Hello Ionites! Just want to give the community a heads up about changes that are going to be happening to Ionic 2 projects.
None of these have happened yet, but we want to give everyone a word of warning before everything breaks and the world ends.
This has been done The first one will be moving from the
ionic-frameworkpackage name to
ionic-angular. We will still publish
ionic-frameworkfor the next release, but the starters will move to
ionic-angularonce the CLI has been updated to support it. THIS WILL BREAK ALL THE THINGS, so if you’re having issues please update your CLI to the latest beta:
npm install -g ionic@beta.
This has been done We will be moving the build (transpiling, bundling, Sass compilation) out of the CLI into a gulpfile. Everything will Just Work by default, but it will now be much easier to extend your build.
This has been done We will most likely be moving away from webpack as the default bundler in favor of Browserify. Webpack fans, don’t fret, with the build being Gulp based, using webpack is as easy as swapping out the bundle task (jspm/systemJS we got you too ) . Eventually, this will be configurable.
We love you and love your feedback, so let us know if you have any questions or concerns!
