  • Young Park

    Angular 4 improved a lot with the speed. Hope to see that in Ionic 2 in the future.

    • Sampath Lokuge

      Hi,Any reference about that news?I mean about ng-4 performance improvement?

      • Young Park

        Referencing from the AngularJS meetup at mountain view held this month. Seems their recoding isn’t ready yet. but once I find that I will post here.

        • Sampath Lokuge

          OK sure.Thanks a lot.Awaiting for that video….

          • Young Park

            Unsure whether they will post the video, but this was the meetup

          • Sampath Lokuge

            Yes,according to the “Tracy: yes this will be recorded!”,But not yet available 14+ days now.Sad πŸ™

    • Adam Bradley

      Yes, our Ionic 3 branch is already working with Angular 4 RC, and includes lazy loading modules.

      • Sampath Lokuge

        Why it’s Ionic 3? I think it should be Ionic 4 no? Otherwise we’ll feel 1 version behind the Angular no? Which is not a good first impression.What is your thoughts?

        • yesimahuman

          We’re not Angular and won’t follow their releases exactly, regardless of which version of Angular we use underneath.

      • Owa

        Any possible/estimated release date?
        Should i start a new app in ionic 2.3 or just wait for Ionic 3.x?

  • Nix

    When is @ionic/cloud-angular going to be updated to use ionic-native 3.x?

    Question #2 in order to get our app to work after we upgraded to 3.x is to still install ionic-native 2x so the cloud plugin would still function. Do you foresee any issues with this setup?

    • Tashuan

      Any progress on this? I’m at this point now I’m getting Cannot find module β€œionic-native” after installing @ionic/cloud-angular

      • Moutaz Mourad

        Same here. A new project will run and I was able to upload, but a project created a week ago started showing Cannot find module “ionic-native” right after installing @ionic/cloud-angular. Any fix or suggestion?

  • technotip

    Happy to see this coming ..but sad AdMob plugin wasn’t installed this way. It starts throwing errors – [ ‘@ionic-native/admob’ is not in the npm registry. ] Kindly let me know the fix for it. Other plugins got installed smoothly. Am yet to test its working.

    • yesimahuman

      Sorry, the package name changed (fixing docs rightnow): `npm install –save @ionic-native/ad-mob`

      • technotip
      • technotip

        I need one clarification:
        Why do we still have plugins listed in package.json
        “cordovaPlugins”: [

        For example: Status Bar plugin
        While creating new cordova project is uses, by default
        $ ionic plugin add cordova-plugin-statusbar

        We could instead use:
        $ npm install –save @ionic-native/status-bar

        Does that make any difference or are they same?

        • technotip

          I see that we need to do both?

          $ ionic plugin add cordova-plugin-statusbar
          $ npm install –save @ionic-native/status-bar

    • technotip

      Fixed it ..will see if my fix works!

  • technotip

    Cannot find module “@ionic-native/google-analytics” πŸ™

    • Davo

      and some others…I opened an issue with the one I found:

      • Davo

        These modules were renamed, see above ticket for solutions

    • Flint

      same here Cannot find module “@ionic-native/ad-mob”
      i try
      declare var AdMob: any;

      without import { AdMob} from ‘@ionic-native/ad-mob’;

      then call
      AdMob.createBanner({ bla bla });

      it work and I’m still confused

      • Srinath Srinaga

        Hi…AdMob variable which u declare is present in plugin.js. So when u compile ts file it will converted into js then it will uses plugin…

  • cocowalla

    Is it possible to mock plugins that are *not* part of Ionic Native?

  • Anton B

    Guys! That’s amazing work you are all doing, but…
    I’m using live deploy feature and will use push notification soon. All those features require ionic-cloud which still uses old ionic-native.
    As a result, the final build still includes the full ionic-native package.
    Using ionic-native 3 just increases the size of the final build, not making it smaller at all.
    After looking at ionic-cloud repos, I can see there’s no work there in the past 1-2 months.
    Please tell me what to expect?

  • Mauro

    I’ve tried to convert my app 2.x to 3 but i’ve problem with sqlite:
    [10:48:41] transpile started …
    [10:48:43] typescript: src/providers/database.ts, line: 11
    Cannot find name ‘SQLite’.

    L11: private storage: SQLite;

    Some help?

  • Kent Johnson

    Thanks for all your smart work! I upgraded as noted [here]( and everything worked fine for my currently small app. No plugins, so easy upgrade for me.
    Keep up the goodness!

  • passionate_prog

    Ionic native 3 is pretty good as previously with 2.x for instance with sqlite, i had to comment all the code as it was giving error in the browser. But now there is no need to comment the code, just create a mock class for all your sql functions and yon can run your app smoothly in the browser. Thanks the ionic team.

  • Joshua Furman

    Full plugin support within the browser will improve testing time, awesome guys.

  • GB

    All plugins giving me “No provider for” [any plugin].

    For example, I have
    import { Facebook } from ‘@ionic-native/facebook’;

    constructor(public navCtrl: NavController, private facebook: Facebook) {

    this.facebook.login // this will cause “No provider for Facebook!” error like all plugin

    in app.modules.ts:
    providers: [

    npm WARN deprecated [email protected]: Use uuid module instead
