Field 'browser' doesn't contain a valid alias configuration

Tried to use --prod with run android command but getting this error:

follow here to find cause.


My application takes too long to show how?
#6

Followed this and now i am not getting error:

I did only two things ->

Set Typescript to ~2.4.2
Set Angular to 5.0.0
Here are the general instructions that were sent around to testers and some early adopters that we asked to test out the next release:

Set Typescript to ~2.4.2
Set Angular to 5.0.0
Set @ionic/app-scripts to nightly
Set ionic-angular to nightly
Set @ionic/storage to 2.1.3
Set rxjs to 5.5.2
Run npm install
Double check that all of that was done on your project that is failing.

show your package json

Hi!
Were you able to find a solution to this problem?

Hello @vks_gautam1 @iapprakesh @aditya_1027
Were you able to find a solution to this problem?


#11

Also having the same problem.
We had moved most of our Type Script to a shared folder and then import the path. Dev’s build just fine, but using --prod causes errors.

No description file found
no extension
Field ‘browser’ doesn’t contain a valid alias configuration
/home/user/dev/Ionic-App/apps/modules/login/terms/terms.modal.ngfactory doesn’t exist
.ts

The only suggestions I can see is maybe update angular? Not sure how to do that with Ionic, will that screw up ionic?
