How to change StatusBar color in ionic 2

There seems to be a problem on Ionic 2 . It doesn’t seem to be possible to change the StatusBar color, in some custom ROM like MIUI , the statusbar always appears black with white text. How to force ionic to change statusbar color?

Here the answer from my brother, tommy pradana

constructor(public platform: Platform) {
        if ('android') ) {
            this.platform.ready().then(() => {
                // Okay, so the platform is ready and our plugins are available.
                // Here you can do any higher level native things you might need.

or you could use this code below

if (cordova.platformId == 'android') {

And dang…. it will force statusbar color to change based on your code. So, let’s coding again

How long does it typically take to publish an app on the Google Play Store?

Q: How long does it typically take to publish an app on the Google Play Store?

A: Pretty quick actually. Once you push it live from the publishing interface, it will take a max 2/3 hours to be live to consumers. Unlike iTunes, Google review does not involve any human testing so it is much quicker. Google play store auto review , and after 3-5 hours , the app will appear on Play store.The reason for the time is there’re multiple servers that are serving Play Store and these servers need time to synchronize their list of apps.

We have tried pushing updates to our app at different times and observed that

Quickest turnaround (30 – 45 mins)
Mondays & Thursday afternoon ( 2:30 – 3:30 pm IST)

Longest times (3- 5hrs)
Thursday, Friday, Saturday evenings ( 5:30 – 7:30 pm IST).

Although the publishing is automated, the turnaround time might be affected by server traffic.


Build android apk with ionic and publishing to Google Play Store

Before we deploy, we should take care to adjust plugins needed during development that should not be in production mode. For example, we probably don’t want the debug console plugin enabled, so we should remove it before generating the release builds:

cordova plugin rm cordova-plugin-console

To generate a release build for Android, we can use the following cordova cli command:

cordova build --release android

This will generate a release build based on the settings in your config.xml. Your Ionic app will have preset default values in this file, but if you need to customize how your app is built, you can edit this file to fit your preferences.

Next, we can find our unsigned APK file in platforms/android/build/outputs/apk

For example:
In android platforms => /android/build/outputs/apk/android-debug-unaligned.apk

Now, we need to sign the unsigned APK and run an alignment utility on it to optimize it and prepare it for the app store. If you already have a signing key, skip these steps and use that one instead.

Let’s create keystore file using this command

keytool -genkey -v -keystore .keystore -alias  -keyalg  -keysize  -validity 

For Example :

Step 1 : set path   cd C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin     in command line
Step 2 : keytool -genkey -v -keystore Helloworld.keystore -alias Helloworld -keyalg RSA -keysize 2048 -validity 10000

Follows the belows steps to generate Signed APK

Step 1: set path C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.8.0_20\bin in command line

Step 2: jarsigner -verbose -keystore /path_to_keystore/keystoreFileName  /path_to_apk_file/application_name.apk keystoreFileName_alias

For example: 
jarsigner -verbose -keystore C:\Users\admin22\Ionic_project\First\Helloworld.keystore  C:\Users\admin22\Ionic_project\helloWorld\platforms\android\build\outputs\apk\android-release-unsigned.apk Helloworld

-keystoreFileName_alias. You have to provide your alias name of your keystore file name.

Step 3: Enter password of your keystore file

Step 4: Completed. It will displays warning messages like certifaction validity etc..

Step 5: Verify your apk file jarsigner -verify /path_to_apk_file/application_name.apk

For example :
jarsigner -verify C:\Users\admin22\Ionic_project\helloWorld\platforms\android\build\outputs\apk\android-release-unsigned.apk

jarsigner -verify -verbose -certs C:\Users\admin22\Ionic_project\helloWorld\platforms\android\build\outputs\apk\android-release-unsigned.apk

Zip align:

Step 6: set path C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\sdk\build-tools\android-4.4W in command line

Step 7: zipalign -v 4 /path_to_apk_file/application_name.apk /path_to_destination_apk_locaion/zipped_application_name.apk

For example :
zipalign -v 4 C:\Users\admin22\Ionic_project\helloWorld\platforms\android\build\outputs\apk\android-release-unsigned.apk C:\Users\admin22\Ionic_project\helloWorld\platforms\android\build\outputs\apk\final.apk

Google Play Store

Now that we have our release APK ready for the Google Play Store, we can create a Play Store listing and upload our APK.

To start, you’ll need to visit the Google Play Store Developer Console and create a new developer account. Unfortunately, this is not free. However, the cost is only $25 compared to Apple’s $99.

Once you have a developer account, you can go ahead and click “Publish an Android App on Google Play” as in the screenshot below:

New google play app

Then, you can go ahead and click the button to edit the store listing (We will upload an APK later). You’ll want to fill out the description for the app. Here is a little preview from when we filled out the application with the Ionic Todo app:

Ionic Todo

When you are ready, upload the APK for the release build and publish the listing. Be patient and your hard work should be live in the wild!

