Ionic 2 really slow on an empty project on Android platform


I just created an empty project, added the android platform and then ran it on my Homtom HT17. Device ready fired after 9s. If I refresh it, it’s slightly different, but always at least 7 or 8 seconds. It’s a lot for a really empty project that does nothing.

Am I missing something?

Cordova CLI: 6.4.0
Ionic Framework Version: 2.0.0-rc.5
Ionic CLI Version: 2.2.1
Ionic App Lib Version: 2.2.0
Ionic App Scripts Version: 1.0.0
ios-deploy version: 1.9.0
ios-sim version: 5.0.13
OS: macOS Sierra
Node Version: v6.9.1
Xcode version: Xcode 8.2.1 Build version 8C1002

I know there already are topics about performance, but I read everything and still could not find absolutely anything that I could do. I tried putting angular in production, but barely any improvement.


after rc4 you need to run ionic run --prod --device to use AOT which dramatically increase the speed


I did that and it optimised it, but on slow devices it’s still pretty slow, I mean even 2s is too slow. It’s all local, but I guess that’s the weight of angular and ionic


Yes. Its super slow :confused:
