Ionic 2 - Visual Code - Extensions

When beginning development with Ionic in Visual Code, following extensions would save lot of effort and time -


Ionic2 - New Project - Error - no such file or directory, open '..\index.html'

After creating a new ionic 2 project, serving project for first time, gives error 
 Error - no such file or directory, open '..\index.html'

Resolution - 
- CLI version should be 2.1.0 not beta. If you run ionic -v and have anything other than 2.1.0, run:
npm uninstall -g ionic
npm install -g ionic

Visual Studio Ionic 2 - Error (DEP10402) : Could not locate the start page. You may need to build your project.

On creating new Ionic 2 project templates with Visual Studio 2015, build is failing with the Error  (DEP10402) : Could not locate the start page. You may need to build your project.

Reason - There is no files in www folder by the build.

Resolution -

Update your ionic app scripts to the latest version. It is 1.0.0 for RC5 release.
npm install @ionic/app-scripts@latest --save-dev
