Ion-list not displaying

I created a theme with ionic creator and imported it to Intel XDK but it is not displaying the list when I try to change the div class=“item item-body list-container” to an ion-list. I want to change it so that I can use ng-repeat to get data from database.

<div class="item item-body list-container" id="temporada2016-list-item-container4">
        <div id="temporada2016-markdown7" style="margin-top:0px;color:#666666;">

not working code:

    <ion-item ng-repeat="item in items">

How could I display a list on XDK using ionic?
