Ionic Image Loading and Caching [v3]


If your app works with some kind of API and needs to display remote images you will most likely end up thinking about caching either your requests or at least the images to improve the performance of your Ionic app.

We’ve previously talked about request caching in this Quick Win, but today we will give another plugin called Ionic Image Loader a try.

The idea behind this plugin is to improve our performance by loading the images inside a background thread using the native file implementation and also caching the images therefore. Let’s see how it works!

The full quick win with snippets is only available to Ionic Academy members.
