You've probably heard by now, but the 3.0.0 release of Ionic is now officially available. If you're not sure what exactly that means in relation to Ionic 2, I'd recommend watching my last video on the topic. In short, Ionic 3 is just a major update to Ionic 2, it's not a totally new framework.

Video Notes

  • An explanation of @NgModule
  • The @IonicPage decorator can be added to page components to enable lazy loading and deep linking
  • Components with the @IonicPage decorator must also have their own module file
  • Deep linking allows you to link to a specific page in your application using a URL
  • When lazy loading pages, you no longer need to import the pages anywhere – you simply refer to them using their name as a string
