No Cordova platforms listed in config.xml


#1

ionic upload

used to work; now it is giving:

No Cordova platforms listed in config.xml. Nothing to prepare.

You can save your installed platforms to config.xml with the ionic cordova platform save command.

Running that save command has no effect

Any ideas?


#2

Post your ionic info output please.
Post your config.xml please.

Thanks.

This is strange. Ionic recognizes the platform, and it is definitely listed in there.

Can you run ionic cordova platform list and cordova platform list please?

Then also ionic upload --verbose and post the complete output please.


#5

I’m having the same issue as well. Ionic tries to add my iOS platform every time I run ionic cordova build ios.

If this provides any help, I began receiving this message after installing the Firebase Analytics Native Plugin.

Here’s my output after running ionic cordova build ios:

$ ionic cordova build ios
> cordova platform add ios --save
✖ Running command - failed!
[WARN] Platform already added. Saving platforms to config.xml.

       You can save your installed platforms to config.xml with the ionic 
       cordova platform save command.

Thanks a bunch.

Interesting.

Can you post the same things I asked for?

Run this with --verbose please.
Then cordova build ios --debug.
Then cordova prepare --debug.

(Lot of commands, but we have to collect some data what is going on here)


#7

In fact, I finally got it to work. This is what I did:

ionic cordova platform rm ios
ionic cordova plugin rm phonegap-plugin-push
ionic cordova plugin rm cordova-plugin-firebase-analytics
sudo gem install cocoapods
pod setup
ionic cordova plugin add phonegap-plugin-push --variable SENDER_ID="XXXXXXX
ionic cordova platform add ios

I don’t know if @jcsubmit had the same issue with Firebase Analytics and the Push Plugin, but I hope this helps someone out there. For your reference:

This might cause problems if you decide to publish the app - you should provide a value on installation of the plugin.

Thanks for the advice! I’ll promptly look into it.

After updating to cli 3.6.0 and ionic 3.9.2 I get a previously unencountered error with ionic upload:

Fails to upload the snap shot.
Does however work with --nobuild flag

here’s my output:

#11

As the error messages tell you, you don’t have a platform installed in your project. Run ionic cordova platform add ios or ... android to add these so cordova prepare can actually prepare anything before upload.


#12

Was cordova prepare recently added to ionic upload? Just want to pin down the surce of this error.
I’ll be switching to the new git based version soon, along with the new ionic view client.


#13

Yes, I think this is a recent addition.


#14

Try these:
ionic cordova platform add android --save
If that fails, can you show us the error?
You could use this as resolution if that one fails:
cordova platform add android --save

Capture

I’m unable to run my app on my Android R1 HD device. Debugging is on. I’ve been looking up solutions left and right having no luck.


#16

Please try this

cordova platform add android --nofetch

ionic cordova platform add android --save, ionic cordova prepare android --save?
