Ionic Studio has an integrated terminal for running commands within an Ionic app.



If you're new to the command line, you can check out our blog post on the basics.

The integrated terminal is a convenient way to perform a quick command line task without navigating folder structures or switching windows. The terminal defaults to the app directory.

Examples of what you can do with the integrated terminal:

  • Ionic CLI commands
  • Git operations
  • File operations
  • etc.

Using the Terminal

To open the terminal, use Ctrl+`, or click the plus sign in the terminal bar:

The integrated terminal uses your own configured shell. Configure this on macOS by setting the SHELL environment variable.


For Windows, powershell.exe is used, and this is not yet configurable.
