Just starting out with Ionic and looking for a way to merge multiple html files into one. Angular ng-includes or templateUrls are no good as I need to reduce server roundtrips. I am on a web server so I could use the web server to do my concatenation of html files (using server side templates) however I really wanted to separate my web app from my mobile app.
So I was wondering what people are using to do this with gulp? I could always add something like express.js or another server/view engine but this seems so over the top as angular handles all the complex view stuff so adding another view engine strikes me as ugly. What I would love to see is a simple style html file concatenation which I guess is pretty ugly also.
Anyways, any input/feeback is appreciated but please consider that this app will be delivered as a web app also not just as a cordoba wrapped app.
