I am planning to create a web app with ionic 2 as it would look also awesome when accessed from phone devices. Does Ionic 2 even support web apps or has a plan to do so in the near future?
I noticed some problems with navigation, haven’t had a chance to investigate why though. The problem is that every time I want to come back to a previous page in the history it goes out from the app.
- Go to http://coenraets.org/apps/ionic2-directory/
- Click any item from the list to show you more info about the item.
- Instead pressing ‘back’ in the app, go back using your browser back button.
The app never comes back to the initial page. Same happens when repeating this scenario from a mobile phone. What’s going on?
The developers have stated that support for “Web Apps” is a top priority for Ionic 2. However, I have not yet found an example of how one accomplishes this.
I am so very tempted to adopt Ionic 2 for a new project, but I must be able to roll this out as a web app in addition to Mobile. Worst case, I fall back to the technologies I already know (backbone, require.js) for a web only solution instead of Ionic 2.
So, can someone shed some light? Soon?
I would love to see something like this for Ionic 2:
Idk if this would help but…
I use the app both web and mobile, i just server the index html in an express api as if it was just html file, that way if a cellphone can’t handle the version required of android i deliver the web app through chrome in the browser.
Basically you can use and serve the Ionic app as if it was a web app, however at the current time you will have to configure a server to serve the necessary files and dependencies for the app to work.
As far as I know, Ionic 2 runs as a mobile website as well as an app. Obviously just without the cordova bits.
