Production checklist for pushing ionic 2 projects live


#1

Is there any checklist for pushing ionic 2 app to a beta release.
As of now the size of my app is 12 mb which is huge. How do i compress it?
How do i change my app icon from the default cordova icon?
Any pointers? It would be good to have a public checklist before any ionic 2 app gets out.

How do i change my app icon from the default cordova icon?

A good approach is use some automated tool that generates the icon and splashcreens for each platform and device and inject in config.xml the proper markup. Ionic has an online tool (using CLI’s command ionic resources) to do this.
Here’s a blog post I always use as reference.

About the app size, the .apk is already a compressed file. 12mB is not “huge”, this is a normal size for an Ionic app.
