The Ionic Build Process Tutorial

thumbnail Ionic Build Process

When we start using Ionic, it’s all magic, we type three commands and the application is running on our mobile device. From there it all depends of what type of person you are. Either you don’t care how things work and enjoy the dirty high of quickly creating cool hybrid applications or you want to understand what’s going behind the […]

As promised in the previous AI tutorial, we are going to use Synaptic this time. In the previous tutorial, we trained our AI to influence an Ionic application. However, we used the easiest way. Brain.js has many abstractions that help us, we are now going to use Synaptic and go deeper in the AI.

In the previous tutorial, we used Stencil to create a TODO application. The state of the application was built upon a Parent-Children System. A Redux Store can be implemented to make our life easier and that’s our new goal today.

Creating a TODO application using Stencil

Stencil arrived some months ago as the web revolution. Even for Ionic experts, the transition to this technology can seem quite complicated. At the moment and until Ionic 4 is out, Stencil’s full potential is not yet known. It’s fast and it works everywhere, that’s all we know. In this tutorial, we will use Stencil to create a TODO application.

Mixing Ionic, Dialogflow and Node.js in One Go

Last week we created an AI Chatbot by using Dialogflow (also known as API.AI) in an Ionic application. It was a fun tutorial and we have seen why people are afraid AIs will take their jobs. However, it wasn’t complete. The users could talk to an AI and receive some predefined information, but all of those weren’t real information. In […]

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is everywhere. I can’t spend one day without hearing about one new AI feature, they are even featured in my video games! No wonder Elon Musk is accelerating his Mars colonization project. Artificial Intelligence can be quite complicated, but new platforms are created to simplify it. The Dialogflow Company created a simple conversational platform. By using this type […]

7 years ago I had to do a school project on REST or SOAP. I followed my instinct and chose REST. Today I’m taking a step forward with GraphQL. Just like Redux, this technology is trending via Facebook’s React and we can now use it in our Ionic applications.

Adding Redux to an Ionic Application

Redux. You certainly have heard this word unless you lived in a cave during the past four years, if that’s the case welcome back, Donald Trump is president of the United States and World War 3 is coming soon (here is a secure source 🤣). Joke aside. Redux is rampaging because it allows us to write better quality applications and […]

Progressive Web Apps or PWA are rising. As the name suggests, they are web applications. The only difference is the progressive aspect. This word represents what we have been doing for years. We could have stayed at the Web 1.0 with static websites and funky blinking links, but thank god we didn’t.
