Ionic View App Cache Issue

Ionic is a very cool platform that is perfect for simple mobile apps. I love the simplicity of getting started quickly and even the ease of deployment to Android and for the most part IOS.

Ionic View is an app that helps developers test their code on IOS and has a lot of potential. I did run into some issues though with what appears to be some kind of caching. If you run:

ionic upload

and your app doesn’t update in Ionic View try three possible fixes:

  • In the Ionic View app select your app and Clear App Data.
  • Delete the app and download again from Ionic View. You will need to logout and log back in after deleting.
  • Delete the app from Ionic View. Open up the ionic.project file and delete the name and app_id. Run ionic upload and download again.
 
  • H.a.w.k P.h.i.l

    Your last advise is incorrect. You don’t want to delete name and app_id in ionic.project. All you need to do is make app_id = “” (blank) and ionic upload will provide a new ID.
