Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-8279) VIsual Studio Crashes When Importing Plugin to Cordova Project
Date Tue, 13 Jan 2015 22:40:35 GMT


Victor Adrian Sosa Herrera commented on CB-8279:

I tried the above command on a Cordova CLI-created project and it was installed succesfully.

Calling plugman.fetch on plugin ""
Fetching plugin "" via git clone
Fetching plugin via git-clone command: git clone ""
Plugin "" fetched.
Copying fetched plugin over "/home/victor/Hybrid/browsertest/plugins/com.tokbox.cordova.opentok"...
Plugin "com.tokbox.cordova.opentok" fetched.

My next advise, if possible in VS, is that you create the application in CLI, add the plugin
using CLI and then import it into VS. If VS doesn't offer this functionality, or something
alike to import existing Cordova projects into VS,  then I'm affraid you are stuck on MS support
because this is not a problem on either Cordova CLI nor the plugin you are trying to install
(at least no in the install point of view). There is nothing to be fixed on Cordova side.

Sorry for the bad news.

VS2015 and it it crashes VS every time. Here's a screenshot:
and here's the full error that is generated which happens whether you use the remote or local
import option and also using the URL of the GIT as suggested on this particular plugin page (Exact same thing.. Blank info, VS crash but
installing the plugins from the "Core" list works.):

a proper Cordova project. I've also tried using the "Local" option in VS and it doesn't work.
You can easily verify this for free by installing VS2015 Preview and trying to import your
plugin to a project (Right click config.xml -> Design Mode -> Plugins.
> I've tried everything I can think of. This is the best way to dev and test Cordova apps
but without importing plugins It's useless in many situations.
