http://www.manning.com/wilken/IonicinA_MEAP_ch01.pdf is the introductory

Short read for someone who wants to see a possible technology stack.

Good analysis.

I wonder if Ionic is a good choice for a portable mobile framework.
http://ionicframework.com/

One does not want to get tied up in low level support for all the
flavors of mobile devices.

It is open source and supports AngularJS which seems to be a good model
for building Javascript applications,
