"Platform IOS already added" error now appearing on IOS package builds


#1

A recent change to Ionic pro’s package build is causing this error during this fastlane step:
cordova platform add ios --nofetch

Exit status of command ‘cordova platform add ios --nofetch’ was 1 instead of 0. (FastlaneCore::Interface::FastlaneShellError)
Error: Platform ios already added.

This can be fixed by ensuring ios is not an platform in config.xml but this isn’t practical.

I’ve same problem, have you solved ?
thanks


#3

To get around the problem i removed the ios platform with:

cordova platform remove ios

and then committed the code to git and sent to ionic:

git push ionic master

Note: for ionic pro to correctly build i had to have at least one platform added. So:

cordova platform add android

I’m not sure if the ionic team are monitoring the forums for these type of issues (@mhartington ?)


#4

Thanks for replay, i submitted now a request to https://ionic.zendesk.com/hc/en-us


#5

Had the same issue today. Previously the project worked fine, now it started failing on Ionic Pro because platform ios already exists.
Removing the platform, as @tarnawsky suggested, didn’t help me.

What helped was selecting XCode 9 instead of XCode 10 when starting the package build in Ionic Pro. Looks like a bug, doesn’t it?


#6

Hey @whizai

Ran into the same issue just as of today. I tried changing the build to XCode 9 and it still gave me the same error, I even removed the IOS from the config as well and the same issue occurred, I don’t really know whats up, but this issue is preventing me to get another build up for my beta users on my app.

Any suggestions or ideas of trying?

Here is the exact Error I get on the IOS build using XCode 9 and the ios platform not in my config.

@shaderock18, why do you think it is the same issue? I don’t see Platform ios already added error in your logs.

Your error is here:

Failed to install ‘cordova-plugin-ionic’: CordovaError: Version of installed plugin: “cordova-plugin-ionic-webview@3.1.2” does not satisfy dependency plugin requirement “cordova-plugin-ionic-webview@^2.1.4”. Try --force to use installed plugin as dependency.

@whizai, Ah now looking at the error a little closer I see that it does relate to a different issue. Thanks.
