Missing /app folder


When I start a new ionic2 project the /app folder is missing?

ionic start cutePuppyPics --v2

I have removed and reinstalled everything, but here are my versions:

node 6.7.0
npm 3.10.3
ionic 2.1.0

What am I missing???


Assuming your project has generated properly, it’s just inside of the src folder now.


Hey Josh - you’re right. This must be a recent update?

Is it possible this update or the /app folder relocation affected the ability to create new pages from the CLI?

As of just today, running ionic g page pageName does not create a page, and instead I get this error from Terminal:

No ionic-angular package found, do you have Ionic installed? (CLI v2.0.0-beta.37)

Your system information:

Cordova CLI: 6.3.1
Ionic Framework Version: 2.0.0-rc.0
Ionic CLI Version: 2.0.0-beta.37
Ionic App Lib Version: 2.0.0-beta.20
ios-deploy version: Not installed
ios-sim version: Not installed
OS: Mac OS X El Capitan
Node Version: v6.7.0
Xcode version: Xcode 7.3.1 Build version 7D1014


Ok I see that… is there no app.ts file created by default then? I see it referenced in various tutorials. Or is that a file that must be manually created?


It’s a change for the new RC.0 release - app.ts is now app.component.ts, these changes more closely reflect the structure of a normal Angular 2 project.


The generate command should still work, are you still able to generate and serve projects normally?


I have a similar issue - no errors during ionic start with the –v2 tag, but ionic serve returns “Error: ENOENT: no such file or directory, open ‘D:\myApp\www\index.html’”. The index file is in the src directory, but none of the .js scripts referenced in the index are in the app folder. i have removed and reinstalled everything as suggested (latest node, npm, ionic cli). Is there a silent error during generation or do I have to manually generate certain files?


@jwhubert91 - Yes thanks - that make sense, will work with app.component.ts instead.

Just got confused as many of the Ionic2 instructions on the ionic website itself still reference app.ts such as https://docs.ionic.io/setup.html#configuration


Yep, the docs for the cloud platform and our getting started guide are on my next TODO


It works. Just needed to restart the CLI. Thanks Josh.


What’s about ionicBootstrap included in app.ts?

I used that for Firebase initialization:

ionicBootstrap(MyApp, [FIREBASE_PROVIDERS, defaultFirebase({
apiKey: “xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx”,
authDomain: “xxxxxxxx.firebaseapp.com”,
databaseURL: “https://xxxxxxxxxxxx.firebaseio.com”,
storageBucket: “xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.appspot.com

Maybe I should open another post for Firebase configuration.


All of this is covered in the changelog: https://github.com/driftyco/ionic/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md
