That means that when ionic cli try to get the tabs starter from github cant download it cause cant do a git clone (thats why the show you the message to install git or maybe if you have it already add the to the path).

Try that, hope this help :blush:

Thanks for the help man
I have added git to PATH

but now this error still persists

ionic start Temp

Error: getaddrinfo EAI_AGAIN

EAI_AGAIN is a DNS lookup timed out error, means it is a network connectivity error or proxy related error.

Maybe try it later :thinking:

Ok now it downloaded and project now up and running

Check if it is blocked by your firewall or something.
Check with system admin or ISP.
