I am using Ionic Framework v5 with Vuejs (created with
It builds in production mode, but I want to build in development mode.
I build with
ionic build, and it outputs:
> vue-cli-service build ⠴ Building for production...
When I run
vue-cli-service directly – I get the same output.
When I run
vue-cli-service build --mode development – it builds in development mode.
ionic build --mode development, but it still builds in production mode.
I tried various additional configuration changes, but couldn’t get
ionic build to build in development.
- How can this be done?
- When building in production mode – the code gets minified. How can I skip the minification?
UPDATE: I get the same results when I try to run it with
ionic build -lcs:
user@ubuntu:~/project (master)$ ionic build -lcs > vue-cli-service build ⠼ Building for production...Browserslist: caniuse-lite is outdated. Please run: npx browserslist@latest --update-db Why you should do it regularly: https://github.com/browserslist/browserslist#browsers-data-updating ⠦ Building for production...
I’m using Ionic 6 instead of 5 but running the below command as shared in this answer should do the trick.
ionic build -- --mode development
