How to Build a News App with Ionic 4 & Angular

Originally published at: https://www.sitepoint.com/ionic-4-angular-build-app/

In this tutorial we’ll be using Ionic 4 to build a news application that makes use of a third-party news API.

Ionic 4 is the latest version of Ionic, a mobile framework originally built on top of Cordova and Angular. Ionic allows users to create hybrid mobile apps with HTML, CSS and JavaScript and their related web technologies.

What makes Ionic 4 the best version yet is that it's now framework agnostic. This means it's not dependent on Angular anymore, and you you'll be able to use it with any framework or library you are familiar with, or with plain JavaScript.

But at the time of this writing, Ionic CLI only supports generating Ionic projects based on Angular, so we'll be using an Angular/Ionic project to build our news application.

See a hosted version of the application we'll be building and grab the source code from this GitHub repository.
