Messing around with Cordova I stumbled upon the following exception when building the app for Android:
A problem occurred configuring root project 'android'. > All flavors must now belong to a named flavor dimension. Learn more at https://d.android.com/r/tools/flavorDimensions-missing-error-message.html
The almighty folks over at Stackoverflow suggest to update the
build.gradle and add a
flavorDimensions parameter into the
android section. As this smells like a dirty workaround for an issue that should (as always) not be happening in the first place, I found some deeper digging into this topic from Dave Alden. To sum it up:
email@example.com requires Gradle v4, but
cordova-plugin-crosswalk-webview is incompatible with Gradle 4.
This leaves you with 3,5 options:
7+: This might mess up all your other plugins as they did some breaking changes (that’s why I still had to stick to
6.4.0). Quite a lot of Cordova plugins are not yet compatible with Cordova v7+ as of today.
cordova-androideven further: This has the risk of some other side-effects, missing stability and security updates, etc.
- Downgrade Gradle to v3: This might lead to incompatibilities with e.g.
- Abandon Cordova altogether and switch to React Native, Xamarin or Weex… but yeah.
