HammerJs event does not trigger with ionic v5

Hello Ionic Devs
i’m trying to impliment some hammerjs gestures (tap , swipe) but it doesn’t seems to be triggeed
I installed hammerjs package

npm install --save hammerjs @types/hammerjs

I added this to main.ts

import 'hammerjs';

And i’m using it like this

<span (tap)="hideSlider($e)" class="card-close-icon"><ion-icon name="close"></ion-icon></span>`

This is because of Angular 9+, not Ionic. Add the HammerModule to your app.module.ts. Then it should work again :blush:
