Generating and APK file. Error?

Hi All

I am using following to create an APK file.

ionic cordova build --release android

but i am getting the following error

BUILD FAILED in 17s
cmd: Command failed with exit code 1 Error output:
FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

  • What went wrong:
    A problem occurred configuring project ‘:CordovaLib’.

No toolchains found in the NDK toolchains folder for ABI with prefix: mips64el-linux-android

  • Try:
    Run with --stacktrace option to get the stack trace. Run with --info or --debug option to get more log output.

  • Get more help at https://help.gradle.org

BUILD FAILED in 17s
[ERROR] An error occurred while running subprocess cordova.

    cordova build android --release exited with exit code 1.

    Re-running this command with the --verbose flag may provide more information.

Any advice how to solve the issue

Regards

I’m expecting you are using Android NDK Revision r18 and in this version, GCC is no longer supported.

Download and unzip Android NDK, Revision r17c from this location: NDK Revision History

Then before you start running your ionic build: ionic cordova build --release android set or override your ANDROID_NDK_HOME environment variable to the Android NDK, Revision r17c.

Ex.
$export ANDROID_NDK_HOME=/android-ndk-r17c/
$ionic cordova build --release android

I Hope this will help you to fix your build issue for android

Thanks for your answer, it really worked out.
I only need to copy the missing items from r17c version to the existing one( r18b ).

Thanks a lot etpi, this solved my issue.
