I have encountered 2 frustrating problems with Ionic CLI on Windows for several months, and was hoping these would be fixed in final release, but they still persist:
HTML template changes do not get reflected in the browser. I have tried clearing browser cache, Incognito mode, Ctrl+F5, but nothing works. Killing the CLI session and re-issuing ionic serve command sometimes works. I have also asked this question in SO, but no reply yet.
I have edited my question and included the results of ionic info command. Further, if appscripts is the issue, why wouldn’t the ionic cli install the correct version of appscripts? Am I missing something?
What you’re describing is not normal. You might want to do a clean install: delete cordova and Ionic, delete Node and npm, make sure the node-modules folder is manually deleted, reinstall node, reinstall cordova, reinstall Ionic. In that order.
