Change Ionic App name in "Ionic Lab"


#1

Hi,

I am try develop ionic app with the Ionic Lab on Mac

How to change the project name in “Ionic Lab”?
I created a project with cli tools “ionic start modalIonicTemplate blank”.
And modify “config.xml” and “ionic.project” as follow:

“config.xml”:
From:

<widget id="com.ionicframework.modalionictemplate148524" version="0.0.1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/ns/widgets" xmlns:cdv="http://cordova.apache.org/ns/1.0">
  <name>ModalIonicTemplate</name>

to:

<widget id="com.ionicframework.mynewapp" version="0.0.1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/ns/widgets" xmlns:cdv="http://cordova.apache.org/ns/1.0">
  <name>MyNewApp</name>

“ionic.project”:
From:

{
  "name": "ModalIonicTemplate",
  "app_id": ""
} 

To:

{
  "name": "MyNewApp",
  "app_id": ""
} 

After the changes, I can deploy the app on my Iphone with app name “MyNewApp”.
But the project name show in Ionic Lab still is “ModalIonicTemp…”

Is it a bug? Or how can I change the project name in “Ionic Lab”?

Thx.

For now the Ionic Lab is very poor tool. You can still using cli and other editor.
I found this tool useless. May be in next versions it become in something really cool.

If you do all the steps you outline, then you remove the project from Ionic Lab. Then you open the project again the name will change. I still can’t get the app icon to show up next to the project however.
