Ionic Build Android Fails


#1

I am attempting to build an android project so that I can push it to my phone for testing on OSX. However, I get this stacktrace and failure:

The directory is there but for some reason it keeps failing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


#2

I can’t be the only one that has had this problem can I?


#3

@jacksonkr_ provided the answer in an unrelated thread. It seems to be with how ionic is pulling down the libraries.


#4

I’m confused. I’m guessing you’re having the same problem too?


#5

Could be this issue: https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=176488
If you’re using SDK Tools 24.3.2 try reverting to 24.3.1 or 24.3


#6

No, but following the steps you laid out to resolve the unrelated problem from the other thread fixed mine.
I needed to exclude the ionic add android command.
