How to add Android to Phonegap Platforms version 3

After much digging, i believe that this problem is related to me not having any platforms added for phonegap to build from. This is missing from their documentation.

When i trying to add a platofrm phonegap

Running code

C:\var\www\sexdiaries.co.uk\sexdiaries>phonegap platform add andriod
[error] 'platform add andriod' is not a node C:\Users\Hutber\AppData\Roaming\npm\node_m
See 'node C:\Users\Hutber\AppData\Roaming\npm\node_modules\phonegap\bin\phonegap.js help'


Platforms

Platforms:

keyword | local environment | remote environment
-------------------|-------------------|-------------------
android | ? | ?
blackberry | ? (BlackBerry 10) | ? (BlackBerry 6)
ios | ? | ?
symbian | ? | ?
webos | ? | ?
wp7 | ? | ?
wp8 | ? | ?

Answer

For some reason, you can't add platforms in an obvious way so i found this:

You need to add platform to work with, whilst the documentation is so very very poor:

Command

   phonegap build android

build

C:\var\www\sexdiaries.co.uk\sexdiaries>phonegap build android
[phonegap] detecting Android SDK environment...
[phonegap] using the local environment
[phonegap] adding the Android platform...
 [warning] missing library cordova/android/3.0.0
[phonegap] downloading https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf?p=cordova-android.git;a=snapshot;h=3.0.0;sf=tgz...
[phonegap] compiling Android...
[phonegap] successfully compiled Android app

Then you are good to go, doing an import with Andriod Studio will also work now as you have a project to work with :)

Fantastic.
