Life will be complicated without a command-line interface. Why? It is a text-based interface and we need it to operate software so that users can type single commands into the interface and get a reply in the same way. Today we are going to tell you about the tool of Ionic CLI that can be used for developing Ionic apps.
Ionic 4 represents the culmination of more than two years of research and hard work transforming Ionic from “mobile for Angular” into a powerful UI Design System and app framework for every web developer in the world.
The Ionic CLI is built with the help of TypeScript and Node.js. It supports Node 6+, but the developers can use the latest Node LTS as well. Here are some recommendations on usage:
- List of commands:
ionic --help ionic cordova --help ionic capacitor --help
- Command usage and a list of options:
ionic start --help ionic serve --help ionic cordova run --help
You can find more detailed installation documentation here.
We provide web app development since 2014 and constantly monitor all the new tools that appear in the field.
