Description

What is Ionic?

Free and open source, Ionic offers a library of mobile-optimized HTML, CSS and JS components for building highly interactive apps. Built with Sass and optimized for AngularJS.

What is Apache Cordova?

Apache Cordova is a set of device APIs that allow a mobile app developer to access native device function such as the camera or accelerometer from JavaScript. Combined with a UI framework such as jQuery Mobile or Dojo Mobile or Sencha Touch, this allows a smartphone app to be developed with just HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

What is ManifoldJS?

manifoldJS takes the meta-data about your site and generates native "hosted" apps. If the platform doesn't support hosted apps, we use Cordova to polyfill it. manifoldJS is based on the latest W3C Manifest working draft.
