.

Good morning,

Do I have to create two different project folder ? Or do i have to create one folder , and into this create the ionic and rails project ?

There aren’t useful guides about this. Can anyone help me ?
Thanks in advance.


The backend is completely separate from the app so it’s irrelevant whether the client app is Ionic 2 or anything else. The client just needs to know how to interact with it.

There are plenty of decent guides for creating a RESTful API (backend) and interacting with it from an app (frontend)

Thanks so much !!!
