I don’t want to install ionic 4 ! Help me please

#1

I need help ! I don’t want to install ionic 4 I don’t like it, but I can’t install ionic 3. How can I install ionic 3? If I do this - npm install -g ionic@3.20.1, then the installation hangs and nothing happens! Help me please.
When installing, this is displayed to me - Would you like to integrate your new app with Cordova to target native iOS and Android? But if I specify Y, then nothing happens, if I specify N, then everything also hangs.
I believe that the Ionic developers did this on purpose so that we all began to use ionic 4

The npm package called ionic is the Ionic CLI (command line interface). Its current version is 4.10.2 and it supports ionic apps built with ionic framework version 3 (ionic-angular on npm) and ionic framework version 4 (@ionic/angular on npm).

Run these commands to start a new ionic 3 app:
npm install -g ionic@latest
ionic start --type=ionic-angular

That being said, I suggest you give ionic 4 another try, because I think it’s awesome!
