Problem including external Angular2 module "kekeh/mydatepicker" on Ionic2 (iOS)


I tried to install this module on my Ionic2 app as told on the documentation.

  1. Import it on app.module.ts
    import { MyDatePickerModule } from ‘mydatepicker’;

    imports: [ BrowserModule, MyDatePickerModule ],

Then I used on my .html

It is working fine on the web browser via ionic serve. However once I try to use it on my iPad for testing, I got the following error:

Error: Module parse failed: .../node_modules/mydatepicker/src/my-date-picker/my-date-picker.module.ts Unexpected character '@' (6:0)
You may need an appropriate loader to handle this file type.
| import { InputFocusDirective } from "./directives/my-date-picker.input.directive";
| @NgModule({
|     imports: [CommonModule],
|     declarations: [MyDatePicker, InputFocusDirective],,, Line: 67

Any ideas on how could I fix it? Has anyone imported another Angular2 external module successfully?


Same problem here.

I tried to install the module ionic2-tag-input and it is working fine on web browser. But in Android i got the following error.
