Firebase App unable to Compile on Android with AAPT error

All of a sudden my App stopped compiling, I didn´t add any packages or anything new to the code, app is working ok on browser.

This is my ionic info:

@ionic/cli-utils  : 1.19.2
    ionic (Ionic CLI) : 3.20.0

global packages:

    cordova (Cordova CLI) : 8.0.0

local packages:

    @ionic/app-scripts : 3.2.1
    Cordova Platforms  : android 7.0.0 browser 5.0.4
    Ionic Framework    : ionic-angular 3.9.3

System:

    Android SDK Tools : 26.1.1
    Node              : v8.9.1
    npm               : 5.5.1
    OS                : Windows 10

Environment Variables:

    ANDROID_HOME : C:\Development\android-sdk

Misc:

    backend : pro

And this is the error I´m getting:

Yeah I think a lot of this are getting this now. Having the same problem too.
Google pushed an update out yesterday
https://developers.google.com/android/guides/releases
(why this breaks ionic/cordova so quickly is kind of amazing).

The original problem seems to do with something with firebase updated and some new version came out.
Once that gets updated then things because out of sync. Using android 26 or 17 but the new code I think it expecting 28.

What @helpmelearn says is correct. I know it’s a default policy of Google to introduce breaking changes and only support the Android ecosystem, so all plugin maintainers have to keep their plugins up-to-date.

But what is the right course of action here for us developers? Should we follow the releases of say e.g. Firebase and be prepared for breaking changes? This seems like a counter-intuitive way of plugins to depend on --> independent maintainers (you guys are doing god’s work) who depend on --> Google’s breaking changes?

We suddenly have a breaking build in our pipeline and we can’t release our app.

There should be a way to force a Firebase / PlayServices version that is stil compatible with SDK version 27 (and so Ionic 3) - any clue?

I’m having the same problem and I’ve been trying to solve it all day without success. Has anyone found a solution?

Same issue + 1

No solution so far…

On the same boat, been trying all day to fix this issue. Any help would be appreciated.

Finally found a solution, based on a response from SO:

I may have deleted platforms folder beforehand

  1. Run:
    ionic cordova platform rm android
  2. Run:
    ionic cordova platform add android@8.0.0
  3. Run:
    ionic cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-androidx
  4. Run:
    ionic cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-androidx-adapter
  5. Make sure your gradle.properties has:
    cdvMinSdkVersion=19
  6. Make sure your build.gradle has:
    project.ext { defaultBuildToolsVersion="28.0.3" //String defaultMinSdkVersion=19 //Integer - Minimum requirement is Android 4.4 defaultTargetSdkVersion=28 //Integer - We ALWAYS target the latest by default defaultCompileSdkVersion=28 //Integer - We ALWAYS compile with the latest by default }
  7. Make sure your confix.xml has:
    <preference name="android-minSdkVersion" value="19" />

This person explains the problem pretty well on his answer, so i encourage you to read it.

This has worked! Many thanks

thanks dude!. you saved my life :smiley:

this method works, thank you very much.

UnhandledPromiseRejectionWarning: Error [ERR_UNHANDLED_ERROR]: Unhandled error. (The platform “android” does not appear to be a valid cordova platform. It is missing API.js. android not supported.)

@JorgeU i am getting the above error while rrunning the app. do i need to update anyother plugin?

Did you not get any error related to the Crashlytics / Firebase / Fabric?:

ERROR - Crashlytics Developer Tools error.
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Crashlytics found an invalid API key: null.

What version of Firebase are you using now?

Yes i got the Crashlytics error as well

Using this version of firebase plugin works for me

run this commande :
ionic cordova plugin add https://github.com/dpa99c/cordova-plugin-firebase#GH-1057-April-05-android-build-issue

I am using angularfire 2 , and i did not use firebase plugin directly but getting the fontvariantSettings issue.

What version of google-services are you using?
Also had this and got fixed in google-services 4.2.0

I now reverted to these steps: https://github.com/arnesson/cordova-plugin-firebase/issues/1081#issuecomment-503135862, only had to remove and add the android platform again after I added his version of the cordova-plugin-firebase. Then these versions were in android/build.gradle:

classpath 'com.google.gms:google-services:4.2.0' // google-services dependency from cordova-plugin-firebase
classpath 'io.fabric.tools:gradle:1.25.4' // fabric dependency from cordova-plugin-firebase 

I can finally build again but I am worried about who will maintain the fixed cordova-plugin-firebase

For me the simplest working solution without modifying any plugins or cordova-android was to add the following to the build gradle (or to build-extras.gradle):

configurations.all {
    resolutionStrategy {
         force 'com.android.support:support-v4:27.1.1'
         force 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-tagmanager:16.0.8'
         force 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-base:16.1.0'
         force 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-tasks:16.0.1'
         force 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-basement:16.2.0'
         force 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-gcm:16.1.0'
         force 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-stats:16.0.1'
         force 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-location:16.0.0'
         force 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-auth:16.0.1'
         force 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-identity:16.0.0'
    }
}

it forces your apk to work as it did before the google breaking changes which I think is the safest way not to break other plugins.
