Update to angular 2.0.0-beta.17


We are migrating a project from Ionic 1 and Ionic 2. In the app we are using translation. We are trying to use ng2-translate which requires 2.0.0-beta.16. Trying to update the package.json with

"angular2": "2.0.0-beta.17"

and running npm update fails because of dependency errors.

What would be the way to do it ? Wait for a new release of Ionic ?

Thanks a lot.


I updated the sibling dependencies too in my own app yesterday. It seems to do the trick.


How did you do that ?


Oops I am sorry I just checked my dependencies again. I am running beta15 not 17.


what did you write in package.json?
You should compare with this.

“dependencies”: {
“angular2”: “2.0.0-beta.15”,
“es6-shim”: “^0.35.0”,
“ionic-angular”: “2.0.0-beta.6”,
“ionic-native”: “^1.1.0”,
“ionicons”: “3.0.0-alpha.3”,
“rxjs”: “5.0.0-beta.2”
“devDependencies”: {
“del”: “2.2.0”,
“gulp”: “3.9.1”,
“gulp-watch”: “4.3.5”,
“ionic-gulp-browserify-typescript”: “^1.1.0”,
“ionic-gulp-fonts-copy”: “^1.0.0”,
“ionic-gulp-html-copy”: “^1.0.0”,
“ionic-gulp-sass-build”: “^1.0.0”,
“ionic-gulp-scripts-copy”: “^1.0.1”,
“run-sequence”: “1.1.5”
“cordovaPlugins”: [
“cordovaPlatforms”: [
“platform”: “ios”,
“version”: “”,
“locator”: “ios”
“name”: “cutepuppypics”,
“description”: “cutePuppyPics: An Ionic project”

or should check node & npm version. this package needs latest version.


What i would need is

"angular2": "2.0.0-beta.16"

in your package.json you have

"angular2": "2.0.0-beta.15"


sorry. but

“angular2”: “2.0.0-beta.15” → “angular2”: “2.0.0-beta.16”

is worked.


As a note, you really should not be changing the angular dependencies yourself. The Ionic team will do this for you on every release as they need to test that everything is still functional across the new library versions.


Please don’t update yet. There are several breaking changes between the releases that will break your app. We’re working on updating ionic2 to work with the newer releases of ng2, so please be patient.
