Ionic-platform-web-client does not bootstrap cordova


Recently I’ve installed this new library, and my index.html file was updated like this:

<!-- Cordova is bootstrapped by ionic-platform-web-client, uncomment this if you remove ionic-platform-web-client... -->
<!--<script src="cordova.js"></script>-->

If I leave cordova.js commented - none of cordova plugins are working. Does anyone had this problem? Thank you!

Same issue here on android.

if I include ng-cordova.min.js and debug directly on my device - its working!

But not via ionic deploy :frowning:


It turned out, all I need was:

ionic io init


Hi @SwataZ: Can you show me in detail?
