What is the recommendation for module loaders moving forward with Ionic 2?
I’m just about to dive into the 2’s (
Ionic2 + Angular2) plus
webpack as a new module loader. I’m using the tutorial from
angular-meteor because it includes a section on
webpack. But right away I hit some angular RC4/RC5 dependency issues (from
angular2-moment). In the process of searching for a workaround I came across a couple of new issues:
- Ionic tutorials have moved to the simpler
- The Angular team prefers
webpackto prepare for the upcoming
Package Manager and Module Loader
Lets start with the simplest choices: its better to use
npmas our package manager and
SystemJsas module loader, as that seems to be the path of least friction.
Note that other package managers and module loaders would also work, but this is the choice that will likely be easier to migrate to
angular-cli, and its the combination that
Ionic2 be supporting
angular-cli? Should I bother learning
webpack2 now or wait a little longer and see what shakes out with
Better yet, should I wait until
Ionic2 beta12 is released to avoid
angular2 RC5 issues?
