React has a lifecycle called ComponentWillUpdate, it basically checks if the content of a component has changed, How do I check for this in Ionic?
In which case is this necessary?
Angular uses data-binding so the data is updated instantly.
I need it for debugging purposes, is there any way I can monitor the data changes within a component in Angular/Ionic?
Normally the data-binding happens instantly, so no debugging would be necessary.
Can you give an example where debugging would be necessary?
ngOnChanges lifecycle hook may be your best bet
Plse note that angular lifecycle hooks follow a different implementation as compared to ionic lifecycle hooks
And also I am interested in the use case.
And react people interested in angular may want to go through the getting started stuff at angular.io
