I’ve been playing around with Ionic for a few days now and what I’ve accomplished with it so far is quite amazing.
I started off with a list view, then added tabs, modals, then the refresher to the list and now I thought a search box on top of the list would be great.
So I looked around for a good UX example and, of course, found the search box in iOS’s Mail App. The key point is, that the search box is not “in your way”. When you go to your inbox, it is not initially visible. You have, like with the refresher, scroll up to unveil it. I bet everybody has seen this before.
So I’ve tinkered a a bit through the Ionic code to see how the refresher has been implemented. By the looks of it (and my limited knowledge of Angular) this might not just be something I could easily extend because it is implemented in Ionic’s content directive which seems to be quite a driving core part.
So, question is: Is there a way to implement this, or is this maybe on the roadmap (and in the near future)?
