Alter The Ionic 2 Gulp Script To Include Browser JavaScript Files

By - Nic Raboy

Recently I found myself needing to add a JavaScript library to an Ionic 2 TypeScript project.  Now you’ll probably recall that I’ve written two different articles regarding using JavaScript libraries in TypeScript project.  I wrote about including a JavaScript library in an Ionic 2 app in a guest post I did, but the scenario had the JavaScript library coming from the Node Package Manager (NPM).  I also wrote about including a JavaScript library in an Angular 2 app, but the project structure is a little more web friendly in that scenario.

My new scenario is including a JavaScript file, rather than NPM package.  The project structure in an Ionic 2 application is a bit different than others.  We can’t just include JavaScript files wherever we want because the build process could very well wipe them out.  Instead we have to change the Gulp build process for the Ionic 2 application.
