How to Hide Specific Ionic Tabs in Angular

How to Hide Specific Ionic Tabs in Angular? It turns out ionic does not support this functionality by default although I think it should, but luckily it’s not that complicated.

Here are the 3 simple steps:

1. In your tabs.html add this ng-class

<ion-tabs ng-class="{'tabs-item-hide': hideTabs}">


2. Add ‘hide-tabs’ in your views where you want to hide the tabs

<ion-view hide-tabs> 


3. In your app.js add the directive to hide tabs

.directive('hideTabs', function($rootScope) {
    return {
        restrict: 'A',
        link: function($scope, $el) {
            $rootScope.hideTabs = true;
            $scope.$on('$destroy', function() {
                $rootScope.hideTabs = false;

The hide-tabs directive will hide the tab on whichever ion-view you set it to.
