Setting up Ionic 1 app with Ionic Pro

Hey guys, we’re in the process of migrating our ionic-v1 app to Ionic Pro. We use Deploy and that’s the major thing we’re going to need to change. In in the instructions it says to get npm run build setup:

so they when the app is deployed to Ionic Pro via git, it will be able to build it. Our app is currently using gulp to do the build process and I"m not sure if that’s available for Ionic Pro. I don’t have any instructions for moving the build process from gulp to npm build. Could someone give me some pointers on how to do that?


Right now the build process in Pro doesn’t seem to do anything (the npm run build and build script info needs to be setup in package.json, just not sure how)

did you find anything? am in the same boat, what needs to be added in the build scripts for v1 project?

Also on this any update?

Yeah! So the way we got it to work was to add the build script to package.json and run our locally-installed gulp command (which gets installed from devDependencies) from there. So in our package.json it looks something like this:

"scripts": {
    "build": "./node_modules/.bin/gulp"
"devDependencies": {
    "gulp": "^3.9.1"

Notice the ./node_modules/.bin part, that is how we run gulp installed with our package
