Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-12692) version output
Date Sat, 29 Apr 2017 17:59:04 GMT


Kerri Shotts commented on CB-12692:

Mmm... totally agree here; {{-v}} should only ever report version numbers. However, I would
want dev consensus on this before changing current behavior.

> When doing an npm install cordova, and then typing cordova -v, only the version number
should be outputted. It's strange and seemingly unique behavior to show the telemetry warning.
> There are some issues on the ionic CLI team's github page (
and with a PR to regex parse it (
from ionic's end, but I actually don't think that should be necessary.
> Feel free to disagree and close this, but I'm not aware of any other npm package that
outputs anything other than the version number with -v / --version.
> If the telemetry warning is important, it might take longer to resolve the issue. But
in my mind that's a separate issue, perhaps remove the telemetry warning entirely from -v
output, and then open a new issue about the telemetry warning...?
