Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been introducing some of the theory behind creating applications powered by CouchDB. As promised, this week we will finally start actually building something with it. Over the next few tutorials, we will be building a blogging application in Ionic 2 that uses CouchDB as its database and backend.
We will start off simple, and cover more complex concepts as we progress. I’ve mentioned previously that when using CouchDB in an Ionic application, we generally use PouchDB as well. PouchDB allows you to store a local version of your CouchDB database, and then sync with the remote CouchDB database when online – so it’s usually a no-brainer to include in your application.
