About this Episode

Ionic’s own Ely Lucas joins the React Round Up panel to discuss building the Ionic framework to work with React under the hood. Ely talks through how the team’s been hard at work making Ionic easy to pick up for any JavaScript developer with experience in React, as well as some of the benefits it can provide over straight React or React Native. Some of the biggest benefits are having just one shared codebase to power iOS, Android, Electron and PWAs, access to React Hooks and over 100 ready-to-use, easy to customize UI components on install. If you’ve heard about Ionic but want to learn more about it, and it’s newest offering Ionic React, this is the episode for you.
