How to install specific #commit version of ionic via npm


I would like to try out specific fixes made in main ionic repo commits that were not yet released to npm.
I tried this in package.json:
"ionic-angular": "",

This downloaded the typescript source code, however it did not compile to ionic-angular module folder. Is there a way to compile it, so it used during ma app build?


To answer myself:

It is probably best to use nightly releases
npm install --save ionic-angular@nightly
