Can not install File Chooser plugin


#1

When I tried to install File Chooser plugin using

$ ionic plugin add --save http://github.com/don/cordova-filechooser.git

I got the following errors

Error: Failed to fetch plugin http://github.com/don/cordova-filechooser.git via registry.
Probably this is either a connection problem, or plugin spec is incorrect.
Check your connection and plugin name/version/URL.

My system information:

Cordova CLI: 7.0.0
Ionic Framework Version: 3.1.1
Ionic CLI Version: 2.2.3
Ionic App Lib Version: 2.2.1
Ionic App Scripts Version: 1.3.7
ios-deploy version: 1.9.1
ios-sim version: 5.0.13
OS: macOS Sierra
Node Version: v7.10.0
Xcode version: Xcode 8.3.2 Build version 8E2002

Works for me, so I suspect something is broken with your network setup, like a proxy that npm doesn’t understand how to use.

Thank you for your reply.

After downgrading Cordova from 7.0.0 to 6.5.0, it works fine.

Id doesn’t work for me either. I’m on Cordova 7.0.0 not sure the right solution is to downgrade?

How to downgrade Cordova 7.0.1 to 6.5.0…??

Thanks @Kuolung
It works fine after downgrading cordova 7.0.1 to 6.5.0 by below command-
npm install -g cordova@6.5.0

My project crashes whenever I step down to Cordova 6.5.0. And after 2 months, we still have plugin not installed error for Filechooser.
