Hoodie vs Ionic: What are the differences?

Developers describe Hoodie as "A fast offline-first architecture for webapps. Super-simple user management & storage. Great for mobile". We want to enable you to build complete web apps in days, without having to worry about backends, databases or servers, all with an open source library that's as simple to use as jQuery. On the other hand, Ionic is detailed as "A beautiful front-end framework for developing cross-platform apps with web technologies like Angular and React". Free and open source, Ionic offers a library of mobile and desktop-optimized HTML, CSS and JS components for building highly interactive apps. Use with Angular, React, Vue, or plain JavaScript.

Hoodie and Ionic are primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" and "Cross-Platform Mobile Development" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by Hoodie are:

  • Offline by default: Hoodie stores data locally first and syncs them in the background when possible. Great for mobile applications
  • One-line signup/signin/signout/resend password and other account management functions
  • Document-based storage with CouchDB: no building database schemas

On the other hand, Ionic provides the following key features:

  • Performance obsessed
  • Utilizes Angular and React
  • Native focused

"JSON" is the primary reason why developers consider Hoodie over the competitors, whereas "Allows for rapid prototyping" was stated as the key factor in picking Ionic.

Hoodie and Ionic are both open source tools. It seems that Ionic with 38.4K GitHub stars and 13.1K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Hoodie with 3.5K GitHub stars and 312 GitHub forks.
