iOS Question

console.log is not working in iOS Phonegap App even after adding the console plugin

I have created a Phonegap iOS App in Cordova CLI . I have added the console plugin and yes deviceready is called successfully but console.log is not working and does not print any thing in XCode log.

Plugin Installation :-

cordova -v


sudo cordova plugins add org.apache.cordova.console

Fetching plugin "org.apache.cordova.console" via plugin registry

Starting installation of "org.apache.cordova.console" for ios

Preparing ios project

org.apache.cordova.console installed on ios.

sudo cordova plugins ls

[ 'org.apache.cordova.console',









'org.apache.cordova.vibration' ]

Java Script :-

var app = {
initialize: function() {
bindEvents: function() {
document.addEventListener('deviceready', this.onDeviceReady, false);
onDeviceReady: function() {
receivedEvent: function(id) {
console.log('Device Ready Received'); //It is not working
alert("Device ready called"); //It is Working

Answer Source

I have solved this issue by doing these steps

Step 1 :

I Just copy a directory from another cordova project where console.log was working

sudo cp -r DIFF_CORDOVA_PROJECT_PATH/platforms/ios/www/plugins/org.apache.cordova.console CURRENT_CORDOVA_PROJECT_PATH/platforms/ios/www/plugins/

Step 2 :

Add the Code in CURRENT_CORDOVA_PROJECT_PATH/platforms/ios/www/cordova_plugins.js file under module.exports JSON array

    "file": "plugins/org.apache.cordova.console/www/console-via-logger.js",
    "id": "org.apache.cordova.console.console",
    "clobbers": [
    "file": "plugins/org.apache.cordova.console/www/logger.js",
    "id": "org.apache.cordova.console.logger",
    "clobbers": [

Step 3 :

Adding Meta data on the same cordova_plugins.js file in module.exports.metadata JSON Array :-

"org.apache.cordova.console": "0.2.7"
