If your app is built on the Ionic framework you can easily install the Ionic CLI in your build.

First, if your project is not already setting a current Node version you will need to install at least Node 6:

nvm install 6

Next you can install Ionic with NPM:

npm install -g ionic@latest

You should now be able to use any ionic commands you need.


Any other dependencies for your project can be installed with NPM or Yarn.


There are a variety of different tools you might use to test your Ionic app. Ionic provides a detailed example that describes doing unit testing and end-to-end (e2e) testing with Karma and Jasmine.
