Multiple Version of Ionic


#1

I can have multiple version of Node using NVM or such tools but how I can have multiple version of ionic on my machine because it’s required to be installed globally.


#2

this tuto will help you : https://medium.com/headerlabs-india/how-to-install-two-versions-of-ionic-on-system-d5f05c6ead38


#3

It’s only the Ionic CLI that is installed globally, not the framework. The Ionic CLI works with all versions of the framework, so there’s no need to have multiple versions installed.


#4

Maybe you are right but it’s not necessary (sorry for my lake of knowledge). Plus how I can generate version 2 project with ionic 3 cli?


#5

How I can have multiple version of CLI under in same Node version?


#6

Version 2 is just Version 3 with more bugs. If you’re asking about 2 and 3, then I’d say the correct answer is: don’t do it. Upgrade all your v2 projects to v3. Your question matters for Ionic 1 vs Ionic 2/3, and probably for any of the three vs Ionic 4, but I’m not sure.

Well it’s not easy/practical to convert one large code base to another version overnight.
