Hybrid Framework Setup Task

Ionic is the recommended platform this quarter. Ionic is recommended because it builds single-page apps that can be tested in web browsers, and has better support for automated testing.

If a team wishes to use Appgyver Supersonic, they should contact me first to explain why.

Once the team has selected their framework, either Ionic or Supersonic, the basic steps are the same.

This task should take just an hour or so, but may take longer if there are network or permissions issues. Get help from your teammates!

Post problems and solutions to Piazza. Always include what OS you're working on.

Specific details for Ionic and Supersonic are below.

Details for Ionic Users

Use Ionic 2, for reasons given here. Use Ionic 1 only if the entire team is already very invested in Angular 1.

For setting up your personal machine, use the barebones myApp on the Getting Started page.

For the team app, use the tutorial app. Be sure to put this in your team Github 394 repository.

Be sure to check my list of Ionic 2 tips and pitfalls.

Details for Supersonic Users

Note: Supersonic here refers to any of tools variously referred to as Steroids, AppXGyver, Supersonic and so on.

Supersonic's tutorials don't include a click-and-go "hello world" app. Everyone should should set up their individual machines by following the tutorial instructions. Do the First and Second Mile.

For the team app, use the same sample app as a base, but now have one team member create a project for it in your team Github 394 repository. Then everyone else clones and makes changes to this code, that everyone else can get and see on their devices.

When team members get the project from the repository, they will need to add the Supersonic modules locally. They are not pushed and saved to github for obvious space-saving reasons.

git clone
cd project-name
steroids login
steroids update
