Ionic2 build chain


I can’t find the build process for Ionic2. Maybe like a config.js or something, which doesn’t seem to exist. The problem is that ionic already copies index.html, manifest.json, and service-worker.js from src to www, but I also need it to copy browserconfig.xml. Am I missing something big here? There seems to be no place where the build process is performed. This is a fresh install of Ionic2.


Hey there

The build process is handled by




So this seems to work, if you are searching and land here:


  "config": {
    "ionic_copy": "./config/copy.config.js"

to your package.json then make a folder “config” in your project’s root and copy the contents of into your own copy.config.js file. Edit away!
