After 14 hard working days we finally upgraded to RC0/RC1 and it is building without white screen on Android (iOS giving still white screen). So it is possible and thanks to this community it should be possible to do this for everyone, if we achieved it with our 100 page app with dynamic navigation and so forth.
So back to topic:
How to configure RollUp to clean whole www directory on each build?
Quite the hack given that clean should delete www by default according to ionic docs.
Unfortunately your solution is not working for me. See in screenshot ionicons.hjjbjbjbjhjhjbjjjhwoff2 should have been deleted according to the rm -rf command.

Thanks a lot. How did you configure your package.json to execute task clean before buiild?
we are having massive problems to achieve the following which worked absolutely flawlessly with gulp before RC0. I opened bug at ionic app scripts which was closed after 5 seconds and tbh I am really tired of this trivial problem. My entire team is suffering and our builds are failing.
This is how it worked with browserify and gulp and it is not how it is working today
1) CLEAN OUT ASSETS FOLDER FROM WWW 2) COPY OVER ASSETS FOLDER FROM SRC TO WWW 3) BUILD
This simple trivial task which worked since Angular 1, 4 years ago, the Ionic team mangaged to break. CONGRATULATIONS!
I don’t need to add anything in the package.json to get the entire www directory wiped and rebuilt by changing clean.js. Appemail@example.com runs clean for both prod and dev builds automatically. The issue is that it appears hard-coded to only wipe the build folder. Changing the fs_extra_1.emptyDirSync(context.buildDir) arg to context.wwwDir wipes the whole www directory for me using both npm run build and ionic serve.