Updating your App

As you develop your app, you’ll want to update it periodically.

In order for the Google Play Store to accept updated APKs, you’ll need to edit the config.xml file to increment the version value, then rebuild the app for release.


Standartized splash screen support for Cordova

Configuring splash screen

Configuration of splashscreen is similar to existing phonegap build specification, and to existing <icon> behaviour.

You can define app splashscreen via <splash> element (config.xml). If you do not specify a splash screen then the default splash screen for each platform is used.

    <splash src="splash.png" width="120" height="240" density="mdpi"/>

src: (required) specifies the location of the image file, relative to application root directory

width: (optional) image width in pixels

height: (optional) image height in pixels

density: (optional) android specific, specifies image density

For each platform you can also define a splashscreens to fit different screen resolutions.


     <platform name="android">
              <!-- Portrait -->
              <splash src="res/android/splash-portrait-ldpi.png" density="port-ldpi" width="320" height="426" />
              <splash src="res/android/splash-portrait-mdpi.png" density="port-mdpi" width="320" height="470" />
              <splash src="res/android/splash-portrait-hdpi.png" density="port-hdpi" width="480" height="640" />
              <splash src="res/android/splash-portrait-xhdpi.png" density="port-xhdpi" width="720" height="960" />
              <!-- Landscape -->
              <splash src="res/android/splash-ldpi.png" density="land-ldpi" width="426" height="320" />
              <splash src="res/android/splash-mdpi.png" density="land-mdpi" width="470" height="320" />
              <splash src="res/android/splash-hdpi.png" density="land-hdpi" width="640" height="480" />
              <splash src="res/android/splash-xhdpi.png" density="land-xhdpi" width="960" height="720" />


     <platform name="ios">
              <!-- iPhone  -->
              <splash src="res/ios/splash.png" width="320" height="480" />
              <!-- iPhone Retina  -->
              <splash src="res/ios/splash-2x.png" width="640" height="960" />
              <!-- iPhone 5  -->
              <splash src="res/ios/splash-wide.png" width="640" height="1136" />
              <!-- iPad -->
              <splash src="res/ios/splash-ipad-portrait.png" width="768" height="1024" />
              <splash src="res/ios/splash-ipad-landscape.png" width="1024" height="768" />
              <!-- iPad Retina -->
              <splash src="res/ios/splash-ipad-portrait-2x.png" width="1536" height="2048" />
              <splash src="res/ios/splash-ipad-landscape-2x.png" width="2048" height="1536" />

Windows Phone8

     <platform name="wp8">
              <splash src="res/wp/splash.jpg" width="768" height="1280" />


     <platform name="windows8">
              <splash src="res/windows8/splash.png" width="300" height="620" />

Larangan mengikat rambut saat sholat khusus laki-laki

Memiliki rambut yang panjang tidak di larang dalam islam, sesuai yang saya ketahui batasan panjang rambut bagi pria adalah sebatas bahu. Kemudian terkait dengan adabnya ada larangan mengikat rambut saat sholat khusus laki-laki. Topik ini kembali teringat oleh saya ketika ada obrolan singkat bersama Kawan saya selepas sholat ashar.

Berikut hadits-hadits yang terkait tentang Larangan mengikat rambut saat sholat khusus laki-laki

Diriwayatkan dari ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbas rodhiyallohu ‘anhuma, bahwasanya ia melihat ‘Abdullah bin al-Harits sedang mengerjakan shalat sementara rambutnya terikat ke belakang. Segera saja Ibnu ‘Abbas bangkit untuk mengurai ikatannya. Selesai shalat ia mendatangi Ibnu ‘Abbas dan berkata, “Ada apa gerangan dengan rambutku?” Ibnu ‘Abbas berkata, “Sesungguhnya aku mendengar Rasulullah shalallahu alaihi wasalam bersabda, ‘Sesungguhnya perumpamaannya adalah seperti orang yang shalat dengan tangan terikat’,”
(HR Muslim [492]).

Diriwayatkan dari Abu Sa’ad –seorang lelaki penduduk Madinah- ia berkata, “Aku melihat Abu Rafi’ Maula Rasulullah shollallohu ‘alaihi wasallam menyaksikan al-Hasan sedang shalat dengan rambut terikat. Lalu ia melepaskan ikatannya atau ia melarangnya. Lalu ia berkata, “Sesungguhnya Rasulullah shollallohu ‘alaihi wasallam melarang seseorang mengerjakan shalat dengan rambut terikat,”
(Shahih lighairihi, HR Ibnu Majah [1042], Ahmad [VI/8 dan 391], ‘Abdurrazaq [2990])

Rasulullah shollallohu ‘alaihi wasallam bersabda, “Itu (ikatan rambut) adalah tempat syaitan,”
(Hasan, HR Abu Dawud [646], at-Tirmidzi [384], Ibnu Khuzaimah [991], ‘Abdurrazaq [4991], al-Baihaqi [II/109] dan Ibnu Hibban [2779]).
