I’ve been developing an Ionic App for several months now - really enjoying it!Usually I’m upgrading the Ionic components as soon as possible and seldomly experienced any errors in the past. But in the last few days I spent several hours trying to keep my environment current and my application runnng at the same time.
This is where I come from:
Cordova CLI: 5.1.1
Gulp version: CLI version 3.9.0
Gulp local: Local version 3.8.11
Ionic Version: 1.0.0
Ionic CLI Version: 1.6.4
Ionic App Lib Version: 0.3.8
OS: Windows 7 SP1
Node Version: v0.10.40
Everything is running fine, but the CLI is reminding me constantly to upgrade my node installation to version 0.12.x. Doing as I’m told, I upgraded to node 0.12.7, with the effect, that now
gulp sass|watch stopped working with the following error message
... \apps\tradeFairOrder\node_modules\gulp-sass\node_modules\node-sass\sass.js:22 throw new Error('`libsass` bindings not found. Try reinstalling `node-sass`? ^ Error: `libsass` bindings not found. Try reinstalling `node-sass`? ...
I read up on this on the forums and stackoverflow and tried many suggestions, mainly upgrading
gulp-sass manually, but after being told to install Python and Visual Studio to regenerate bindings I gave up. I believe there must be a better way, since none of this was necessary, when I first installed Ionic.
Next I decided to upgrade my Ionic lib with
ionic lib update to version 1.1.0, with the effect that my application stopped working in Chrome. Here is what I see in the browser console:
Maybe something to do with some additional libraries in use in my app like angular-cookies or angular-translate?
Is somebody experiencing something similar or has suggestions, how I can get back on track?
