Creating new project error

Good day all.

I am new to Ionic and if its not any bother, can anyone please assist me. I have set up my environment and when I run command line to start a new project, I get the following error:

$ ionic start myNewDemo
[WARN] Command ran non-interactively due to --no-interactive flag, CI being detected, non-TTY, or a con fig setting.
[ERROR] template must not be empty.
Use the --help flag for more details.

I would really appreciate the assistance as I am trying to learn as best as I can. Thank you.
