Plugins not working - using latest CLI

I built an app with Ionic 1 and released it. The following plugins worked fine:

  • Sharing
  • Email
  • In app browser - to open a webpage in the phone browser

With the latest version of Ionic installed the release apk and ipa don’t have these working.

Is there some reason?

What is your ionic info output?
What does “don’t have these working” mean. Do you get an error message? What did you change with the update of your app?

This give me an error:

[WARN] Error with ./www/lib/ionic/version.json file: FILE_NOT_FOUND, trying 

and then this:

cli packages: (/usr/local/lib/node_modules)

    @ionic/cli-utils  : 1.19.0
    ionic (Ionic CLI) : 3.19.0

global packages:

    cordova (Cordova CLI) : 8.0.0 
    Gulp CLI              : CLI version 3.9.1 Local version 3.9.1

local packages:

    Cordova Platforms : ios 4.5.4
    Ionic Framework   : ionic1 1.3.4


    Node  : v8.9.3
    npm   : 5.5.1 
    OS    : macOS High Sierra
    Xcode : Xcode 9.2 Build version 9C40b 

By ‘not working’ I mean the installed ipa and apk (on an iPhone 6 with the latest iOS and a Pixel XL with the latest OS) the buttons don’t do anything anymore.

Did you remote debug the problem on the device already? Follow these instructions here to debug the problem in Safari dev tools: Look at the console tab for errors.

I’ve copied over everything to a new laptop and reinstalled the plugins.

All working now.

Thanks for the help though.
