I’m trying to setup a offline/disconnected development environment where i can quickly prototype and do not have access to NPM or other online services. My thoughts are that to take all the UMD version of the required libraries and use SystemJS to do browser side compiling. I have this working, however the number of files that have to be loaded is significant. In previous versions of Ionic2, there were ionic.system.js bundles. I have downloaded the source from github and have been able to build a .system version but it does not seem to work with the angular 2.2.1 RC4. When loaded in the browser it always throws the following error:
(SystemJS) Can’t resolve all parameters for provideLocationStrategy: (PlatformLocation, ?, Config).
The app structure is pretty much just the default blank template.
So i guess my question is, what is the best practice/approach/suggestion for this use case? Ultimately what i would like to be able to do is write my TS app outside of the traditional CLI pipeline so that i can test against already existing services and components. Once completed, i can always build and bundle to create a more compact version.
