Firebase.h file not found

Ionic 3 app with cordova-plugin-firebasex works fine in Android, but in iOS gives the error when doing a build
'Firebase.h' file not found
referring to FirebasePlugin.m.
Any idea how to resolve this? I’ve tried removing and re-adding the plugin, and also re-adding the iOS platform, but no luck!

Thanks.

Same issue…The error is gone after I did changes from https://ionic.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360010049673-Managing-plugins-using-CocoaPods-in-Ionic-Appflow-

but I am now facing a different issue where is fails with following error

The following build commands failed:
CompileC /Users/ionic/Library/Developer/Xcode/DerivedData/RisingBee-bjesvdiqduwsvqgfbjemswfvtnep/Build/Intermediates.noindex/ArchiveIntermediates/RisingBee/IntermediateBuildFilesPath/RisingBee.build/Release-iphoneos/RisingBee.build/Objects-normal/armv7/FirebasePlugin.o /Users/ionic/builds/project-0/platforms/ios/RisingBee/Plugins/cordova-plugin-firebasex/FirebasePlugin.m normal armv7 objective-c com.apple.compilers.llvm.clang.1_0.compiler
(1 failure)

Now again getting the firebase.h issue.

It went away after removing both iOS and Android platforms and reinstalling. Try it and see if it works. Good luck.

make sure you have the following :

  1. cordova version>=9
  2. ios version >=5

And run the following commands in terminal

sudo gem install cocoapods-dependencies

cd platforms/ios/
pod dependencies

ionic cordova build ios

And then open the following path in Xcode:

platforms ->ios YourProject.xcworkspace(notYourProject.xcodeproj` )

And run the app from xCode

Thanks, I tried that but the error was still there.

I came across this solution that worked https://stackoverflow.com/questions/57218066/build-failed-xcode-10-cordova-firebase-project

But now I’m getting Module ‘FirebaseInstanceID’ not found error. Any ideas?
