Linking template to build folder?

I’m using typescript.

In the starter app, the ts file for a component links to ‘build/pages/tabs/tabs.html’ rather than the html file in that component’s own directory (eg app/pages/tabs/tabs.html - which already exists).

What is the purpose of this? I’d prefer to link it to the html file in its own folder, to keep all the pieces together.

Thanks in advance!

I really dislike this as well. I much prefer using webpack to the current state of ionic’s default build system.
