Unquotted attribute value when build on mac machine

I am facing build error on mac. I tried deleting all the node_modules in /usr/local/bin/node_modules/ionic and reinstalling it again.
I have npm version 3.10.8, cordova version 6.3.1, ionic 1.7.6
Same build is working on windows machine with ionic build android command

ionic build ios

This error can be related to some of the plugin you are using in IOS. To figure it out try removing one plugin at a time and recompile.

cordova plugin remove plugin -name
Parsing /App/config.xml failed

This issue is solved. When you work on mac don’t open config.xml in TextEdit, it replaces " with something other ". so use Xcode editor to change files. Otherwise it will be hell to solve the issues.

I accidentally delete double quotes in the config.xml file. I restored the double quotes
