Hey! when I was building ionic 3 application using native plugins, I faced a strange issue during building my application to generate APK file out of it. Then I noticed that this issue was caused after adding Ionic’s Native “Background Geolocation” . So when I removed this plugin, APK generated successfully. I was in deadly need on this service. After hitting my head here and there I found a solution in Ionic threads.
The Ionic framework is best suited for the development of Hybrid apps, it provides ultimate and great features to remove that thin like to distinguish between Native and Hybrid apps. You can visit my previous post for another useful trick for Ionic optimizations.
In this post, we will discuss Template Caching technique which we can use in our Ionic applications, which optimizes the Ionic app to great extent. This will remove fluctuations which we face when we switch from one view to other as it preloads all view in advance.
Nowadays most of the mobile app developers moving towards hybrid apps which can be deployed on any platform without knowing any advanced languages. The best framework used to build hybrid apps is Ionic, which is gaining a lot of attention these days.
But if we compare a native and a hybrid, if may give you some performance lags as hybrid apps use web views. In latest OS systems like android, we can increase performance to a new level so that there will be nearly no difference in Hybrid apps.
Like native Android apps, we sometimes need a view, where list items can be loaded after user reached the bottom of all loaded list items. This behavior is recommended if we have a long list to load and we don’t want the user to tap next every time to view next set of list items.
During development of hybrid apps you hardly need to use Android Studio, and this gives a huge relief because you don’t need to start a heavy loaded application and wait to get it started from all cores . Thanks to CLI development integrated with ionic, a simple command and whoosh!!! your app is ready…
Ionic Framework using AngularJS 1 is having some different type of input field styles like:
1) Placeholder Labels
2) Inline Labels
3) Stacked Labels
4) Floating Labels
5) Inset Forms
6) Input Icons
Documentation for these can be found here http://ionicframework.com/docs/components/#forms
But the style which I was looking for was a merge of both Floating labels plus Input Icons. There was not a way to use a blend of these anywhere. But after some CSS tweaking, I managed to achieve the piece I was looking for
When we create a new Ionic app using sidemenu option, it is always visible on all pages of the demo app. In some situations when we don’t need site menu, even then it peeps in when we slide right . If we need to create an app that is having a login page to into pages, then sidemenu is not required anymore.
Connect Broadband is widely used in northern India. Connect’s service and Plans are fair enough to attract more and more people. I don’t have an affiliation with it . I just want to share with you that this service is having a very Big Small problem and that is, it can be hacked by any person in your neighborhood even if he/she is not Geeky enough, there are many tutorials out there on YouTube. People using Connect make a setting like me to protect themselves from such attacks like changing WEP-64Bits to WPA2-PSK, but believe me … this is NOT GOING TO HELP ANYWAY
