Plugin to Install an APK using Cordova?
I am developing a Cordova app, and I need it to install a downloaded APK (It can also install it from a URL). I Have tried several plugins and none of the worked. Here is the list of the plugins I have tried and why they have failed:
cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-apkinstaller
Failed because it only works for Android 7, and I need it to work with Android 6
cordova plugin add https://github.com/shougao/cordova-plugin-apkinstaller
Failed while running the project with
cordova run android the error says
error: diamond operator is not supported in -source 1.6 even though I'm using Java 8 on my machine
cordova plugin add https://github.com/simbas/cordova-plugin-app-installer
Failed to add because there is no
package.json in the plugin, while searching for a solution, I found out I could downgrade to Cordova 7 and use the
--nofetch parameter to add the plugin. It solved the problem of adding the plugin, but every plugin that I add using the
--nofetch option causes the application to stop firing the
Any help on fixing these errors or pointing out to how can I install an APK using cordova will be very appreciated.
