I fell down an Ionic rabbit hole!
For my final DevMountain project I want to use Ionic. I started on the getting-started page - which seemed like the really super-duper obvious place to start. When I got to step 3, specifically
ionic platform add,
ionic build, &
ionic emulate I started chasing not just a white rabbit, but a whole warren of white rabbits! First android AVDs, then JVMs, then Android Studio, then gradle, then AVDs again, then Genymotion. If I didn’t already have short hair, I would have by this point. Finally, one of the other students mentioned that Amy-Kate had some Ionic experience. I let her know I was pretty sure I was down the rabbit hole and really needed a guide to help me return to reality. A few moments later, she introduced me to
ionic serve and pointed me to the Ionic Guide.
If you’re just starting out with Ionic, save yourself the rabbit hunt - start with the Ionic Guide!!!
