WKWebview enabled by default?


#1

Here is the docs: https://ionicframework.com/docs/wkwebview/

However, when I use the latest Ionic CLI to start a new app, add iOS platform, build and run it on iOS, I don’t see WKWebview enabled. Specifically, in the config.xml I don’t see anything like: <plugin name="cordova-plugin-wkwebview-engine" spec="git+https://github.com/ionic-team/cordova-plugin-wkwebview-engine.git" />

Wrong documentation?

I suspect so. The only mention of “wkwebview” I found searching across the entirety of ionic-team’s GitHub repos was this obscure test app.

WKWebview will be the default soon. http://blog.ionic.io/ios-11-checklist/

I have deep respect for the Ionic team, but I just cannot understand why it’s so hard to inform the community about these basic things. We’ve been hearing that WKWebview ‘will be the default soon’ since April. See Max’s tweet: https://goo.gl/f51daK
