I am very, very confused here.
FAILURE: Build failed with an exception. * What went wrong: Execution failed for task ':mergeDebugAssets'. > java.lang.NullPointerException (no error message) * Try: Run with --stacktrace option to get the stack trace. Run with --info or --debug option to get more log output. C:\...\platforms\android\cordova\node_modules\q\q.js :126 throw e; ^
I SHOULD ADD: Using “ionic upload” then syncing the application yeilds proper results.
