In order to work with the Ionic framework version 2 there is a bit of software installs and configuration that needs to happen in order to deploy to devices. However, many of the guides out there leave out a number of steps that tripped me up when I first started using Ionic. This guide will go through all of the steps needed for deploying to an Android device using a Windows machine.

Note: This post applies to AngularJS. The 1.x version of Angular. At the HolidayJs event I won a book and I picked a copy of Angular In Action by Lukas Ruebbelke. I had already been using Angular for a few projects and wasn’t expecting to get much out of the book.

Today I ran into an issue using Ionic, where I was trying to put two icons on the right side of an ion list item. There is really easy to do with the item-icon-right css class.

You could do push notifications but that takes a decent amount of work to setup with both iOS and Android app stores.
After following Raymond Camden’s Strongloop Introduction, I was ready to update the todo demo application that I have been using for the Ionic Arizona Meetup. So I created a models for projects and app users. The app users model base class was User. Then within the project model I associated a project to an app users with a belongsTo and in the app users model I associated multiple projects to a single user with a hasMany.
I am doing an Ionic Framework presentation and I wanted to use the Visual Studio 2015 Cordova Tooling. I have done this presentation twice in the past couple of months using my Intel Nuc machine with the Visual Studio 2015 RTM Cordova tooling but it is kind of pain to do this since the Nuc is a desktop machine and doesn’t have a monitor so I have to look at the projector screen or being a laptop to use as well.
I ran into an issue with an npm package mis-behaving in Visual Studio 2015 but working just fine from the command line. After scratching my head for awhile trying to figure out what was going on, I discovered that Visual Studio was pointing to its own version of npm and node and not that ones that were available in my path that the command line was using.
