All cordova plugin undefined on IOS


All my cordova plugins don’t work when I test on IOS devices.
They all work perfectly on android.

I did try to remove the platform and re-add it.
I did check that all plugins were in the platforms/projectName/plugins folder.
I did wrap my cordova calls in $ionicplatform.ready
They are all listed when I type cordova plugin list

What I get in my console log when I debug it is:

Error: undefined is not an object (evaluating 'window.plugins.allMyPlugins')
Or also, for the cordova camera, I get
Error: Can't find variable: Camera

Also, very weird, when I
$ionicPlatform.ready(function() {
to see what plugins actually get loaded, I only get:
Object [keyboard] => as if only they keyboard plugin was loaded…

I am using Cordova 5.4.1 (I cannot even build with the new cordova 6.0.0)

I am testing on Iphone 4.

Any help, I beg you all. This is the very last step for me to publish my app on apple store. :’(

I am still stuck with this issue, there doesn’t seem to be any workaround.

Still asking for help :slight_smile:


did you try to remove the the plugins
and reinstall them ?

and then run ionic build iOS

Thanks for taking the time.

Unfortunately yes, I tried that as well.

Removing them, adding them one by one, building etc.

Can I provide any other info that could help debug my situation?

wich plugins r u using

and do you use Xcode for running the app

and can you copy you’re config.xml pls

here are my plugins:

Also, to test my app and since I’m not familiar with xcode since I just started on mac, I build my .ipa using ionic package build ios, then I add it to my device using itunes (with a provisioning profile for the device)

Here is my config.xml:

Problem fixed thanks to @ItamarCohen who helped me a lot! :smiley:

Apparently, building with ionic package didn’t take into account all my plugins, and most of my changes… whereas building with Xcode properly takes everything into account, it now works smoothly. :slightly_smiling:

How can you help the problem?
As I am facing this problem and struggling for more than 2 days.

Well…what was the fix? I am having a similar issue but ONLY when testing my app via Ionic Serve to the browser, app works just fine on Phones and Simulators.
