You can easily install the Ionic 3. It is not very tough. Beginners of Ionic Framework often feel it is very tough. Here I am going to simplify the installation process with fewer steps.

Step1:

Go to the below URL and download the node js and install it.

https://nodejs.org/en/

Step2:

Once you successfully installed the Node, you can check using the below command in Mac Terminal.

npm -v

Step3:

Run the below command in the Mac terminal to install the cordova.

npm install -g cordova

Check the Cordova version using

cordova -v

At the time of writing this tutorial, I faced the problem with cordova version 8. So I installed the cordova version 7 using

npm install -g cordova@7.1.0


Step4:

Run the below command in the Mac terminal to install the Ionic Framework.

npm install -g ionic

Check the Ionic version using

ionic -v

That's all. You are done. You have successfully installed the Ionic Framework Version 3(version is 3 at the time of writing this post).
