Sorry if this is a dumb question or I’m missing out something very simple. Was previously working (a lot) with Ionic 1.x
The way UI-router worked in Angular 1.x with Ionic, is that you had an url.
So localhost/#/home for example. And if you did changes on a page that was #/users -> you get auto reload back to /user
Now, in Ionic 2, there are no urls, meaning that if you make a change on a /user page, you get returned to home page again. And if that page is login you have to login again for example (unless you hacky). You see how this is a problem? A lot of time getting wasted?
Is there a way to use normal ‘routing with auto-reload’ in Ionic 2? Am I missing out on something very simple?
It might not be possible without storing information in a provider you create. Ionic isn’t designed for browser reload. To accommodate that, I had to remove all use of navParams from my code, for example. And the tabs navigation assumes very standard use of the app by a user of a handheld device. There are lots of edge cases where tabs routing is weird. I don’t use tabs for this reason, so maybe a poster who likes tabs more will have a better answer for you. But as a general comment, Ionic is fragile when dealing with browser page refresh.
