The end of the year is a great time to reflect on the last twelve months and to start getting excited for the coming twelve. In many ways, 2018 was a pivotal year for Ionic, both on the open source side and for the company as a whole. On the open source side, the Ionic […]
Earlier this week, many Android/Google/Firebase libraries were unpublished from JCenter, causing any builds that depended on these libraries to fail across the board.
