Ionic view - blank screen

I have completed an app and uploaded it.
I have installed ionic view. I start the app on my device but just get a blank screen. The app runs perfectly on the device when using ionic run.

I am using the native intel security plugin, which is not listed in the supported native plugins, would this cause the issue?

If so can I get this plugin added to ionic view?


Probably not. But you can ask:

(If you don’t mind me asking: Why do you need Ionic View if you already have a running app you generated yourself?)

Hello @Sujan12 thanks for the response.
I do not have a completed app I have tested the app on a connected android device, that is all.

I thought the point of ionic view was so that I can share and test the app with other users in the company. And also for iOs. Can I share and beta test within my company? If not what is the point of Ionic view or is it just for marketing?

Ionic View is the easiest way to get an Ionic prototype on real devices, especially to iOS if you are not on Mac yourself, that’s correct. But now you hit a roadblock with the missing plugin - that won’t be fixed any time soon. Look at the Github issue I linked, if new plugins are added at all it takes a looong time. And if you already have a running app on Android, it’s not that hard to make the jump to also have an iOS app - sooner or later you will have to anyway.

  • If you are on Windows/Linux, use Ionic Package to build the iOS app.
  • Use HockeyApp or something similar to distribute the app to your testers.
    (Okay, this is a bit more painful on iOS with all the UDID stuff - but remember, roadblock?)

Anything else I forgot?
