I am extremely careful to follow the instructions but am going slowly insane… I am seeing that everyone that tries to install ionic has problems - so I am hoping that this is just a bad documentation problem and hope that someone will direct me to the secret documentation that works…
Following the instruction on a freshly installed windows 7 (fully patched) from ;
the documentation explicitly contains links to the sw and directions instructing to instal the latest version.
- Git for windows (2.11.0-64.exe)
- Node.js (node-v6.9.4-x64.exe)
- npm install -g cordova (cordova -v = 6.4.0)
- Java JDK ( jdk-8u112-window-x64.exe)
- ANt (1.10.0)
- ANdroid SDK (ANdroid Studio 2.2.3)
- add HOMEs and dirs to PATH
- npm install -g ionic (ionic -v = 2.1.8)
** WA|RNIN|G in ionic -v
** Dependancy warning for the CLI to run correctly
** please install cordova cli to version >=4.2.0
NOTE !!! what!!! - but cordova is 6.4.0 !!!
- ionic start tabs tabs
$ ionic start tabs tabs
Dependency warning - for the CLI to run correctly,
it is highly recommended to install/upgrade the following:
Please install your Cordova CLI to version >=4.2.0
npm install -g cordova
Creating an Ionic app in D:\temp\tabs based on the tabs template.
Installing npm packages (may take a minute or two)…
Error with start undefined
Error Initializing app: There was an error with the spawned command: npminstall
There was an error with the spawned command: npminstall
Now it would be fantastic of someone had a document that (even high level) had the instructions on how to install.
What I cant understand is why this would not work on a fresh clean install of the OS - so it would be great if we can get a big red disclaimer on the installation page that the instructions are not working
