No app.js and controller.js folder

i am new in ionic . there is no app.js and controller.js folder .so where should i write controller and router program in my project.


it is in the www folder in IONIC 1 and src folder in Ionic 2 for sure
if not you may have an error or corruption while starting ionic project
did you try . “ionic start appName --v2”? --v2 is for ionic 2

CLI v2.2.3+ defaults to building modern Ionic projects, and requires the --v1 switch to make v1 ones. If you want to make a v1 project, this thread is in the wrong category.

Yeah that means you have a Ionic-v1 project. Please post in the according forum thread (ionic-v1).

i have created project for ionic 2 .
created src folder areimage

content of app folder areimage
where should i write controller and route program.

Read the docs.

Actually there are a lot of examples around which use .controller and .factory

I was wondering the same, where to put them in ionic2? In the documentation I was not able to find this information.

Could one help me out here?

Nowhere. They don’t exist. Those are Angular1 concepts. Angular2 is a completely different framework.

To summarize it:

app.module.ts ===> where you load all pages, and services needed on a global level
app.ts ==> works fine by default, can be tweaked to many things if you need

After Controller is built inside any .ts page you use.
As for Factory, I think (not 100% sure), this is the Ionic2 equivalent of a provider value, or use a value in the Construtor, that will inherit in all page template(.html) with bindings.

All that is good, except you miss for the providers. And Typescript is not at all Angular 2 (weil in ionic 2 it it is, but it’s a clumsy definition).
As for Ionic 2 same as controller of Ionic 1, no, defintely not. Please read the docs.

Shashiraz… I’m facing the same problem. Can you plz help me understand this if you have overcame this hurdle?

I am new to ionic didn’t use ionic 1 and 2 can anyone please tell me where I can find app.js file in Ionic 3 ?

You don’t write or manipulate any .js files in Ionic 2+. You are working with typescript. I recommend to start with the docs on angular first, to learn some basics about typescript and angular. Angular is a core dependency of ionic and builds the foundation of the ionic framework.

You could start with these resources:

Hello, the simpliest way is to create a new project, once updated to ionic 3.

go to your ionic project folder —> src —> app -----> app.js you can find it
