"serve" lab parameter does not alter the web output

Hi guys, first things first, loving Ionic it has made this first time mobile developer very happy!

I have prior experience in web technologies and right now I am working on developing an application on a Codio Box. (http://codio.com | Great by the way). I have the entire ionic stack setup and have fully update everything (Node to the latest stable version). Using the ionic serve function works wonderfully but the lab parameter changes nothing on the output.

Any suggestions? Anything you need? Iā€™d be more than happy to help you help me :stuck_out_tongue:!



What command are you running? Running ionic serve --lab is working for me. Can you run ionic info and paste that info here?

Here is mine for comparison:

$ ionic info

Your system information:

Cordova CLI: 5.1.1
Gulp version:  CLI version 3.9.0
Gulp local:
Ionic Version: 1.1.0
Ionic CLI Version: 1.6.5
Ionic App Lib Version: 0.3.9
ios-deploy version: Not installed
ios-sim version: 3.1.1
OS: Mac OS X Yosemite
Node Version: v0.12.4
Xcode version: Xcode 6.4 Build version 6E35b

You should see something similar to this when the lab param is on:

Thanks for the help, it turns out the problem was that when using the lab parameter, simply pointing a browser to the server url and port will still bring you to the basic iOS display, its not until after the /ionic-lab path is appended that it actually shows the lab (Derp!), and because I was running the CLI on a command line only box, I had to go to the served web page manually, so in short, you guys are good!

Love the product and thank you so much for all of your work,
