Question:

I wonder how to check the version of ionic. If I do ionic -v I get back 1.4.3

Can that be? Wasn’t 1.0.0 just released?

Answer:

That is the version number of the Ionic CLI, which is different from the version number of Ionic’s library. Here are a couple easy ways to check the version.

In the browser console, you can run ionic.version and it will print to the console what version it is.

You can also look at the bower.json file in your app, and it will show the version number like you see here. https://github.com/ionic-in-action/chapter5/blob/master/bower.json#L5
