Install Ionic without CLI

Is there a way to install Ionic without using the CLI?

Thanks in advance.

If you’re talking about adding Ionic to your project without using the CLI, you can add the files to your project structure. You can download the latest zip from the main page, or if you want specific files, from here: http://code.ionicframework.com/#

Reference them in your main html page and you can use Ionic’s features

<script type="text/javascript" src="ionic/js/ionic.bundle.min.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="ionic/css/ionic.min.css" />

you can download the files from ionic main website then refrence them in your code

Thank you so much! Not sure how I missed this :wink:

Thanks. So, can I expect to create a skeleton app in Stackblitz just for prototyping until I actually get to installing the ionic CLI on my machine?

there is even a stackblitz starter with Ionic included as if you have the CLI
