Developers rarely create entire software systems from scratch, instead they use resources provided by other developers such as software frameworks. Software frameworks are reusable code environments designed for specific tasks. For example, the Ionic framework was designed for creating platform-independent mobile applications. Learning to use a framework takes a long time, and not all of its nuances may be immediately apparent through documentation and code examples. Our project sets out to reduce the amount of time and effort required to use the Ionic framework to create mobile puzzle games. We used combinators to successfully synthesize several games and produce a library of Ionic components to expedite the Ionic mobile game creation process.
