There is no reason to not have browsers support. We want to write once. My clients want the same interface of mobile apps in the browsers, the same components, directives, views and modals. The same animations…
Please, think about that…
I managed to deploy our app code as mobile website just to find out that the address bar won’t hide (both on Safari and Chrome) when scrolling down as it supposed to. Did anyone managed to resolve this issue?
It looks like V2 will be expected to work for desktop browsers. See this issue:
We see “Material Design” as the preferred desktop web UI. By default, use the md mode for all desktop browsers. It’s debatable if desktop Windows browsers should get Windows platform or not, but while Windows users are browsing the web, they are using the web platform. On any desktop browser, we want the “web” platform to have a common UI. However, when an Ionic app is placed inside of a shell that runs specifically on windows, it should then get the windows platform.
If this works fine, I don’t understand why it’s a bad idea. I will decide whether or not the experience is good enough for my customers. As a mobile optimized web site, it’s pretty good. I don’t want to force everyone to download an app.
Minification of your app is great for performance and obfuscating the code. It does not however avoid making the source available as there are many high quality reverse engineering tools out there that can make uglified/minified code very readable. If you have proprietary code it needs to be kept on the back end.
I’m using one of the Ionic Themes, they are a great starting point for an app. We would like to use that as the basis of a web app, but we want to include more functionality. Has anyone tried this? I know that that means we need to have custom components for the web site, but i’m curious about peoples learning from this experience.
Hmm – we have the same question. Ionic 2 team has indicated on their blog and this forum that PWAs are supported but we can’t find any documentation specific for web applications. @Ionic team – help please!
