As I was developing an Android application using
Ionic 4, I found a few commands quite useful during development. I thought to make a note of those useful commands here.
ionic start [<name>] [<template>]- Create a new project.
ionic serve- Open up the Ionic application in the browser.
ionic cordova run android- Run the Ionic application in either emulator or connected Android device.
ionic cordova emulate android- Emulate an Ionic project on a simulator or emulator.
ionic cordova build android- Build the ionic application & generates a debug
ionic cordova build android --prod --release- Build the ionic application & generate a release
ionic cordova platform add android- Add Android as a platform in an Ionic application.
ionic cordova prepare- Install platforms and plugins listed in config.xml of the Ionic Cordova application.
ionic g- Generate pipes, components, pages, directives, providers, and tabs.
You can also find a complete list of Ionic CLI commands on its official website. Here is the link - https://ionicframework.com/docs/v3/cli/commands.html
