I am using ionic 3, (exact versions bellow)
I am having huge issues with compile / builds consistency:
run ionic serve
change line of code in a .ts file, the browser gets refresh indication, but js files not updated / or created if i delete the js.
after js files updated - it does happen from time to time, it is not reflected in the running app while i am still under the ionic serve, just when i stop the ionic serve, and run it again. it catches the changes.
I was working with ionic 1 and 2, and never face such issues, and it start happening about 1-1.5 month ago,
clearly, while using ionic serve, you have expectations that the code changes will reflected as soon as the browser finish to reload, the inconsistency in it, is a development nightmare.
do u have similar issue with it ? any tips to overcome this frustration ?
To solve it, I make sure not to save any changes before the previous ones are actually effective.
For example, if I update a .ts file and then directly update another .ts files before ionic serve had time to fully reload the browser => the second changes are not effective.
That’s not really a solution, but that may help you overcome a bit of frustration.
Other than this scenario, I do not get any inconsistencies.
maybe a hint to the source of the problem, no-matter what changes i have made to a service file named: message.service.ts it hasn’t compiled a .js file.
Just after making a random change, to a component file, message.component.ts (which includes the message.service.ts file), it triggered compiling of the message.service.ts file, and created message.service.js file
This issue become so annoying for the development effort, that i even willing to pay for IONIC to get a professional answer for why is this happening, and how to solve it in a solid way, that will enable us to count on ionic compilation.
sadly, they havn’t get back to my contact request nor my email, for a week.
anyone have a way to get their attention to support their product - even by getting money for it ?
i cant figure out how this isn’t a critical issue for them to resolve, and response.
no, havn’t got help for it, but i did find the source of the problem (in my case), i have tried to have a shared code between angular app, and ionic app.
Creating a symbolic link under the ionic src folder, assuming it will handle it as regular code.
(sadly) duplicating the directory files, and maintain the code changes manually between the projects solve the compilation inconsistency.
