A collection of my overviews on various topics relevant to EECS 394.

Software Overviews

Ionic

Note: Ionic 3 is assumed. We may switch to Ionic 4, when released, which will better support frameworks other than Angular.

Since Ionic is based on the PhoneGap / Cordova hybrid platform, also check the documentation and forums for PhoneGap for issues and fixes.

Firebase

Quite often, apps will need a central place to keep data. While you can create your own server to do this, that means you have to maintain a stable host that's easily deployed to. A regular web server, e.g., PHP, is not really appropriate since you don't want HTML pages, you want data.

The current best free option is Firebase. It's easy to get started, but it has its quirks.
