When you develop a hybrid application with PhoneGap, Cordova, Ionic, CordovaChromeApps and any other framework that is built on top on PhoneGap, I can almost assure you that you’ll get this error. And it’s super annoying.
I think the issue is when you delete your platforms folder, or the files inside, and do a
platform add ... afterwards. This is at least how I reproduced it.
You’ll need to:
1) add the platforms with
cordova platform add ios android
2) remove them with
cordova platform remove ios android
3) add them again.
I know this is super weird, but I think it’s related to a faulty android.json and ios.json inside the platforms folder.
Following the steps above fixed the issue for me.
I would like to know if you encountered a similar error, if you solved it with this guide or you went a totally different path.
