  • This component is broken. You can click the ons-switch, but the value is not being output and the checkbox state is not changed. You should really, really consider writing tests to flag this kind of error before release.

  • @milkisevil Whats not working? Here is a complete working example. Also, I know they unit test but I can’t remember what framework they use off the top of my head.

    Edit: Just saw this is in Angular 2. I have also observed the bug for Angular but no Vanilla.
