Now that we’re familiar with the core technologies behind Ionic and understand what they do, let’s use the Ionic framework to create a project.

Creating a new project

Ionic makes it easy to create new projects from the command line using the following command:

ionic start blank-app blank --type=angular

With this command, we run the Ionic CLI tool to create a project called blank-app using a blank template and specifying Angular as our framework of choice (Capacitor is installed by default in a new Ionic project).

Enter this command in the terminal provided for you to see the results for yourself.

You’ll see the project build progress being printed to the terminal, which might take a little while to complete depending on the speed of your network connection.

Answer the prompts at the console when they appear, but you can sit back and relax for the most part.
