Always appears Ionic Blank starter after build my app


After seems all my installation is correct i made an app.
All seem to be fine when ionic serve is executed.

But after tried ionic build or ionic emulate i always get the resulting app like a clean Ionic Blank Starter without nothing else.

I cannot find out where is my mistake also i tried to create even a clean tabs app, then build, but again it creates a simple Ionic Blank Starter app as results.

Can anyone guide me what i’m doing wrong o what to check?.


I had same issue with V2, tried all sorts but in the end forced previous version of CLI tool via mom.

Npm install -g ionic@2.0.0-beta.22

I also changed Cordova version back

Npm install -g cordova@6.0.x

That worked for me for Ionic 2, may give you a pointer

Hi Graham thanks,

Downgraded but now it shows a message:

Error: Please install Android target: “android-23”

Trying to find out how to set this target… any tips?. For u was the same?.


So i solved last issue with this.
android update project --subprojects --path “platforms/android” --target android-22 --library “CordovaLib”

And all is working fine BUT STILL AFTER build again Ionic Blank Starter app and not the one showed on ionic serve :unamused:

Any other ideas what is happening?.

Can you compare node, npm, ionic & cordova versions (as below) and also validate that ‘javac -version’ works from the command line (eg your JAVA_HOme & Path etc are all correct)

Also are you building v1 or v2 apps?
