Check Out These Brand New Ionic 4 Tutorials and Guides

Posted: May 11th, 2020Author:

New Ionic 4 tutorials and guides are out! They focus on the most in-demand features of Ionic 4 like push notifications and linking Appery.io projects to databases of different types, so these should be of great interest to our user community.

Check out these six resources:

  • Ionic 4 Todo List Tutorial
  • Working with Appery.io Database and Server Code
  • Ionic 4 File Upload App Using Cordova Plug-ins
  • Ionic 4 Two-factor Authentication
  • Push Notifications for Ionic 4 Apps
  • Creating a Development Environment for Ionic 4 Projects

Ionic 4 Todo List Tutorial

First on the list is an easy-to-follow and very detailed Ionic 4 Todo List Tutorial explaining how to build a mobile app that displays a list of data from a cloud database and communicates with the database via a REST API. (A nice name for a to-do-tutorial, don’t you think?) What’s really useful for those only starting their Appery.io experience is that this tutorial shows how to create an Appery.io database from scratch and integrate the database service into the project.

As a bonus feature, new users can also just follow the tutorial to create the app from a ready-to-go backup.

Working with Appery.io Database and Server Code

In yet another detailed guide, Working with Appery.io Database and Server Code, we show you how to work with the Appery.io NoSQL Database using Server Code scripts. This will be welcomed by more advanced users, but should also not be too difficult for those who have just joined Appery.io. You will learn how to access the database and perform all the basic CRUD operations on the data stored: creating, reading, editing, and deleting with the Server Code Collection API.

Creating a Development Environment for Ionic 4 Projects

And, last but not least, here’s the expert-level document that demonstrates how to create a development environment to be used for debugging the changes you have made for your app’s next release without interfering with the the app version in production: Creating Development Environment for Ionic 4 projects.

Quick Note: Deprecated Libraries 1.1 and 1.2 Removed from the Appery.io System

Posted: May 5th, 2020Author:

We would like to call attention to important changes made to the library versions of all Ionic 1 and Bootstrap projects.

Their library versions 1.1 and 1.2 have been marked as deprecated:

In this connection, we highly recommend upgrading your app(s) to the latest version available.

Also, please make sure you test your app to check if it works properly after performing such an upgrade.

Thank you for your understanding and happy developing!

Global Developer Community Unites for Appery.io COVID-19 Hackathon

Posted: April 29th, 2020Author:

In these times of uncertainty and unrest, individuals and businesses around the world are finding new and unique ways of working and living. While many are able to adjust with ease to the challenges of COVID-19, others are not so able to adjust easily. Social distancing measures can cause ripple effects in mental health. Economies are trending downward, forcing many to rethink their financial strategies. The elderly and other vulnerable groups need enhanced support and protection.

However, the current state of technology and collaboration provides hope that we will find solutions to these new challenges. Plus, with many people in the tech field able to work remotely, innovation doesn’t have to stop. At Appery.io, we recognize that the time is right for developers to bring their ideas to life—to find ways that we can work together to help our global community.

That’s why we are hosting the Appery.io COVID-19 Virtual Hackathon where we are encouraging developers from all over the world to build digital solutions that solve some of the challenges posed by the Coronavirus pandemic. The Appery.io COVID-19 Virtual Hackathon has already started with final submissions due May 6, 2020, by 11:59pm PDT (GMT -7). A panel of experts will judge the submissions, with up to $1,000 in cash prizes awarded. A virtual ceremony will be hosted on May 10, 2020 to recognize the finalists.

Using Appery.io, a low-code application development platform created by Exadel and used by nearly 500,000 developers worldwide, participants will be challenged to build applications that help groups and businesses most impacted by COVID-19. Projects should focus on areas like healthcare, mental health, assistance for the elderly or vulnerable, improving remote work, financial stability, or maintaining a sense of community. Developers are free to be as innovative and unique as possible with minimal restrictions on application type or theme.

Participants are welcome to register and submit their applications until May 6, 2020 to get final projects in. Submissions will be judged by a panel of experts according to a range of relevant criteria. Prizes will be awarded as follows:

  • 1st$1,000 and an Appery.io Annual Pro Subscription
  • 2nd$500 and an Appery.io Annual Pro Subscription
  • 3rd$250 and an Appery.io Annual Pro Subscription

For more information on how to get started, FAQ’s and guidelines please visit: (https://covid.appery.io/

We look forward to seeing what participants create and have no doubts that we will be inspired. In this time of distance, isolation, and uncertainty, it’s more important than ever to find ways to connect with, support, and provide hope for each other. Thanks to technology, it’s possible. Happy hacking!

Keep Calm…and Code Using Ionic 4 and Appery.io

Posted: April 1st, 2020Author:

In today’s time of unprecedented troubles and uncertainty we are happy to be able to give some bit of satisfaction to the Appery.io community: a bunch of new Ionic 4 tutorials have arrived so that you can immerse yourself in a new level of programming and be more optimistic about your future.

Over time we have been working hard to document Appery.io Ionic 4 components as thoroughly as possible. This documentation will help you understand better how the Ionic 4 app UI can be managed in the best possible way for your particular project.

