I’m thrilled to announce the Ionic
Ionic 4 brings significant performance and build time improvements, powerful theming capabilities, multi-framework compatibility, brand new documentation, and so much more to the Framework you know and love.
A quick overview of what Ionic 4 has to offer:
- Stabilization Through Web Standards
- Framework Integration & Compatibility
- Support for the Angular CLI & Router
- New Documentation
- Theming with CSS Variables
- Encapsulation via Shadow DOM
The upgrade from Ionic 3 to 4 is our easiest upgrade yet, because, if you’re using Angular, the developer experience hasn’t changed at all! Our Migration Guide helps to transition your Ionic apps to take advantage of Angular’s tooling.
As with any beta software, we know there will be some rough edges. Please let us know how migration and testing goes, and please report issues to our GitHub. In order to better manage and resolve these issues, we’ve embraced using the new GitHub Project Board to make what we’re actively working on more transparent.
Thank you to everyone for using Ionic and being patient with us while we worked through organizing issues and went heads down on this new version. We think you’re really going to love it!
We’d also like to extend a huge THANK YOU to everyone that helped test the previous v4 alpha releases. Your input and feedback was instrumental in getting to this point.
