I just installed it, created a new app, but there is not lib folder anymore.

When released “stable” version

@pbruna what do you mean? Did you update ionic?

sudo npm install -g ionic
ionic start myApp

@pbruna are you on windows?

Hey max !

As pbruma says, the PROJECT/www/lib directory is no longer created when starting an ionic app.

sudo npm update -g ionic
ionic start myGreatApp
ls myGreatApp/www

Result is :


If I recall, there used to be a lib folder with ionic and angular stuff (like ionic.bundle.js) :wink:
I just copied them from the zip archive

Thanks for the amazing job you are doing with Ionic Framework.

@hakan_ebabil @swder can you try again? Just pushed a fix. Also be sure to explicitly update the ionic cli.

npm install -g ionic && ionic start myApp, no need to update this time.


Nope, still no lib folder. FYI, I am on Mac OSX, don’t know if the info is relevant, though.

Can you put the result of cat /usr/local/share/npm/lib/node_modules/ionic/package.json | grep version in here?

We need to add an ionic --version command!

Thanks for the beta release !

I’m on Mac OSX too. and command result is “version”: “1.0.0-beta.1”

can you show me everything that’s inside the created app folder?

you might want to change
$ ionic start myApp side-menu


$ ionic start myApp sidemenu

Awesome work!

Thanks for updating the seed app as well. For those managing their bundled library with Bower you can run bower install driftyco/ionic-bower#v1.0.0-beta.1 to pull down the beta.

If you’re interested in using Yeoman + Grunt to manage your workflow and build system I’ve updated this generator with the new release as well.

So, the directory is not the one you specified but : /usr/local/lib/node_modules/ionic

And version is : “version”: “1.0.0-beta.1”,

Please refer to

no ionic or angularjs that are normally in the lib folder. quick fix, i should have waited a few days to updates. wow, the this version run a little bit faster on android.

in the new version it is directly in the js folder. this is how i have it when i install

Hi @max,
after looking at the code I noticed that the new css was built from sass using gult, so I installed gult and run again ionic start myapp and now there is a lib folder.

I guess now is requisite to have gult installed, right?. Im running the v1.0.0-beta on Mac OS Mavericks.

By the way: Thanks for Ionic!!!
