I noticed that Ionic5 has included gesture support but it looks like that’s really geared towards custom gestures. Is it still recommended to use HammerJS for standard swipe, press, etc?
The correct way to do it in Ionic 5 is to use its gesture engine as described here:
But it’s completely up to you, if you want to save the time of implementing own gestures with Ionic 5 and use a library like HammerJS.
The only downside to this is that you depend on a third-party-library and that this library might comes with way to many functions, that you won’t be using in your app.
