Uh, seems the Ionic CLI v3 Release Candidates were successful:
is here: https://github.com/driftyco/ionic-cli
That’s the gist of it:
We have rewritten the CLI from the ground up. Our main focus was to:
- Decrease the amount of time to the first start execution
- Improve the responsiveness of every CLI command
- Make the architecture flexible for future platform support (PWA, electron, etc.)
- Provide better help, more guidance, and more feedback when executing commands.
In doing so we decided to take a new approach to the CLI’s structure. The base CLI installation now ships with global commands that are common to all Ionic apps.
for current Ionic projects are here:
and here for Ionic v1 projects:
Most relevant change is probably this one:
Cordova commands have been namespaced (
ionic cordova) to allow for future platform support and to reduce clutter. Cordova functionality has been moved into a CLI plugin, which is installed by default with new Ionic projects and can be installed in existing Ionic projects with
npm i --save @ionic/cli-plugin-cordova.
New official CLI documentation
lives here http://ionicframework.com/docs/cli/ and is so much better than the old one.
My testing of the last few RCs was great, so I will upgrade soon. Not much that can go wrong now, and just the speedup is worth it.
What is your experience?
