Here is the current CLI documentation, in which there is no “platform” command.

@rapropos Okay, what i should to do for fix it? I want to build my apk app but can’t because this command not found.

Read that documentation page and decide which command on it does what you want.

Hi @rapropos. I read it a week ago and I am trying to understand this, but I could not overcome this problem so I came to the forum. If you can pinpoint where there is a mistake and I will focus on that paragraph. Currently, I am reading and trying without success.

@rapropos I think I understood my mistakes
Now I used an command: ionic cordova build android

I get the following error message

ng.cmd run app:build

Generating ES5 bundles for differential loading…
An unhandled exception occurred: Call retries were exceeded
See “C:\Users\Rasheed\AppData\Local\Temp\ng-1JKWf8\angular-errors.log” for further details.
[ERROR] An error occurred while running subprocess ng.

    ng.cmd run app:build exited with exit code 127.

Is there anything i must to do?

It sort of depends on what runtime environments you need to support. Many suggestions are in this issue.
