I’m new to Ionic as well as Cordova. I’ve used PhoneGap in the past, but mostly PG Build and I never really did any compiling on my local machine.
I followed the steps in the Getting Started guide and ran
ionic emulate ios, but I get this error text:
Aalaaps-iMac:myApp aalaap$ ionic emulate ios Running emulate task... Emulating app on platform ios Generating config.xml from defaults for platform "ios" Preparing ios project Running on emulator for platform "ios" via command "/Users/aalaap/Documents/Ionic/myApp/platforms/ios/cordova/run" --emulator Error: An error occurred while emulating/deploying the ios project. Error: ios-sim was not found. Please download, build and install version 1.7 or greater from https://github.com/phonegap/ios-sim into your path.

It suggests installing
ios-sim, so I did that:
sudo npm install -g ios-sim, but it only resulted in the following error:

I noticed that it suggests re-running the command as root via sudo, but that’s exactly what I did. I even tried
sudo npm cache clear and re-ran the ios-sim install command, but the same error shows up.
