Help me to deploy! Ionic Vue

In my files, I have already the android folder but in android/app/build/ the only file there is .npmkeep where can I get the apk? I don’t want to open it using android studio, I just want only the apk. Help me guys

You first run ionic cap build android to build your JS project and copy it over to the Android folder. That command will open up Android Studio.

From there in Android Studio, you go to Build -> Build Bundles / APKs or Build -> Generate Signed Bundle / APK.
