Getting Started


Hi, I’m trying to get started using Ionic. I’m using a Mac/10.9
So far, I’ve successfully installed Node.js, but from there I’m unable to continue. The cordova installation attempt reads ‘command not found’.

If anyone has time to walk me through this, I’d gladly pay you for your trouble.



Have you tried following the Ionic Guide, specifically Step 2?

…it sounds like you don’t have Cordova installed, so run:

sudo npm install -g cordova

I don’t have time to walk you through the process, but make sure you’ve read through the guide, and you may want to play around with the starter project:

sudo npm install -g ionic
ionic start myproject


Thanks that worked great! Just leaving the $ off like your post vs. what’s on the tutorial you linked.


The $ is there to tell us that it’s terminal commands we should be entering, just a convention :slight_smile:


Thanks. Having never used terminal, it makes all the difference to know that :wink:
