What will happens after the end of this month


#1

I’m one of mobile app developers and I loves ionic so much and I created and published some applications for other users and I update these apps every 2 to 3 months.

But as I read from some websites/pages, most of ionic services will be blocked/stoped soon. So how can continue using ionic after this month !

Should I go to an other language to develop mobile apps freely or ionic pro will support some services free ?

I can’t believe what will happens after block all free services such “ionic package build android, or ionic upload, etc”

It definitely sound like hoax and bullshit websites. Where did you read that?

UPDATE

I misunderstood what OP meant with “ionic services”. He meant “Ionic Cloud services – Push and Auth” which effectively gonna be shutdown, apparently, begin of February 2018

I agree with you, So that I need the reply about this topic.
Because No clear idea about ionic pro or other versions.

  • Should we upgrade our packages/applications to pro or not?
  • Will we can use ionic services free or every things will be by money?

#5

Again, what are your sources to be so skeptical?

Are they official Ionic sources, would make a bit of sense
They aren’t, there are hoax


#6

Sorry, may be I couldn’t explane my topic clearly

For example:

when I enter to this page “https://apps.ionic.io/apps/” there is a red warning as you see in this picture

Also there is same msg when I run “ionic upload” command

Also you can see two versions for ionic view App in Google Play Store.

first: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ionic.viewapp&hl=en
second: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ionicframework.view&hl=en

OH yes thx for the clarification. That’s definitely not a hoax at all I think

Six months ago, the 30th August 2017, the Ionic team announced that these services gonna be discontinued in February 2018, see this blog entry

So about your original question, I understand that only “Ionic Cloud services – Push and Auth” gonna be discontinued. The reason behind is that they changed their business model and that they are offering now the package Ionic Pro. Ionic Pro contains services like “Creator”, “View app”, “Deploy”, “Package” and “Monitoring” https://ionicframework.com/pro.

When it comes to the core, respectively “ionic-angular”, “ionic cli”, “ionic-native” and “ionic-app-scripts”, these projects gonna still be open source, the above mentioned announcement have no effect about them.

P.S.: That’s my understanding of course

Currently my published app checks the live update service upon login…
will it go to the catch directly when the free services is stopped? example :

this.deploy.check().then((snapshotAvailable: boolean) => {
  if (snapshotAvailable) {
    // When snapshotAvailable is true, you can apply the snapshot
  }
}).catch(()=>{// will enter here if service is stopped?
//do as usual
});
