Abhijeet Rathore published this tutorial all about getting Phaser and Ionic 4 playing nicely together: "Ionic platform has become one of the big names in app development in recent years. Moving from Ionic 1 to 4 in past few years, Ionic has not just gained popularity, but also improved its robustness and reliability.
