With the latest release of Ionic 2 RC0, compilation takes more time. As you may know, with RC0 npm scripts are now used for the build process and with by default it’s compiling in production mode.
I know we can run with success : “
npm run build --dev” but it doesn’t work with “
How can we build in dev mode in order to reduce build time ?
According to : https://github.com/driftyco/ionic-app-scripts#ionic-environment-variable
“process.env.IONIC_ENV environment variable can be used[…]”
How can we set this environment variable ?
Add a --dev in your package.json file, under scripts.build.
“build”: “ionic-app-scripts build –dev”,
A other usefull trick :
set “run:before” to “watch” to enable livereload on your device…
But livereload doesn’t work…
I’m using :
ionic emulate ios -l -c
with “run:before” set to “watch” in the package.json file.
Any idea ?
emulate:before set to “watch”
instead of “run:before” for the emulation
