Is node.js mandatory to install coradova


i am trying to install coradova but no success…where to install command line tool to execute the given commands.


Yeah node.js is mandatory for cordova.


i installed node.js and and sample project is created using cordova but while adding platform its throwing error…any one has an idea about it…i have successfully installed sdk also…


Coradova is bot configured cuccessfully and getting error even though every thing is latest I installed as mentioned above.

Commands working fine after installing node.js

  1. npm install -g ionic
    2.ionic start myApp
    3.install -g cordova ionic

    error while executing
    ionic platform ios android to add polateform

    ERROR: Unable to add plugins. Perhaps your version of Cordova is too old. Try up dating (npm install -g cordova), removing this project folder, and trying again.

is there anything wrong here??


So two things from the two post that stand out. Do you have ant installed? Seeing as your heavily involved with android I would expect to have, but hey I got to ask :smile:

Second, post, there errors seems to be that you do not have git installed on your system


yes my first release plan with android that’s why I install Android SDK platform which is required to build ionic with cordova.

I configured GIT and ant is also installed even added path to environment variable but still some conflict while adding platform.

I have lots of question about the architecture …I have doubt that in previously android studio I was using web view to load my recourses and native features but in coradova how we will write the code where is coradova webview we can see…

where can I get my all question clear about creating app using ionic Cordova… can I have any online session.


Hey @chakerveer, are you able to create applications using cordova only, e.g. using the command cordova create hello com.example.hello HelloWorld ?


yes Application created successfully in hello directory but after that we have commands to add platform that’s throwing error.


@chakerveer what does your bash profile look like?

touch ~/.bash_profile; open ~/.bash_profile

In the cordova docs, you need to provide a path to your sdk tools and platform tools
