Create a blank app


I want to create an Ionic app from scratch, not from the seed app.
The getting started guide ( says, the command to start a blank app

$ ionic start myApp blank

But when I build and run this app, it is the seed ‘pet’ app.


When did you try this? I just ran it and got a truly blank app.

  <body ng-app="starter">
      <ion-header-bar class="bar-stable">
        <h1 class="title">Ionic Blank Starter</h1>
      <ion-content class="has-header">
angular.module('starter', ['ionic'])

.run(function($ionicPlatform) {
  $ionicPlatform.ready(function() {
    if(window.StatusBar) {
      // Set the statusbar to use the default style, tweak this to
      // remove the status bar on iOS or change it to use white instead of dark colors.


Hi Calendee,
I tried it again just now. Still when built and run on an iOS simulator, it shows the pet app.
