Today I’m thrilled to announce that Salesforce customers can now quickly and easily add Salesforce authentication to any Ionic app using Auth Connect.
Auth Connect is an Ionic solution that provides a simple, secure method of integrating with auth providers to enable single sign-on (SSO) within your Ionic apps.
The perils of rolling your own SSO
An often overlooked challenge of app development is implementing secure user authentication in your mobile experiences.
期货原油交易杠杆Not only is it time consuming to integrate with an existing auth provider, it’s also risky. Teams that don’t properly authenticate users or store user secrets safely will expose themselves to the risks of a data breach or violation of customer privacy.
Out-of-date, insecure auth provider plugins are also sources of risk, along with poorly implemented OAuth integrations.
Long before joining Ionic, I (using jQuery and Knockout.js!) and deployed them to iOS and Android using Cordova. They weren’t pretty (I didn’t have something like this 😉 available), the code was messy, but they got the job done: I was a web developer building mobile apps using one codebase!
期货原油交易杠杆Despite my enthusiasm, I quickly ran into issues that would continue to haunt me over time.
Limited cross-platform deployment: I wanted to make my apps available on iOS, Android, and the web. Cordova’s focus on mobile, as well as limited browser APIs, made it challenging, if not impossible, to reach all platforms successfully.
Opaque native configuration: Builds would fail or features wouldn’t work as expected, and I struggled to solve them since I didn’t understand Cordova’s native project abstractions.
Stability: I dreaded updating the apps because native plugins would constantly break between new mobile OS versions or conflicting plugin versions.
So, Angular universal is a thing… And it seems it is something you all have been very excited about for some time. Since I some time ago, it’s been one of the top 3 most common questions asked of us (right behind “when’s Ionic Vue going to be ready”). Well I did promise that it would be happening soon and that there would indeed be a blog post, so let’s take care of that today!
Introducing the @ionic/angular-server module for Angular Universal!
期货原油交易杠杆As Ionic grows to power , the core functionality available to developers through Ionic’s Native APIs and Solutions must also grow.
We’re currently looking for Native iOS and Android engineers who are interested in building open source and commercial Native solutions for Ionic developers and customers. This would be an opportunity to build the foundation of a very popular and growing developer platform and work on lower-level functionality and features that developers will use to build wonderful apps.
期货原油交易杠杆The Ionic team today has a number of engineers with Native iOS and Android experience but we need more in order to achieve our lofty goals of building the most accessible and productive app development platform in the world.
Over the next few weeks we’re going to open up several positions. I wanted to quickly expand on what those roles entail and what the day to do day looks like, and also share some insight into what we do here at Ionic day in and day out!
We’re going to start with sales engineering and solutions architecture (Customer Success). These roles help pre- and post-sales to help our enterprise customers get the most value out of their Ionic investment and would be great for Ionic users and community members who’d like to work at Ionic.
I am incredibly excited to announce that Ionic has raised an additional $6M in funding, lead by pre Arthur Ventures, and with General Catalyst participating. This brings Ionic’s total funding to $18M from some wonderful investors.
期货原油交易杠杆I’d like to first thank our investors and advisors for your support in this process and your belief in Ionic. It means the world to us and we take your confidence in us very seriously. And thank you to the wonderful team here for your hard work, dedication, and focus on doing what is right for Ionic’s customers and users. Finally, thank you to the amazing community for building such wonderful apps and inspiring us each and every day. You are the backbone of Ionic and nothing we do would be possible without you.
Today, I’m thrilled to announce Ionic Framework 5 (Magnesium)! 🎉
