If your Cordova project contains plugins/libraries which reference both the Android Support Library and AndroidX, your Android build will fail because the two cannot live side-by-side in an Android build.
This enables a Cordova project for which AndroidX has been enabled (e.g. using cordova-plugin-androidx) to successfully build even if it contains plugins which reference the legacy Support Library.
The plugin uses a hook script to replace any legacy Support Library references:
- Gradle artifacts in
project.propertieswith new artifact mappings
- Class/package names in
AndroidManifest.xmlor the Java source code (of Cordova plugins) with new class mappings.
I dedicate a considerable amount of my free time to developing and maintaining this Cordova plugin, along with my other Open Source software. To help ensure this plugin is kept updated, new features are added and bugfixes are implemented quickly, please donate a couple of dollars (or a little more if you can stretch) as this will help me to afford to dedicate time to its maintenance. Please consider donating if you're using this plugin in an app that makes you money, if you're being paid to make the app, if you're asking for new features or priority bug fixes.
$ cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-androidx-adapter
IMPORTANT: This plugin relies on a Cordova hook script so will not work in Cloud Build environments such as Phonegap Build which do not support Cordova hook scripts.
WARNING: Do not install this plugin in a Cordova project in which AndroidX has not already been enabled or the build will fail.
Once the plugin is installed it will run on each
after_prepare hook in the Cordova build lifecycle, scanning and migrating any references to legacy Support Library entries in the
build.gradle or Java source code.
Note: this plugin operates only during the build process and contains no code which is bundled with or executed inside of the resulting Android app produced by the Cordova build process.
If AndroidX is not already enabled in your Cordova project you can persistently enable it in your Cordova Android platform project by installing my cordova-plugin-androidx plugin.
