setup and install the Ionic framework


Ionic apps are created and developed primarily through the Ionic command line utility (the “CLI”), and use Cordova to build and deploy as a native app.This means we need to install a few utilities to get developing.

Following are the step to setup and install the Ionic framework.

Step 1: you’ll need to install the latest version of Node.js. Download the installer for Node.js 6 or greater. download Node.js

Step 2: open Node.js Command prompt and Run below code to install the Ionic Cordova  


//////For the window machine/////   

npm install -g ionic cordova

/////For the MAC machine //////       
sudo npm install -g ionic cordova 

Step 3: Once that’s done, next to locate your folder and create your first Ionic app by using below code

ionic start  MyApp  blank
  • start will tell the CLI create a new app.
  • MyApp will be the directory name and the app name from your project.
  • blank will be the starter template for your project.

If you want other template, the Ionic has a few templates available:
  • tabs : a simple 3 tab layout
  • sidemenu: a layout with a swipable menu on the side
  • blank: a bare starter with a single page
  • super: starter project with over 14 ready to use page designs
  • tutorial: a guided starter project 

Step 5: Viewing the app in a browser
First you need to locate to your created project (MyApp). Viewing the app in a browser, we need to run below command.


// locating myApp folder

cd MyApp

//Start a local dev server for app dev/testing

ionic serve
