Is the concensus that Ionic 4 (capacitor) has a slow Native Bridge?

 

Hey there! This is quite the opposite. The bridge layer between the webview and native APIs is fast, but has also never really been slow. There's a misconception that the native bridge is slow due to the fact that the plugins take a while to become available. With Capacitor, the plugins are loaded and bridge and created right at start up, so you can have a fast interaction between your JS code and native layer. Here's a small example just in terms of perceived startup time.

The splashscreen is only visible for a second before the actual app hides it on startup.

EDIT: If you're speaking about anything in particular, I'd love to know what issues you've faced and if you have a demo to look out.

 

Thank you for clarification. Would you suggest any adjust about Ionic?

 

The bridge itself is not slow. Rather it can be a bottleneck depending on how much data is sent thru it due to the serialization/deserialization. Think in terms of JSON.parse in the browser. Parsing a couple hundred records is fast, but if you try 50k records, then your performance suffer.
