Crosswalk Integration Beta in Ionic CLI (v1.3.2)


Is it true that not all Cordova plugins are supported by the Crosswalk engine?
I found this list of compatible pugins but it seems already out of date:

In my application at least the org.apache.cordova.statusbar plugin is not working.



@grahamharper This may be an issue with the plugin itself, as the cordova-android version we are using for crosswalk is a unreleased version.

@Alex Same thing as above. Since we are using Cordova-Android 4.0, which isn’t released yet, not every plugin is guaranteed to work. When the cordova team release 4.0 officially, then the core plugins will be updated.


@grahamharper - I’m not sure what spurs that error.

Does your file still have the references for those added projects?


Yea it does. It looks like they were added to the list of dependencies in build.gradle too.


Looks awesome.
Few problem though :

  • Back button does not close modal
  • SocialSharing plugin does not work
  • Icon and splashscreen are gone ( I already had crosswalk so this might be a conf thing)
  • Getting error “0 333147 error Uncaught Error: Error calling method on NPObject.,, Line: 924” but that does not stop the app ( might be useful though )
  • CLI does not detect that crosswalk is already installed ( you can run add crosswalk many time it’ll re download ). Very minor issue I know :slight_smile:

How can we check if crosswalk is installed ( and see version )


@nicraboy - sorry for the late response.

If you set an ENV setting or pass a setting in-line, it will produce two, yes.


Idk why this starts giving two different apks

I wanted to use this in an existing project and everything went fine until :dexDebug

Nothing special, I updated ionic, added crosswalk, and ‘ionic run android’ and this happened:

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

* What went wrong:
Execution failed for task ':dexDebug'.

My bad if the formatting is bad, I’m on my phone.


@mhartington, thanks for your quick response, can we make it possible for user to integrate different version of Crosswalk which they want to?


As far as different versions per android version, not sure how that would work.
But as far as saying crosswalk 8, 9, 10, or 11, yes that will be available soon


Good news! @mhartington, thank you so much!

by ionic build android --release


How exactly would you do this? Is just by passing ‘BUILD_MULTIPLE_ARCHS=true’ as a flag to ‘ionic build or ionic run’?


by ionic build android --release


when I run in genymotion it go’s very well, but I cant build with release the error is

/Users/game-netease/Desktop/ios/webapp/rm3.0/rm3_mobile/platforms/android/res/values/multiimagechooser_strings_en.xml:7: Error: “discard” is not translated in “de” (German), “es” (Spanish), “fr” (French), “hu” (Hungarian), “ja” (Japanese), “ko” (Korean) [MissingTranslation]
