Ionic Caching Service [v3]


By default your Ionic app comes without specific HTTP caching, but sometimes it can really make sense to cache your requests for a duration to make help save the data volume of your users.

In this Quick Win we will add a super cool plugin called Ionic Cache (I think it’s no official plugin yet) to our Ionic app and perform some requests to the public Star Wars API.

    Do you have any recommendations for showing a loader when the page is initially loaded as I currently see a blank page until its loaded.

    I do have it “working” but its not the best way so any help will be much appreciated.

      .then((err) => {

      let ttl = 180;
      this.cats4 = this.cache.loadFromObservable(this.catss, req, this.catss, ttl);

      }).catch((err) => {

      let loading = this.loadingController.create({spinner: ‘dots’,cssClass: ‘loadcss’,showBackdrop: false});
      loading.present().then(() => {

      let delayType = ‘all’;
      let ttl = 60 * 60 * 12;
      this.cats4 = this.cache.loadFromDelayedObservable(this.catss, req, this.catss, ttl, delayType);

      You could use the loading controller and present the loading spinner before making your request and then dismiss it after the observable completes.
