Ionic vs PrestaShop: What are the differences?

Ionic: 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; PrestaShop: Free, Open Source eCommerce Solution powering 185,000 active stores worldwide. PrestaShop is written in PHP, is highly customizable, supports all the major payment services, is translated in many languages and localized for many countries, and is fully responsive (both front- and back-office).

Ionic belongs to "Cross-Platform Mobile Development" category of the tech stack, while PrestaShop can be primarily classified under "Ecommerce".

Some of the features offered by Ionic are:

  • Performance obsessed
  • Utilizes Angular and React
  • Native focused

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

  • Catalog Management
  • Product Displays
  • Site Management

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

Ionic and PrestaShop are both open source tools. It seems that Ionic with 38.4K GitHub stars and 13.1K forks on GitHub has more adoption than PrestaShop with 3.77K GitHub stars and 3.22K GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Ionic has a broader approval, being mentioned in 392 company stacks & 350 developers stacks; compared to PrestaShop, which is listed in 12 company stacks and 10 developer stacks.

    PhoneGap
    PhoneGap is a web platform that exposes native mobile device apis and data to JavaScript. PhoneGap is a distribution of Apache Cordova. PhoneGap allows you to use standard web technologies such as HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript for cross-platform development, avoiding each mobile platforms' native development language. Applications execute within wrappers targeted to each platform, and rely on standards-compliant API bindings to access each device's sensors, data, and network status.
    Xamarin
    Xamarin’s Mono-based products enable .NET developers to use their existing code, libraries and tools (including Visual Studio*), as well as skills in .NET and the C# programming language, to create mobile applications for the industry’s most widely-used mobile devices, including Android-based smartphones and tablets, iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
    NativeScript
    NativeScript enables developers to build native apps for iOS, Android and Windows Universal while sharing the application code across the platforms. When building the application UI, developers use our libraries, which abstract the differences between the native platforms.
    React Native
    React Native enables you to build world-class application experiences on native platforms using a consistent developer experience based on JavaScript and React. The focus of React Native is on developer efficiency across all the platforms you care about - learn once, write anywhere. Facebook uses React Native in multiple production apps and will continue investing in React Native.
