Can't Serve the ionic conferace app


#1

when I run ionic serve -l -p 8101 I am receiving the following error message, before it launches blank into the browser:

[12:39:06] build dev failed: Cannot read property ‘indexOf’ of undefined
[12:39:06] copy: Error copying “C:\data\app\mkb\node_modules\ionic-angular\fonts” to “C:\data\app\mkb\www\assets\fonts”
[12:39:06] copy finished in 28.95 s
[12:39:06] watch ready in 29.00 s
[12:39:06] dev server running: http://localhost:8101/

The copyhng fponts seems to have worked ok too, as the destination directory has the same content as the source directory.

The build dev failed: Cannot read property ‘indexOf’ of undefined is the main issue I seem to be facing.
Many thanks.

I have no idea why but I was getting the exact same error until I edited and saved a file in /src. Then the CLI in ran webpack and worked. Must be a bug on cli 2.1.13:

I’ve tried that and get the same error

Yes, that seems to have rebuilt it AOK, no “build dev failed: Cannot read property ‘indexOf’ of undefined” error.

So weird :S

Thanks
