Ionic provides tools and services for creating hybrid mobile applications, desktop, and progressive web apps using web technologies like HTML5, CSS and Sass.
|Ease of Learnability||Composed of pre-defined and pre-styled components, developers are not required to remember anything before development.||It comparatively has less pre-defined components.|
|Code reusability||The same code works well on multiple interfaces without hassles. Ionic can be used to develop Android, iOS, Web, desktop and Progressive Web Apps.||Same as ionic, code-reusability is there, but additionally, developers need to remember quite some things during the course of development.|
|Checking out performance||It makes use of WebView which makes application drag a bunt.||It is quicker and fastback as it does not make use of WebView.|
|Testing of Code||The code can be tested on any browser||React Native required a specific emulator or a real mobile device to test the code.|
|Accessibility||It makes use of Apache Cordova||React native does not require any framework to work, it’s self-sufficient.|
|Documentation||Ionic is easier to understand with documentation.||Basic documentation makes it easy to understand but is slightly complex than Ionic.|
|Community Support||It is backed by a strong community.||It enjoys a strong community support.|
|Development Cycle||Development process is fast.||The development process is slow in comparison to ionic.|
|Purpose||Write once, run anywhere||Learn once, write anywhere|
