Getting started: emulator difficulties


#1

I am trying to start out on Ionic. Everything was going well until the terminal ha the following command when I used the command “ionic emulate ios.”

2014-10-20 18:50:39.387 ios-sim[2406:507] stderrPath: /Users/douglasmcvarish/myApp/platforms/ios/cordova/console.log
2014-10-20 18:50:39.388 ios-sim[2406:507] stdoutPath: /Users/douglasmcvarish/myApp/platforms/ios/cordova/console.log
Usage of ‘–family’ is deprecated in 3.x. Use --devicetypeid instead.
Usage of ‘–retina’ is deprecated in 3.x. Use --devicetypeid instead.

Any good ideas of how to correct the errors? Thanks.

Does the emulator launch?

I see the same console output as you every time I launch the emulator. The first two lines tell you where the console output will be saved and the last two lines are the iOS emulator complaining about Ionic’s command line arguments. Eventually the Ionic CLI will update and those warnings should go away.

Essentially, it’s nothing to worry about. :smile: Enjoy emulating!

Hey there guys!

So yeah those errors are on cordova’s end and hopefully they will update it soon!
Also, if the emulator doesn’t start, make sure you have ios-sim installed. Also the emulator has been giving ios-sim a hard time by not starting up right away.

But if you boot the emulator up before hand, you shouldn’t have any problems.
