Router outlet is a component used in routing within an Angular or Vue app. It behaves in a similar way to Angular's built-in router outlet component and Vue's router view component, but contains the logic for providing a stacked navigation, and animating views in and out.

Note: this component should only be used with Angular and Vue projects. For vanilla or Stencil JavaScript projects, use ion-router and ion-route.

Although router outlet has methods for navigating around, it's recommended to use the navigation methods in your framework's router.

Life Cycle Hooks

Routes rendered in a Router Outlet have access to specific Ionic events that are wired up to animations

Event NameTrigger
ionViewWillEnterFired when the component routing to is about to animate into view.
ionViewDidEnterFired when the component routing to has finished animating.
ionViewWillLeaveFired when the component routing from is about to animate.
ionViewDidLeaveFired when the component routing to has finished animating.

These event tie into Ionic's animation system and can be used to coordinate parts of your app when a Components is done with its animation. These events are not a replacement for your framework's own event system, but an addition.

For handling Router Guards, the older ionViewCanEnter and ionViewCanLeave have been replaced with their framework specific equivalent. For Angular, there are Router Guards.
