Ionic: ipad simulator not rendering some views


I am developing a cross platform app using Ionic framework with angular js (no angular 2 yet).

I had no problem developing and testing on windows, and I’ve lately borrowed a macbook air to be able to develop for ios devices too.

I’ve exported the whole project on the macbook air, added ios platform, compiled, emulated but here is the surprise:

Every single component works properly, HTTP requests are done properly, but the views are sometimes not rendered.

To clarify, I have basically the landing screen of my app which is fetching from an external API a set of elements. The app is a “tabs” app.
While the API request is being executed I have a spinner and, when the request is processed, I generate a set of <ion-slide-page> (inside a <ion-slides>) and each generated slide-page (up to 10 slides) has an <ion-content> with scrolling enabled.

In windows, I was directly developing on a phisical device (a Lenovo tablet and a Nexus 5X phone), and every single view and element gets rendered properly.

On MacOSx Sierra, whenever I compile the project and run the emulator, the console tells me that the requests are properly executed, but the views does not render and doesn’t give any error either.

I wondered whether it was an ion-content related issue or an ion-slide-page one, but I’m experiencing the same exact problem on another tab of the app where it renders a set of Cards (<div class="card">), so I guess it can’t be related to any ion-component.

Did anyone experience such? May it be a simulator-related problem?



What version of Ionic (not the CLI) are you using and also what version of iOS is on the iPad?


ionic info throws:

Cordova CLI: 6.4.0
Ionic Framework Version: 1.3.1
Ionic CLI Version: 2.1.4
Ionic App Lib Version: 2.1.2
ios-deploy version: Not installed
ios-sim version: Not installed
OS: Mac OS X Sierra
Node Version: v6.9.1
Xcode version: Xcode 8.1 Build version 8B62

The Ipad Air simulator is running iOS 10.1

Running the simulator now, however, I see a strange message in the xcode console, which is:

[MC] System group container for path is [...path]

Not sure what this means, though.
