Getting Build Error for Cordova plugin integration on Visual Studio 2015 TACo

This is regarding Cordova based universal app development using Visual Studio 2015 - Tools for Apache Cordova (TACo).

Here is the sample code which I am trying to run: AngularJSToDo app. In this app, there is GeoLocation Cordova plugin is being used. In config.xml:

<vs:plugin name="org.apache.cordova.geolocation" version="0.3.10" />

While building application for Windows Phone Emulator 8.1, it throws an error after below process:

------ Adding plugin: cordova-plugin-geolocation@2.2.0

1> Calling plugman.fetch on plugin "cordova-plugin-geolocation@2.2.0"

1> Fetching plugin "cordova-plugin-geolocation@2.2.0" via plugin registry

1>MDAVSCLI : error : read ECONNRESET

This error appears after a long time fetching event. I have already tried installing particular plugin using "npm" command through command prompt, but VS build automatically clears older plugins and re-download and install latest ones.

In error section, it says


Please guide me what should be done to resolve this error from Visual Studio build.



This issue had been resolved by restarting node(npm) server. Below are the steps what I did.

  • Terminal - Ctrl+C to stop the npm server
  • Go to particular project folder, and add the plugins using below command

    cordova plugin add <plugin-name>

  • Restart the node server: remotebuild

Hope this helps to others.
