Installing Ionic Framework

Ionic apps are created and developed primarily through the Ionic command line utility (the β€œCLI”), and use Cordova to build/deploy as a native app.

Install Ionic is a really simple process, let’s get started!


1.) Getting Node and NPM

Get Node and NPM installed on your machine is through the NodeJS installer.


2.) Ionic CLI and Cordova

Install the Ionic and Cordova CLI using command

$ npm install -g ionic cordova

That’s it, very easy and simple, right?
Now let’s quickly create the first Ionic App.

$ ionic start helloWorld blank

To run your app, cd into the directory that was created and then run command toionic serve

$ cd helloWorld
$ ionic serve

Access the app on browser at http://localhost:8100
