Last night we didi android platform remove and platfor add.

Anyway, it doesn’t work and we have always the same error.


#13

You didn’t post your ionic info output.
You didn’t specify your Android Studio version.

The error you posted, when do you get that? Another build after re-adding the platform?


#14

You didn’t post which Android Studio version you have installed.

Your “Android target” output doesn’t include android-27. Did you get the same output as @lalogrosz with “Download https…” or only the same error?

Yes, my situation is the same as from lalogrosz. Last night we were working as usual and there was no problems, until the last build when we saw that gradle did some updates… After that we could not build any more with the error cannot find android fonts. ( the same thing lalogrosz descirbed ). We did androdi platform remove and android platform add - without errors, but when we try to build again the same error came out.

I dont know how to get Android Version info. Please, can you help me telling me how to do it?


#17

@borisisaic: If you haven’t installed Android Studio, then you don’t have a version.


#18

Can you create a new project with ionic start (use the blank template) and add the Android platform and try to build it?

If this doesn’t work:
Can you create a new Cordova project with cordova create, then add the Android platform with cordova platform add android and try to build with cordova build android --debug?

Post the output please.

(This is trying to check if Ionic is connected at all or if this is a Cordova issue)


#19

Hi @Sujan12, with a newly created project.
I am able to add platform with no error, and very happy that it can build with and without plugin cordova-plugin-crosswalk-webview
P/s: I notice it uses cordova-android@6.3.0 instead of cordova-android@6.2.2


#20

Well, I am a junior programmer and I am not sure if I can do the things you ask me. I will have to wait for senior programmer to try to do the things you described. Anyway, last night we try a lot of things, using options like --debug, etc… - and we also try to re-build another project that we already did in the past. But without success. The same error came up. So right now we cannot build any android project.
