Hi. I've noticed that there is a significant drop-off of commits to ionic-team/ionic project since october. Is the project still alive?
See the graph:

yeah, seems development shifted to stencil and capacitor
I do believe stencil will be used to create some form of ionic v4....
Mansour Ghaoui
@m-ghaoui
Jan 31 2018 10:13
I am not familiar with those. What are they?
yelhouti
@yelhouti
Jan 31 2018 10:14
I think they are working on ionic4, but the refactoring is so big it would be on an other new project
Jorrit
@jorrit-wehelp
Jan 31 2018 10:14
well, stencil is at https://stenciljs.com/
capacitor is their own version of cordova, it's still really new
Mansour Ghaoui
@m-ghaoui
Jan 31 2018 10:15
Ok. And capacitor is at https://capacitor.ionicframework.com/
Alright. So what is the roadmap for developers still using ionic 3.19?
Sorry typo
Does this mean that we need to rewrite all the code?
Jorrit
@jorrit-wehelp
Jan 31 2018 10:16
dead ;p
well, in theory the rewrite in stencil could be made backwards compatible
Mansour Ghaoui
@m-ghaoui
Jan 31 2018 10:16
Heheh. Yeah that's how it is with nodejs technology. Live by the sword, die by the sword.
Jorrit
@jorrit-wehelp
Jan 31 2018 10:16
but it's all vaporware at the moment
Mansour Ghaoui
@m-ghaoui
Jan 31 2018 10:17
Interesting ... That bad huh?
Ok. So ... they are no longer based on Angular2+ ?

Hello i have developed an app already
Jorrit
@jorrit-wehelp
Jan 31 2018 10:24
yeah, but the components should be just usable in an angular project....

I need help making it look good
App was developed in ionic
Mansour Ghaoui
@m-ghaoui
Jan 31 2018 10:29
Ok. So basically we should abandon ionic.
Mansour Ghaoui
@m-ghaoui
Jan 31 2018 10:38
... or not. From what I understand, stenciljs is the platform-agnostic way of building components. Looking at the documentation they seem to be using a mix of Angular and React directives but it's their own thing. In the future we can import those components into Angular
Ok. The missing piece I have is mobile support.
Meaning app store stuff
Jorrit
@jorrit-wehelp
Jan 31 2018 10:38
that's still just cordova, and in the future capacitor
Mansour Ghaoui
@m-ghaoui
Jan 31 2018 10:39
Aha
Jorrit
@jorrit-wehelp
Jan 31 2018 10:39
It's just all ionic components will be web-components, not angular
Mansour Ghaoui
@m-ghaoui
Jan 31 2018 10:40
Ok. But what do we do with our existing ionic codebase? It's essentially Angular2+ code.
Jorrit
@jorrit-wehelp
Jan 31 2018 10:41
Like I said, in theory it could still just work... angular supports having custom web components...
Mansour Ghaoui
@m-ghaoui
Jan 31 2018 10:43
Ok. Thanks @jorrit-wehelp for your answers. We'll wait and see I suppose...
Jorrit
@jorrit-wehelp
Jan 31 2018 10:44
but it's when you customize/extend ionic components, or @viewchild with ionic compoents, it all get's unsure... probably needs adapting
Mansour Ghaoui
@m-ghaoui
Jan 31 2018 10:44
Ok. If it gets too complicated then I guess we'll have to truck over to React Native
If we're gonna have to rewrite everything we might as well choose something that's more stable
But we'll wait and see and make a choice when the time comes
Jorrit
@jorrit-wehelp
Jan 31 2018 10:46
Yeah, I currently wouldn't start a new project with ionic v3....

I think they don't know it themselves at the moment more precisely than 2018 ^^

@fr4ngus From the latest blog post they are working on getting their new PWA repo working first because they wanna implement it in ionic 4 from reading it they will ethier be moving away from angular 2 and moving too stencile with web components or they will give you the option to choose.

Is there a ionic or npm command to update the whole project? All libraries / package to the latest major version? Force the version expression of the package.json to store the latest version or ignore the package version. Just get the latest software like creating a new project. A kind of rebuild the package.json. Becuase no need of some old packages for the latest ionic version.

@Domvel you could ionic start a new project, copy the versions from package.json, and npm install
Domvel
@Domvel
Jan 31 2018 17:32
@yelhouti Ok, this is Plan B :)
But ok, it's a solution. Maybe the same result. Because in both cases you have to fix some implementations of your app. I think a secure way is to create a new app with same meta data and copy the origin project files one by one. fix problems and so on.
Argh, I've a project with last update was months ago. Doen't build / serve. The update process is really annoying. :sleeping:
Ok, the application source code can't be updated automatically. But the packages and the whole ionic setup. maybe? Anyway, I'll go with a new project and copy the files. It is inevitable.

@Domvel I tried both
and what I suggested was easier
