I’m struggling with cordova/npm clis errors.
I noticed my Ionic1 application developed 5 months ago (which use crosswalk-webview) works with Android 6 but crash with Android 7 (it seems a known bug).
I tried to remove and re-add crosswalk-webview:
cordova plugin rm cordova-plugin-crosswalk-webview
cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-crosswalk-webview
I get an npm error on adding the plugin:
npm verb stack Error: EPERM: operation not permitted, rename...
the build fails:
ionic cordova build --release androidwith the same error:
Error: EPERM: operation..
since several plugin are outdated, I thought to remove and re-add the whole platform android
cordova platform rm android
Almost 1 hour later the command is still stuck so I terminated it.
Now if I try to add android as platform I get an error:
Error: EPERM: operation not permitted, rename...
Now my project is pretty broken: no platform and no way to build it…and I’m in very hurry about that…
I tried to downgrade npm, I tried the following 5.6.0, 5.5.1, 5.4.2, 5.3.0, 5.0.0, 4.6.0.
I reinstalled node, cordova, ionic, I cleared npm cache.
I do not solved. It’s clearly an NPM issue, maybe here somewhere knows how to solve…
At the current state, if I try:
cordova platform add android
Error: EPERM: operation not permitted, rename 'C:\nodejs\myapp\node_modules\.staging\cordova-android-78ae6d2a\node_modules\cordova-registry-mapper'
Simply NPM is became a huge blob of unstable code. I always use
yarn in my nodejs (non Ionic) projects, but in this case Cordova seems still on npm…
