Ionic serve not executing gulp serve


Ionic serve is not executing gulp script.

ionic serve --platform ios
Running live reload server: http://localhost:35729
Watching: www//*, !www/lib//, !www/**/.map
√ Running dev server: http://localhost:8100
Ionic server commands, enter:
restart or r to restart the client app from the root
goto or g and a url to have the app navigate to the given url
consolelogs or c to enable/disable console log output
serverlogs or s to enable/disable server log output
quit or q to shutdown the server and exit

Same issue for me. I had to revert to npm install -g ionic@2.1.0-beta.1 and that’s working for me.

My system information:

Cordova CLI: 6.3.1
Ionic Framework Version: 2.0.0-beta.11
Ionic CLI Version: 2.1.0-beta.1
Ionic App Lib Version: 2.1.0-beta.0
ios-deploy version: 1.9.0
ios-sim version: 5.0.8
OS: Mac OS X El Capitan
Node Version: v6.7.0
Xcode version: Xcode 8.0 Build version 8A218a

Ignore my advice - ionic serve isn’t rebuilding the files in the build folder.

Gulp support was removed in Ionic 2 RC0. I think the idea is just to use npm tasks instead.
