How To Install Ionic Framework on CentOS 8

Install Ionic Framework on CentOS 8

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Ionic Framework on CentOS 8.  For those of you who didn’t know, Ionic Framework is a popular and widely adopted framework for building mobile applications. It allows developers to create hybrid apps that can run on multiple platforms, including iOS, Android, and the web, using a single codebase. Ionic Framework leverages web technologies like Angular and Cordova to provide a seamless development experience and access to native device features.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the Ionic Framework on CentOS 8.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: CentOS or RHEL-based such as Rocky Linux and AlmaLinux.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.
