"Could not find method google() for arguments [] on repository container"


#1

I’m attempting to update a legacy Ionic v1 app to include push notifications.

I’ve set up my app with firebase, and for v1 support I went with adding phonegap-plugin-push@1.9.0.

I’m now unable to build for Android due to this build.gradle error. I have no idea what it means, and search results have not helped me as of yet.

Here is my build.gradle file (error occurs at line 46):

#2

I’m seeing the same when adding the firebase plugin to an ionic v3 project. Have you found anything helpful on this yet?


#3

This link is a long thread, but it ended up helping me resolve the issue. I’m using an older Cordova CLI, so I just forced adding a more recent android platform version and it worked (e.g. ionic cordova platform add android@7.1.0)


#4

brassier - this worked like charm. Adding version “ionic cordova platform add android@7.1.0” … after almost a day trying to get ionic 3 app to built. Thank you!!
