I am happy to announce the release of a new utility for generating Ionic-based applications, Ionic App Generator (macOS and Windows). The goal of this app is to allow you to completely configure all the aspects of a new Ionic application through one single appliction.
Beyond the general settings, you can also define the manifest.json file used by Progressive Web Apps.
Leveraging my experience in writing ConfiGAP, I exposed some of the key settings within the config.xml for Cordova applications.
The full collection of Ionic Native plugins are available to be installed in your application as well.
Once you have configured your application’s settings, just click the generate app button, and the tool will go through the process of generating the app.
This app is built on Electron and use Ionic for its user interface (of course). I will be writing up some discoveries I learned while building this utility shortly.
