Ionic serve - is 5 seconds build normal?


I have a brand new ionic project with no additional modules or code, using the sidemenu template, and it takes on average 5 seconds :sleeping: to compile using ng serve. Is that normal?

Also a brand new angular project using ng new takes about 500 to 800ms to compile, significantly faster than when the ionic module is included. Thoughts?

I have the latest node (11.x.x) , also the latest angular cli 7.1.x

Thank you!
