I have an Ionic v1 app that I am now using Amazon Cognito for Auth. It works nicely because I built the back-end in AWS with a combination of RDS (database), lambda (functions), and APIG (api gateway). The Cognito users identity can be nicely integrated into the back-end for authorization that partitions the back-end features. Anyway, the login process is using a JS library provided by the folks at amazon. The problem is that the library runs WWAAYY slower when running on an actual iOS device. Research indicates that there is a performance issue w/one of the libraries used by Amazon when it runs in UIWebView.
People have found that cordova apps can use the WKWebView as a work-around to improve the login performance. I know that Ionic is working on cutting the WKWebView into Ionic. A few questions:
- will this include older v1 apps?
- is there a timeline for that release?
- will there be an option to configure Ionic View to use this?
- or, is there a workaround to get this in Ionic View?
I am planning on some beta testing w/ my client suing Ionic View and would like to resolve this before releasing the test. Any input/help is greatly appreciated…
