Is anyone using WkWebView IRL?


A couple of weeks ago, Ionic released the promising plugin for WkWebView

I tried to implement it but I face(d) the two following issues, which I couldn’t 100% resolve yet, even after having invested massive hours of night works.

  • CORS issue with third parties API which don’t accept null as header
  • Black screen on my wizard following the load of to much complicated ion-slide

I don’t face these both above problems with UIWebView, therefore, having to release a test version today, I decided to remove the plugin, at least for now.

I was then asking my self, before investing more time in this subject, is anyone actually using this technology and plugin IRL? Has anyone shipped an app using WkWebview which works fine without any my above problems?

Thx in advance for sharing your thoughts and advices

iOS10 http requests blocked?


Seems that wkwebview is also incompatible yet with google-maps according following posts, so really looking forward to hear someone using it for real production app…would love to have a feedback about it


Time to time I like to push up that question…so anyone using WkWebView IRL aka have published an app in store using that technology?


So I opened that thread in nov. 16 … a couple of months later, WkWebView 2 was released.

After many tests and a redesign of my app communications to solve the remaining CORS problem, I successfully published an update of my app in store with WkWebView


Im looking to release my app too, what are the recommended settings for the config.xml?

 <allow-navigation href="http://ionic.local/*" />
    <allow-intent href="http://*/*" />
    <allow-intent href="https://*/*" />
    <allow-intent href="tel:*" />
    <allow-intent href="sms:*" />
    <allow-intent href="mailto:*" />
    <allow-intent href="geo:*" />
    <allow-intent href="**" />
    <allow-navigation href="http://localhost:8080/*" />
    <allow-navigation href="**" />
    <allow-navigation href="*" />
    <allow-navigation href="**" />

Should i remove <allow-navigation href="*" /> ?
