Ionic React offers all the Ionic components in your React application and support for TypeScript type definitions.

Recently, Ionic team announced the release of Ionic React in beta. The new release enables you to make use of all the Ionic components in your React application. Ionic React ships with almost 70 components including buttons, cards, menus, tabs, alerts, modals, and much more. To provide a better developer experience it now also supports TypeScript type definitions.

Ionic is an open source framework that consists of UI components for building cross-platform hybrid applications. All of these components are written in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript and can easily be deployed natively to iOS and Android devices, desktop with Electron, or to the web as a progressive web app.

Historically, Ionic has been associated with Angular as both have been exclusively paired for a long time, but this changed with the recent release - Ionic 4. Now, you can use the Ionic app development framework alongside any frontend framework.

The company had been working towards making Ionic work with React and Vue for a long time.

"React developers have long used React Native to make native apps for iOS and Android. We think React Native is a good approach for native app development, but we have always believed in the web platform and think React developers will find many advantages in creating hybrid mobile, desktop, and progressive web apps with Ionic and React." wrote the company.

For the future, the team is also planning to make React Native and Ionic work together.
