Too many *.apk files in the project

Trying to find my .apk I found this strange tree structure:

$ find -name “*.apk”
./node_modules/webdriver-js-extender/built/spec/command_tests/totally_real_apk.apk
./node_modules/webdriver-js-extender/built/built/spec/command_tests/totally_real_apk.apk

Is it a normal case? How many such levels do you have in your project?

Hello,
Don’t know is normal or not, but what you want or you trying or which cmd did you fired provide details.

If you want to test build then try this cmd:
First add platform:

Ionic cordova platform add android

To build:

ionic cordova build android

It will found in this folder here:

E:\myApp\platforms\android\app\build\outputs\apk

I currently developing a big project and my search results in a similar appearance of apk’s. So no reason to worry, The one you are looking for, your own android Apk, is under

\platforms\android\app\build\outputs\apk

Yeah, it’s clear (all files totally_real_apk.apk have zero size)

But this folder tree looks like a result of some recursive script

My goal was to quickly find the apk to share it with the team, no problem with this

My doubt is regarding this multi-level subtree looking like a result of some wrong script

Any chance some of these issues are related?

Yes, the last one directly relates to my case:

These files almost don’t bother me, except I’m worried about this module
