Ionic 2 vs Ionic 1

Hey Guys,

I was wondering if i could get your opinion on some things.

I am learning to develop using Ionic 2 at the present moment, but im find it difficult and buggy.

I am by no means a ‘knowledgable’ Ionic developer, but learning.

Should i be using v1 at present? How many people have tried 2 and reverted to 1.

Any opinion would be appreciated.


In my opinion, it doesn’t make sense to learn v1 now - using it is a good option if you know it already, but it’s not worth the time investment if you don’t already. A stable release of v2 is just around the corner, and that’s the framework that is going to get all the attention in the future (v1 will still be supported though).

Ahhhhh, i have read a few of your blog articles on Ionic 2 … Thats basically where im learning from hahaha my inability to work with angular2-jwt is the thing thats giving me the hump at the moment, hence the forum topic.

Thanks for your input, and keep up your work with the blogs.
