Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-3846) NPM install fails to produce a workable install
Date Mon, 17 Jun 2013 19:40:20 GMT


Filip Maj commented on CB-3846:

Ahh yes, so running {{build}} immediately after that upgrade would be the issue.

Since 2.8.16, the libraries are lazy loaded from a hidden directory in your home dir (as you
can see in the error in your situation). So, after upgrading, and going straight to {{build}},
the tools think the libraries should be under the lazy load directory, but since you never
called {{platform add}}, they're not actually there.

So, in your project, if you go to remove the ios platform and re-add it, it should work. Something
cd myproject
cordova platform rm ios
cordova platform add ios
cordova build
.. should work.

Let me know how that pans out for you.

> I tried to upgrade my version of Cordova to 2.8.19 using npm using the following command,
"sudo npm install -g cordova".  This appeared to work but it resulted in an incomplete install.
 When I try to build my application I get an error-> cp: no such file or directory: /Users/Joe/.cordova/lib/ios/cordova/2.8.0/CordovaLib/cordova.js
> Which is because /Users/Joe/.cordova/ is empty.
