Quick Mobile Application Prototyping with Ionic Creator

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

When it comes to the field of hybrid mobile application development, Ionic and its tool-stack is often an attractive choice.

Now there is Ionic Creator to speed up the development process offering an in-browser editor to create user interfaces via drag and drop and supporting basic templates for mobile applications like tabbed layouts etc.

In addition, a project created with this tool may be downloaded and started with easy and that’s what I’d like to show in the following short example.


Creating and Providing HipChat Integrations with Atlassian Connect, Nodejs and Express

Tuesday, August 18th, 2015

HipChat is Atlassian’s alternative to Slack and its solution to team collaboration chats. Atlassian Connect offers developer tools to bootstrap applications, connect to Atlassian’s cloud products with easy and in combination with HipChat’s REST APIs allows us to write integrations for such a chat server in no time.

In the following tutorial I’d like to show how to write an integration within a few steps using Atlassian Connect, Node.js and Express and how to connect the integration to a HipChat server.

Finally on the one hand I’m going to explain how to speed up local development with ngrok, an in-memory database and nodemon for automatic application restarts and on the other hand I’m going to demonstrate how to configure the application for production, running with a Redis key-value store on Heroku.


Creating a hybrid mobile Application with Ionic, Cordova and AngularJS

Sunday, May 3rd, 2015

Nowadays in the realm of hybrid mobile application development there is a variety of available frameworks worth having a look at.

In the following tutorial I’d like to demonstrate the development life-cycle for a complete mobile application using Ionic, Cordova and AngularJS (and others) covering every step from the initial project setup, creating Angular Controllers, Directives, adding Cordova Plug-Ins, running and testing the application in the browser and emulator up to finally running the application on an Android device and assembling files for a release.

Finally I’d like to show some special features from the Ionic ecosystem like the Ionic Cloud and running our applications using the IonView app.
