Help us test the Ionic 5 Release Candidate!

Hello! :wave:

We’ve been hard at work on Ionic 5 to bring some big design updates for iOS including a new Segment design, pull to refresh, collapsible large title, and more! In addition to that, we’ve revamped Ionicons, improved theming, and added an entirely new API for custom animations!

We’re so excited to release this soon, and could use your help in testing it. This release candidate comes exactly a year after our Ionic 4 release.

If you’d like to try it out, you can run the following commands to install it:

# For Angular
npm install @ionic/angular@next

# For React
npm install @ionic/react@next
npm install @ionic/react-router@next
npm install ionicons@dev

Although we do recommend updating to the latest release of Ionic 4 first in order to see any deprecation warnings specific to your app in your developer console.

Please report any issues you find on our GitHub:

Thanks everyone! :blue_heart:


Is Ivy officially supported?

Yes, Ionic 5 will bring Ivy support thanks to @mhartington!


Is there any feature like this in ionic 5. Swipeable card stack

The feature doesn’t exist out of the box, but our new custom gestures coming in Ionic 5 will allow this! There was actually a blog written by Josh Morony on this recently:

Thx for the notice,

Just to check, the CDN way to use is:

    <script type="module" src=""></script>
    <script nomodule src=""></script>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="" />

? (integration test with svelte)

Getting some 404 on some svg related to ionicons, but haven’t investigated more thoroughly.

Yes, that is correct! Ionicons did have a lot of changes with the release of Ionicons 5, more info in its changelog:

We just spun up an Ionic 4 app on Friday - how do we update to Ionic 5 once it’s live?

We’ll have an upgraded migration guide here once it’s live:

It will be fairly simple though. We recommend being on the latest version of Ionic 4 so you can see deprecation warnings specific to your app, which shouldn’t exist if you just created it.

Then, you’ll be running the following commands:

# For Angular
npm install @ionic/angular@latest

# For React
npm install @ionic/react@latest
npm install @ionic/react-router@latest
npm install ionicons@latest

If you’d like to update now, the currently available next version (instructions in original post) is very close to what we will be releasing. :slightly_smiling_face:

Hi guys,

I know there is no logic that IONIC supports Angular Elements, but is IONIC 5 expected to support Angular Elements?

Thank you

Just saw your youtube episode about RC 5 and did the switch on my app.
(ok, one thing isnt but thats about it - ion refresher is blank white and not reacting at all)
–> I went through the changelogs and understood that my fault was to test my app in chrome with the ios “simulator” there. In there it was not defaulting back to web refresh. Once I changed that to “responsive” instead of “iphone” everything went well. So no issues so far!

But honestly this, I just have not expected.
I am working on my next version for app (instagram / spotify / facebook similar socialnetwork in the hardcore-punkrock niche), so it is not the smallest app feature wise and still you guys gave me no headache so far!

Thank you! For the video and much more for the smooth transition.

Thanks for the feedback! I’m happy to hear you had a smooth upgrade.

For the refresher - this may actually be a bug. It should be falling back to the browser refresher if the native refresher is not available. We just released a rc.2 about an hour ago with some fixes for refresher -

Could you try that out and let me know if that fixes it for you? :slightly_smiling_face:
