Issue working with Collection-Repeat with recent js framework

I am currently working on an application with a friend and we are finding ourselves in a bind. I have not been able to find anything on this forum regarding the following issue, but if it is something I overlooked, please guide me in the right direction.

We are trying to switch over to collection-repeat from ng-repeat to improve on performance. We currently have a page with 3 tabs, each tab containing a list of various items. We are not able to get the collection-repeat to show up inside the tab when using the most recent Ionic Framework. I have put together an example of what we are trying to do.

Note: The view and content inside the tab is intended to navigate correctly.

I am wondering if I am missing something here or if this is a know issue with collection-repeat. Any advice or guidance is welcome!
