Crosswalk and ngCordova Local Notifications

Unsure whether this is a problem with Ionic, Crosswalk or ngCordova.

When building with the ngCordova plugin installed, a error is returned:

/ error: cannot find symbol
webView.evaluateJavascript(js, null);
symbol: method evaluateJavascript(String,)
location: variable webView of type CordovaWebView
/ug/ug-app/platforms/android/src/de/appplant/cordova/plugin/localnotification/ error: cannot find symbol Runnable(){
symbol: method post()
location: variable webView of type CordovaWebView

This only happens when the Local Notifications plugin is installed and when using crosswalk.
Without crosswalk it works
Without Local Notification it works.

I am using Ionic Framework Beta 13.


Got exactly the same error … I think it’s a problem with the plugin, but I don’t know how to fix it … :frowning:

found a temporary fix here :


Any solution?! Any alternative plugin?!

I couldn’t get cordova-plugin-local-notifications to work either (it would silently cause controllers not to load on my iOS device…) so I use an alternative:

Seems to work great.
