Installing ionic CLI using npx

Is it possible to install and use ionic-cli using npx?

Yes, see this: https://ionic.zone/capacitor/cli

That link has nothing to do with Ionic CLI and npx, but is about Capacitor.

That’s true, but it’s the exact same principle:
npx ionic start myApp tabs --type=angular

Then link to some npx docs - this link is just confusing.