App Template Tutorial

If you are only starting on your Appery.io programming journey, you will definitely find our pre-defined Ionic 4 app templates useful. To get oriented on this topic review: Ionic 4 App Templates.

Cordova Plug-in Tutorials

We have also published several easy-to-follow tutorials that demonstrate the effective use of Cordova plug-ins in Appery.io Ionic 4 projects:

Ionic 4 Calendar plugin Tutorial

Ionic 4 Document Scanner plugin Tutorial

Ionic 4 Social Sharing plugin Tutorial

 

More Sample App Tutorials

These tutorials describe how to develop some cool Ionic 4 apps:

Just take a look at how intriguing these examples are as you work through them!

Note: Most of the tutorials come with app backups that make the tutorials easier to go through.


We hope this “to-do list” of Appery.io tutorials will help you get through these trying times and make your #StayAtHome times less burdensome and as efficient and pleasant as possible.

Stay with us and hope for better times soon!

Another New Ionic 4 Tutorial: Learn How to Create a Login Form with Validation

Posted: February 7th, 2020Author:

This time we are happy to offer a new tutorial that describes step-by-step how to create an Ionic 4 app in which a login form with validation is used.

Prebuilt App Option

For this tutorial, we have added an option for you to explore a finished app before following the tutorial steps. To do this, first, download this backup file for the project. Then, click Create new app in the platform. Finish up with these steps:

  1. Select From backup
  2. Select the project backup file on your drive
  3. Type in the app name
  4. Click Create

Building from Scratch

However, if you just want to follow the tutorial to build the app from scratch, it’ll be quite easy. The tutorial includes many screenshots and detailed explanations to keep you from getting lost in the twists and turns of development.

 


And of course, stay tuned! We are working on adding even more Ionic 4 tutorials!

Platform Upgrade: The General Release of Ionic 4 App Builder!

Posted: November 12th, 2019Author:

We’re happy to announce that our Ionic 4 App builder is now a production-ready (no longer beta) solution for building mobile apps in Appery.io!

What’s next? Right now, our team is working on documentation, templates, and app samples which we’ll post shortly on our docs site here: https://docs.appery.io/. Meanwhile, check out our tutorials section: https://docs.appery.io/docs/samples-overview#section-trending.

One thing to keep in mind. Going forward, we’re removing Ionic 3 from Appery.io, but, if you have already created an Ionic 3 app and published it, you can still use it. However, we strongly suggest rebuilding the app using the Ionic 4 version in our platform.

Meet Our November 2019 Release

Posted: November 4th, 2019Author:

It’s only been a month since Ionic Angular was updated to the 4.10.0 version, but we are already out with an updated Appery.io Ionic 4 version!

Events

In our updated Ionic 4 apps, we now support more events for certain components.

Page component

  • The ionViewWillEnter event runs when the page is about to enter and become active

Image component

  • The ionImgWillLoad event is emitted when img src has been set
  • The ionError event is emitted when img fails to load

Also, support for these mouse events was added to the GoogleMapMarker, and GoogleMapWindow components:

  • Click
  • Mouse over
  • Mouse leave

Mapping

Now you can use mapping for your models defined within an app:

Storages

We have also added support for Storages. This will allow developers to define typed storage variables and use them in mapping.

Simpler Coding

And last but not least: There is no longer any need to add service include and service injection on a screen or in a custom code anymore. Just add a plug-in in App Settings under the Core Cordova plugins tab and use it from Apperyio.native helper.

Check Out Our New Ionic 4 Tutorials

Posted: October 21st, 2019Author:

Recently we rolled out a new Google Maps Tutorial for Appery.io’s Ionic 4 Builder. But, today, the Appery.io team can offer more help for our valued users to get the most out of Ionic 4! We have always tried to make developing with our platform as easy as possible, and, this time, we do so by presenting two more step-by-step tutorials on building with Ionic 4:

Ionic 4 ngx-translate Tutorial

The first tutorial will guide you through the process of creating an app using the ngx-translate third-party internationalization (i18n) library to build a spectacular multilingual application:

Ionic 4 SweetAlert2 Tutorial

The second tutorial will help you add the SweetAlert2 external module to display modal windows in your Ionic 4 app:


Both of these topics have often been requested as tutorial subjects, so we look forward to seeing a lot more implementations in Appery.io apps. We also hope our tutorials help you build up a broader understanding of how everything works with Appery.io backed up by Ionic 4 features.

Quick Note: Issues on iOS 13 Devices

Posted: October 18th, 2019Author:

Recently, we’ve noticed quite a few comments about appery.io apps not working properly on iOS 13 devices. The underlying reason is that we use Cordova APIs for apps developed for installation on native devices. And, iOS 13 isn’t officially supported by Cordova yet, so it’s possible appery.io apps on iOS 13 devices might have problems.

Rest assured, as soon as Cordova releases a version with iOS 13 support, we will take care of the necessary updating as soon as possible. (Or, if necessary, we will provide our own temporary fix.)

Thank you for your understanding!
