We have an issue where we want to use Google Analytics with our Ionic 2 project. We have unfortunately no time at this point to do an upgrade to the latest Ionic 3 as it would likely require a lot of bugfixing and testing again.
I have tried to install the google analytics plugin like it explains in the docs.
$ ionic plugin add --save cordova-plugin-google-analytics
$ npm install --save @ionic-native/google-analytics
But when I do that I get errors because this seems to want to add ^3.7.0 of it which has a dependency to @ionic-native/core@^3.6.0 - and our Ionic 2 project uses ionic-native ^2.5.1
Is there a way to install an earlier version of this plugin so that I can use it in our project?
I find the upgrade frequency daunting in Ionic, and its really hard to keep track and actually use it for app development without spending a lot of time fiddling with upgrades and dependencies. How do you all handle this in a small development team? We are only 2 developers so there isn’t enough time to keep up and be somewhat confident that we haven’t introduced a ton of new bugs with the latest upgrade - requiring yet another month of user testing.
