I sincerely hope that I am not asking a question that has already been answered. I saw a question quite similar to mine, but they werent meeting the same roadblocks as I.
Im installing ionic for the first time in Windows 8 (I also tried in windows 7). The first thing I noticed is that I have “>” instead of “$” on my CLI. Secondly I get an error that plugins could not be installed. My third and most persistent issue is that I cannot get to “ionic add platform” I get the error that my version of cordova may be too old but i updated it and the issue persists.
I saw the advice to do this in another post.
$ cordova plugin add https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf/cordova-plugin-device.git
but kept getting the error that git is not intalled. I then did an npm install git , as well as downloaded the entire program eventually. Now when I run said command i get
ERROR: spawn ENOENT
I just want to create the app without the plugin error, and ionic add platform successfully. Please help.
