I need to get app version but I have the following problem:

typescript: C:/projects/ionic/flannery/node_modules/@ionic-native/app-version/index.d.ts, line: 25

Type 'any' is not a constructor function type.

      L25:  export declare class AppVersion extends IonicNativePlugin {

My codes:

ionic client
ionic plugin add cordova-plugin-app-version


import { AppVersion } from '@ionic-native/app-version';
providers: [... AppVersion ... ]


import { AppVersion } from '@ionic-native/app-version';
 AppVersion.getVersionNumber().then((s) => {
            console.log('ver', s);


Cold you please helpme?


Have a look at the Usage example here:
You are missing it in the constructor and are using it wrong.

Yes, I followed this page but I have a problem with my dependencies.

When I exec “npm install --save @ionic-native/app-version” I receive this WARN:

npm WARN @ionic-native/app-version@3.7.0 requires a peer of @ionic-native/core@^3.6.0 but none was installed.

You need to update your ionic native core version.

Remove the "ionic-native" line from your package.json, remove your node_modules folder, then run npm install @ionic-native/core --save.

I done but when run my app I receive another error:

Runtime Error
Cannot find module "ionic-native"

I replaced my import
import {StatusBar, Splashscreen} from 'ionic-native';

import {StatusBar, Splashscreen} from '@ionic-native';

but I didn’t solve the problem

Solved the build

$ ionic plugin add --save cordova-plugin-statusbar
$ npm install --save @ionic-native/status-bar
$ ionic plugin add --save cordova-plugin-splashscreen
$ npm install --save @ionic-native/splash-screen

import { StatusBar } from ‘@ionic-native/status-bar’;
import { SplashScreen } from ‘@ionic-native/splash-screen’;

But now I receive:
`Uncaught (in promise): cordova_not_available`

AppVersion.getVersionNumber().then((s) => {
this.versionNumber = s;

here the solution: Ionic2 RC4 AppVersion error

Then you didn’t post your code correctly before - and that is the only thing we can work off here.

But great that you got it to work.
