Extending radio buttons to have icons when unchecked


#1

Hi everyone,

my project required custom icons on both checked and unchecked radio
buttons, ionic seemed to only support icons on checked radio buttons, so
i copied the radio button directive into another directive and changed
it so that it would allow for both checked-icon and unchecked-icon
attributes, it’s working great on my project, so i wanted to contribute
it into ionic.

i have never contributed anything to an open source project before, much less to a big one like ionic, so the idea is a bit intimidating, i’m posting this here and i made an issue on github ( https://github.com/driftyco/ionic/issues/4329 ) hoping to get some peer review of what i’m proposing before going ahead and try to make a pull request.

Here is a ionic playground test of the custom directive i made as a candidate to replace the current ion-radio directive.
