ionic config get

Print config values

$ ionic config get [property] [options]

This command reads and prints configuration values from the project's ./ionic.config.json file. It can also operate on the global CLI configuration (~/.ionic/config.json) using the --global option.

For nested properties, separate nest levels with dots. For example, the property name integrations.cordova will look in the integrations object for the cordova property.

Without a property argument, this command prints out the entire config.

For multi-app projects, this command is scoped to the current project by default. To operate at the root of the project configuration file instead, use the --root option.

If you are using this command programmatically, you can use the --json option.

This command will sanitize config output for known sensitive fields (disabled when using --json).


The property name you wish to get


  • --global: Use global CLI config (or -g)

Advanced Options

  • --json: Output config values in JSON

  • --root: Operate on root of ./ionic.config.json
