http://www.manning.com/wilken/IonicinA_MEAP_ch01.pdf is the introductory 
chapter for a manual on building mobile applications using a modern stack.
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.

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,
