No www folder and slow compiling process

I followed the instructions of this video tutorial to build an Ionic app:

Building a Mobile App with AngularJS 1 and Ionic by Ray Villalobos


  1. No www folder was generated. I entered “ionic build ios” but it didn’t work.
  2. The compiling process doesn’t reach an end. I kept getting the “unchanged chunks” messages.
  3. How can I get the normal Mac Terminal “$” sign back to continue entering commands?

How can I solve the above problems?


  • ionic@5.2.3
  • cordova@9.0.0
    npm: 6.9.0
    os: macOS Mojave Version 10.14.5

This doesn’t really answer your questions, but if you’re just starting out, I would highly recommend using modern framework versions instead of Ionic 1 and AngularJS. Documentation is here.
