Angular 1.4 and ionic


Hi folks,

with RC1 oft Angular 1.4 around the corner, I was wondering if you plan to make the transition to 1.4 or if you’ll stick with 1.3 until 2.0 is released.

Do you have a plan already?


Angular 1.4.2 current stable
Ion-tab UI issue with angular upgrade to 1.4.x

Any statement from the team? @max, @perry?

Thanks for all your work, Ionic is just plain awesome.


We’re not entirely sure ourselves. It depends how many things break in Ionic with 1.4. When we have a production release of 1.4, we’ll compare how many things break against how much progress is being made with v2 and make a judgement call then.


Hi Perry,

Do you think you will support the new router? Defining states at run time is a requirement for our newly planned app…

Regards, Ronald


Hi, AngularJS 1.4 has been released.

Any updates about your decision?

Thank you


I’m going to test it out on a wide array of projects and devices next week. Stay tuned.


Thanks very much to you and rest of Ionic team.

Angular 1.4 would be great because i just ran into this.

its harder to fix traditional method because i’m using lodash’s groupBy


Given the huge differences between 1.x and 2.0 I think a lot of companies are going to remain with the 1.x version of Angular for a relative long time. We are planning to do so and a lot of people that I’ve talked to are planning to do the same. So in our opinion supporting 1.4 seems like it would be the right thing to do.


@perry, is there any update to this? I am curious to know how it panned out.


Where are we at with this issue? Can anyone in the ionic team chime in and tell us if making a transition to 1.4 like the one in this tutorial is safe?



@perry Any update on this please? Preferably an ETA.


I’ve played a little bit and here is my playground:

Ionic with AngularJS 1.4 in ES6 and the ngNewRouter

But the Classes (MainController) are created twice… anyone knows why?


This is slated for 1.1, no eta


Hi, in the generator-m are being to use AngularJS 1.4. You can read more about this here.

It seems that using ionic with angularjs 1.4 could be stable.



Ionic 1.1.0 "xenon-xerus" has been released! It includes Angular 1.4.
