PWA - Run
npm run ionic:build --prod and then push the
www folder to your favorite hosting service
Android - Run
ionic cordova run android --prod

Using Ionic DevApp for rapid testing on mobile devices
Ionic DevApp is a free app that makes it easy to run your Ionic apps directly on an iOS or Android device. This avoids the cumbersome Native SDK installations.
Install Ionic DevApp on your phone.
Connect your phone and computer to the same network.
ionic serve -c from the project root.
Open Ionic DevApp and lanuch Fedora app from the list of available apps.
Note: Network policies and firewalls may interfere with Ionic DevApp, in that case try on a different network Running unit tests
npm test runs all unit tests defined in the app.
Start the ionic dev server with
npm run ionic:serve -b. Wait for the dev
server to start.
In a different terminal window start the tests with
npm run e2e
