  • Download the installer for Node.js 6 or greater.
  • You can also install NodeJS LTS from Fedora repos using dnf: sudo dnf install nodejs
  • Install the ionic CLI globally: npm install -g ionic
  • Install compilers and headers, required by native addons:
  • Python
    • sudo dnf install python2
    • Note: Python 3 is not supported. See the requirements here.
  • GCC, G++ and make
    • sudo dnf install gcc gcc-c++ make
  • GNU Autotools
    • sudo dnf install autoconf automake
  • libpng headers
    • sudo dnf install libpng-devel

Note: You may need to add “sudo” in front of any global commands to install the utilities. See npm documentation for more details.

Building for Android

  • Install Java compilers: sudo dnf install java-devel
  • Install Android SDK and the system packages documented here
  • Install Gradle. Unfortunately, Fedora repos includes a rather old version of Gradle, so we recommend you to follow the instructions documented here
  • Configure your JAVA_HOME and ANDROID_HOME to point to Java and Android SDK installation directories respectively.

Getting Started

  • Clone this repository: git clone https://pagure.io/Fedora-app.git.
  • Run npm install from the project root.
  • Copy src/app/config.env.ts.example to src/app/config.dev.ts and src/app/config.prod.ts. Replace the example API keys inside them with real API keys.
  • Run ionic serve in a terminal from the project root.
  • Open http://localhost:8100 to preview your app.
  • Profit. :tada:


  • PWA - Run npm run ionic:build --prod and then push the www folder to your favorite hosting service
  • Android - Run ionic cordova run android --prod
  • iOS - Run ionic cordova run ios --prod

Ommitting the --prod will generate a debug build which is useful for Android/iOS remote debugging.

Using Ionic DevApp for rapid testing on mobile devices

Ionic DevApp is a free app that makes it easy to run your Ionic apps directly on an iOS or Android device. This avoids the cumbersome Native SDK installations.

  • Install Ionic DevApp on your phone.
  • Connect your phone and computer to the same network.
  • Run ionic serve -c from the project root.
  • Open Ionic DevApp and lanuch Fedora app from the list of available apps.

Note: Network policies and firewalls may interfere with Ionic DevApp, in that case try on a different network

Running unit tests

Unit tests

npm test runs all unit tests defined in the app.

Integration tests

  1. Start the ionic dev server with npm run ionic:serve -b. Wait for the dev server to start.
  2. In a different terminal window start the tests with npm run e2e
