Ion-nav-view vs ion-view


#1

Can someone please point out what are the differences between these two directives and also when should each one of them be used


#2

ion-nav-view should be used a base for your apps navigation and is an abstract view.

ion-view is the nested view that you can navigate to.

Obviously, I’ve been using it wrong :slight_smile:

I would add a ion-nav-view in all templates just to be able to change the animation type; but this caused a bunch of other problems.

Now that i switched all ion-nav-views into ion-view, navigation works properly but I have no means to specify what type of transition I want for that specific page.

How do i do that with ion-view?

Right now this isn’t easily possible, but we have some stuff in work to enable this :smile:
