Hmm, not sure what could be going on here.
What version of the cli and cordova do you have?
$ ionic -v
$ cordova -v
Update the Ionic CLI
sudo npm install -g ionic
There were some issues with projects not getting started that didn’t have git enabled. This was fixed in later versions.
Are you on windows?
Have you check out this video to make sure everything is set up correctly?
No, I am on ubuntu 14.04.
Thanks for your answer.
Hm, can you create a project just with the cordova utilities?
$ cordova create hello com.example.hello HelloWorld
Okay, it looks like an issue with a file not unzipping on ubuntu.
Want to open an issue for this on our cli repo?
I am on windows and facing same issue.
I am behind corporate proxy and as well set the npm proxy.
Ionic ver - 1.2.3
Cordova ver - 3.5.0-0.2.7
I am able to download/create project using cordova utilities “$ cordova create hello com.example.hello HelloWorld”
