    I’m really proud of you as a company and team, I’m very happy with the decision I made on focusing on Ionic 🙂

    Although I’m sad to see Ionic Lab (the software) going away i completely understand the reasons why, especially if it means more features for ionic serve –lab.

    I really do hope Ionic Cloud will have more support for Windows going forward (i.e. Packaging, resources, etc). It would be nice to have the same features supported for all three main mobile OS’s.

    As for PWAs, they need more UI features (as does iPad, Surface Tablets, etc) for split-panes, etc inside Ionic.

    Looking forward to the final release of Ionic 2 and to see what the future holds.

    Thanks for making such a great framework! 🙂

    Loving Ionic 2 very much. Glad to see more of the team will be able to focus on it!

    I know this was a hard decision to make, but it makes perfect sense. Thank you for having the courage (and real courage, not the headphone jack removing kind) to make the best decision!

    I know this must have been a difficult decision (especially for Max & Ben) but I agree with every word. Focusing on what makes you awesome, will make you awesome-r ?

    I can’t believe!!! This is the best decision that could ever be made! Ionic has awesome potential, but you had too many things to do. It was impossible to keep all those things running. I’m really happy to know that we will now go forward faster 🙂 There are tons of great analytics tools, as well as push tools etc. but there’s only one Ionic! 🙂

  • Carlos Rojas

    Good decisions 🙂

  • Mike Strawhat

    Great thanks to the Ionic team. Giving up to achieve more. 🙂

    I understand your reasons but for me personaly the ease of use of ionic lab was exactly the reason to use and learn ionic at all. coming from a very different field of work its strange and funny at the same time to see that so many things related to development still need the commandline or are switching to it in your case. anyway, i hope you will develop something similar fun and easy to use to appeal to the design and usability savvy under us.

    Hey guys.. thanks for ionic 2 and ionic cloud.i am using real-time db .loving it ..one thing I would like to request is please add more querying features.preferred approach would be using REST similar to elasticsearch querying interface..querying capabilities can only differentiate ioNic db from firebase and other databases..thanks again for all your awesome work.community loves you all.

    All of the decisions are very reasonable and I think you are doing the right think by focusing on what matters most. Good job, looking forward to all the awesome features and functions you will come up with in 2017 (especially the Firebase replacement)!

    We all appreciate the amazing efforts y’all are investing on Ionic and the entire ecosystem. IonicBrazil is coming back on 2017 in full power to help out the Brazilian community (and all Portuguese speakers).
    I’m also really excited to see PWAs growing strong inside of the Ionic team. Way to go! ?

    Here here!!

    This is great news! You guys have been rocking it lately, the error handling feature is so simple, yet so helpful, Ionic native is a big win and Ionic2 is getting to a very good place.

    Now we can start building our businesses fast and with a little more investment in ionic cloud both developers and the Ionic company can benefit.

    Ionic –lab can be very useful at times and so can the Ionic view.

    The one other thing I would add is an easy way to get Ionic working nicely in the browser.
    With not to much work you could get component looking pretty nice in the browser, and with a little work on the build side you could easily have a web app (or maybe even an electron app). This would be a huge boost for some businesses.

    Please fix Ionic Storage as part of release ionic 2.
    Ionic is best thing happened to me in 2016, in mobile dev. I am glad I found it.

  • LuisMa Suárez Gutiérrez

    I love appcamp .
    and I owe a lot of my learning curve to it.
    Do you have something planned to replace it?
    It was to the point, easy to get started adn i would refer to the ” list ” section when i was developing.
    now if i need to create a sidemenu or a specific feature in ionic 2 I need to scour a few dozen examples to find where my bug is.
