PhoneGap Android Build Failure


#1

Without making any app changes, my Android Build started failing a few days ago. It fails even if I leave the viewer out… iOS is fine…

I put this on the PhoneGap site and have not received any useful replies.

I would appreciate any help you can provide.

Thank you,
Warren

#2

PhoneGap is constantly tinkering with its components. It’s a moving target. By default, it builds using cli-6.5.0. The latest version is cli-8.0.0. Some of the components have been updated, so they only work with later versions of PhoneGap.
