What kind of database would you use?


#1

Hi everybody,

I’m new at Ionic and for my App I want to receive some data (e.g. zip code, shops, …) from a database which is located online. For this purpose I would set up a MySQL-Database.

What do you think? Would you do it the same way?

Thx!


#2

Sure why not. I would do that.

This sounds very reasonable. The only thing I would add is that hosting the database yourself can be a pain to get up & running, so I would personally recommend using a hosted DB with a free tier while developing such as https://compose.io/postgresql/

Thx “bandito” and “nysesh” for your reply and your recommendation using a hosted DB. I will do that.

I just wanted to make sure that I don’t use a completely wrong technique.
Thanks a lot guys.
