$ ionic cordova build

Build (prepare + compile) an Ionic project for a given platform

Synopsis

$ ionic cordova build [<platform>]

Details

Like running cordova build directly, but also builds web assets and provides friendly checks.

To pass additional options to the Cordova CLI, use the -- separator after the Ionic CLI arguments. For example, for verbose log output from Cordova during an iOS build, one would use ionic cordova build ios -- -d. See additional examples below.
