Exporting Your App

Working on your project locally

Every app you build in Creator is a standard Ionic / Angular app behind the scenes. If you'd like to export the code, you can download a ZIP file containing the code.

Learn How To Export a ZIP File

Some reasons for exporting a ZIP file would be:

  • You want to continue work on your app outside of Creator
  • You want to use your app along with the Ionic CLI.


Exporting as a ZIP file is one-way

If you export your app and make changes to your app code, you will not be able to re-import your app into Creator. You can, however, still build and package your app for app stores using the Ionic CLI. But you will not be able to re-import that app back into Creator.
