Ion-refresher - Ionic 2.0.0-beta.17

Hello to you all,

i am using Ionic 2.0.0-beta.17 for my project.

My question is if “ion-refresher” is actually working or not? I am trying to implement it but with no luck.

Thank you very much.

It’s not officially implemented yet.

Thank you for the quick reply.

As i understand, there are many to be implemented yet to version 2.

So a critical question(as a new ionic developer), is to start from v1 or v2?

Are there any news on when a stable(having at least, push notifications, refresher, …) v2 will be released?

Thank you very much.

It depends on several aspects, but here’s something I wrote in one of my articles:


If you’ve already started working on an application, then keep working with Ionic1. Drifty Co developers will continue supporting Ionic1 in parallel with Ionic2 for a long time, so don’t worry. You will have more than enough time to switch.

I would advise sticking to Ionic1 if you’re planning to release an application in next 3-6 months. More than that, go with Ionic2, you’ll probably release it just in time with Ionic2 1.0.

If you’re working on a simple and non-critical app, go with Ionic2, it’s stable enough. Even if you stumble on a bug, you’ll find a way around it.

On the other hand, If you’re adventurous or still learning, by all means go with Ionic2, it’s a brand new world, and you don’t have anything to loose.

Regarding your last question, a specific plan doesn’t exist. It will be soon, but I can’t be more specific.


We don’t have specific dates but we have created a roadmap to follow which we will update:

Please note that 2.0.0-beta.17 is the Command Line Interface (CLI) version. If you run ionic info in your project your output will look similar to this:

Ionic Version: 2.0.0-alpha.53
Ionic CLI Version: 2.0.0-beta.17

The first version is the SDK version (or the Ionic 2 source) - this is where you get the components from. The CLI is what is used to run commands such as ionic start or ionic serve.

We are working on making this more clear but there are some docs on it here:
