Ionic 4 is here! This is 4.0 release of Ionic Framework for building native apps and PWAs with Web technology.
Ionic 4 represents the culmination of more than two years of research and hard work transforming Ionic from “mobile for Angular” into a powerful UI Design System and app framework for every web developer in the world.
- Every one of the nearly 100 Ionic components has been evaluated for performance, theme customizability, and platform look and feel. This includes a complete iOS and Material Design refresh for each component to match the latest standards on iOS and Android.
- One of the biggest changes under the hood is the move to using native CSS Custom Properties, also known as CSS Variables, in each component.
- With a focus on framework-agnostic web components, Ionic is ready to be the foundation for your own Design Systems, essentially building your own Ionic on top of Ionic.
- Moving to “build your own framework” model, and because Ionic’s UI controls are now based on Web Component APIs, they can generally work out-of-the-box in all major frontend frameworks (Angular, React, Vue, etc.).
