Just pick the one that suits your brand and activate it with a single modification of the related file.
Stripe paymentsA fully-functional example of Stripe payment processor usage is demonstrated. You can process credit cards professionally through a checkout form and make an actual charge by using this example as a starting point.
Restaurant MenuBarebone Ionic can now give you the solution even for a more specific kind of e-shop! That is a Restaurant e-shop! Demonstrate the Restaurant’s menu and let everyone buy your delicacies in a few steps.
A list of restaurant menu items is displayed presenting the products details, images and price. Also, a full-featured shopping cart is included so that the user can add/remove the desired menu items. Then, two delivery methods (home delivery and take away) are provided and, by the time the process is completed, the user receives an order confirmation email making them aware of the ordered items and everything else that is needed according to a simple setting of the email contents.
Tinder and Swipeable cardsBarebone Ionic makes use of Ionic’s Tinder Cards and Swipeable Cards libraries and applies a simple yet effective example of an enjoyable user experience letting the user swipe cards right, left or down. We are doing our best to make you fully aware of all the goodies you can use to make your apps even fancier!
oAuthKeep users logged in on the app by providing three different options: Facebook, Twitter and Google account. Barebone Ionic app makes use of Cordova Oauth module and lets your users have quick access to any service requires a login process. Login information is maintained in the local storage of the app unless user taps the “Log out” button. You are only one step away from the configuration of this feature. Just set the related ID of each login provider and you are all ready.
PopUp context menuCountless times views that float above app’s content are needed either to show more info about the current view, select a tool/configuration option or present a list of actions to perform inside the view. Barebone Ionic app demonstrates Ionic’s popover element to make it easier for you to get started.
SQLite and Local StorageSQLite module provides a full working example where the whole set of the CRUD operations is demonstrated. An SQLite database is initialized and a simple model is serialized and deserialized into and from it. All the UI required for this purpose is carefully handcrafted.
Is SQLite too complex for your needs? Persist your app’s data by taking advantage of Local Storage. Use Barebone Ionic’s sample code as your starting point and get the hang of it in no time! Local Storage module comes with everything you need.
FeedbackFeedback module provides the user the option to compose and send a report which consist of, a text message, an image, a video and the geographic location of the device. Watch a video demonstration
Rate this AppRatings are beneficial for finding out the problems of your app and the improvements you could make. A button from inside the app makes it quick and easy for the user to rate the app without a lot of hoops to jump through. You simply need to provide the url that will allow the user open the app directly and rate it. Besides, if the user does not make a decision to rate it on their own, the app itself will prompt the user displaying the related dialog each time they reach the number of predefined uses of the app. As for the configuration, you will need no time as just a single variable needs to be modified – no further coding is required.
EventsDisplay events in a Calendar view. Events modules provides an easy way to describe Event by using a simple JSON structure. All the records are automatically be displayed as event entries into a Calendar
NavigationThe application follows the modern trends of the “Slide menu”.
Live Radio – Audio StreamStream module gets any live streaming URL and turns it into a live radio screen. Everything is already coded so you can make your own live streaming radio available for use simply by defining the URL of your stream.
Shopping CartBarebone Ionic is coming with a full working Shopping Cart module which provides a unified add to cart and checkout user experience.
Firebase LoginBarebone Ionic is coming with a module which demonstrates the integration with the Firebase platform. A full working authentication example is part of the module.
Firebase ChatOnce the user authenticates itself, gets access to all chat rooms which have been defined through the Firebase backend. When a message is posted, in a room, appears instantly in all the other devices that are currently connected to that room. A full history of the messages is kept in Firebase.
Remote dataThe News, Products and Galleries, listing windows are fetching data from online sources by using the JSON protocol. The source URLs for these listings are set in the application’s configuration file. Images, Galleries, texts and whole entries can be updated by adjusting the remote sources. Nevertheless, rebuilding and re-distributing the application are not required for constant updates.
The same applies for the pins in the live map too. The users are able to add and configure the pin points just by adjusting the remote source.
Articles and products listingTwo different content types are used and demonstrated in Barebone Ionic.
The application provides the ability of forming Articles by adding a unique photo in any of them.
Products are similar to Articles but are supporting an unlimited number of accompanying images. An Image Slider is created by using them.
Gallery integrationBarebone Ionic comes with an Image Gallery already integrated. All the images are controlled by a remote JSON structure. Unlimited number of Galleries is supported and displayed by using three different views: Galleries Feed, Gallery’s thumbnail, Images View (slide).
WordpressBarebone Ionic provides Wordpress support that is going to facilitate you to fetch and display the posts of a Wordpress website by simply replacing a single line of the code with the desired JSON feed source.
DrupalBarebone Ionic ensures an easy way to fetch and display the articles you choose from a Drupal website in a very smart and rapid manner just by placing your JSON feed of the articles only in one line of the code.
RSSAtom, RSS, or Media RSS feed could be consumed by using the Google Feed API which is already integrated into the app. A Working example where articles are consumed for the RSS Feeds of the Wired magazine is provided

Yeoman Ionic Framework Generator poweredYeoman Ionic Framework Generator combines the best practices and features for scaffolding a hybrid application. It makes building of a mobile app easy and quickly since Yeoman is integrated with Ionic Framework and Cordova plugin. Also, the included Grunt build system optimizes and automates some important tasks of your workflow.
ModularityBarebone Ionic’s extremely modular architecture is going to eliminate any unnecessary complexity. Its code is clean and well-organised into modules to make configuration even easier. A configuration file is responsible for each feature of the application such as:
- The RSS feeds
- The News
- The Galleries
- The URLs for the remote data
Therefore, the configuration of all of the features is done through the services by which they are accompanied.
Ionic designBarebone Ionic is based on the UI elements that the Ionic Framework provides. Ionic Framework comes with a detailed and impressive CSS framework for layout styling. Furthermore, it handles header elements in a very similar way to existing libraries you may have used. Headers are available in many different default color options. Adding a footer element is as easy as adding a header. Moreover, Ionic comes with its own icon library built in which contains almost everything you should need. Use Ionic’s UI components and they will give you a fully customised and functional UI.
DocumentationThe documentation which is coming with, describes in details everything that is needed in order to get started with the app and personalize it.
