Subject [jira] [Resolved] (CB-7280) "cordova add platform android" throws a confusing exception
Date Mon, 01 May 2017 18:45:04 GMT


Joe Bowser resolved CB-7280.
    Resolution: Incomplete

This looks incomplete, and I'm not sure if this is an issue with the current version of Cordova,
so I'm going to close this for now.

> I do have the Android SDK installed, and I don't know whether it is set up properly in
order for cordova to find it. I followed installation instructions which, by the way, are
extremely convoluted (every documentation page tells you there is a requirement that you needs
to install first and links you to another page and these links eventually lead to a loop).
> If the exception above is supposed to be telling me that the Android SDK cannot be found,
then that's not the proper way of informing me of that. A more meaningful error message should
be given (if that is the cause of the exception).
