Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-13741) Platform restoration not installing all plugins
Date Tue, 09 Jan 2018 09:44:00 GMT
Kate Miháliková created CB-13741:

             Summary: Platform restoration not installing all plugins
                 Key: CB-13741
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: cordova-cli
    Affects Versions: cordova@7.0.0
         Environment: node v6.9.4 and v7
npm v5.5.1 and 5.6.0
cordova CLI v7.1.0 and 8.0.0
            Reporter: Kate Miháliková

Cordova CLI of version 7 and 8 is not installing some dependencies when restoring the android
platform using {{cordova prepare android}} when a dependency of a plugin is explicitly listed
in {{dependencies}} of {{package.json}}.

[Test case|]:

* [{{config.xml}}|]
* [{{package.json}} that exhibits the bug|]
* [result of running {{cordova prepare android}} with the problematic {{package.json}}|]
* [result of running {{cordova prepare android --verbose}} with the problematic {{package.json}}|]
** {{cordova-plugin-network-information}} is not installed
* [{{package.json}} that works fine|]
* [result of running {{cordova prepare android}} with the working {{package.json}}|]
** {{cordova-plugin-network-information}} gets installed fine

Please note the difference of line 27 of those logs - the one with the bug refers to the wrong
plugin, thus skipping installing of the right one. It consistently works this way for me:

* let's create plugin X (that depends on plugin A) and Y
* have plugin X and plugin Y in {{config.xml}} and in {{cordova.plugins}} of {{package.json}}
* have all plugins X, A, and Y in {{dependencies}} of {{package.json}}
* remove platforms/ and plugins/ folders from previous install
* doesn't matter if {{npm install}} is run or if node_modules/ folder is deleted
* run {{cordova prepare android}}
* plugin Y (the one that is installed after plugin X, the plugin with a dependency) is not
installed at all
