please help guys what should i do?if i cant get it running on the mobile phone ill lose a potential big client of mine :anguished:


#2

Do you have the correct Android SDK installed? Android 6 API 23 ?


#3

Also are you trying to install the app with the command meteor run android-device --mobile-server http://your.local.host:port This is what makes it easy on Android devices


#4

@flean yeah i have it installed the sdk manager shows the top 3 tools installed.
i just ran this command:
meteor build ../zfoodapp --server localhost:3000
so you mean i should run it like you wrote above?


#5

@flean also i tried to run it on the emulator but it is far to slow to load that is why i want to directly try it on my device …i am on mac os el capitan and i dont know why but the command meteor run android-device cant find my device but i assure you my friend it is plugged in and the developper mode is on …i really need some help…the app is just a simple demo app so that i can show my client how awesome meteor is for coding once and deploy mostly everywhere but i cant even build an apk and if i show him the webapp i will surely get fired…lol


#6

fire up chrome and put this in the url chrome://inspect/#devices
do you see the device? Also, you need to put your local ip address in the server not localhost. Make sure the device is on the same wifi network.


#7

@flean i ran this command with my local address
meteor run android-device --mobile-server <my ip address>:3000

and here is what the console shows

#10

@flean i looked for a similar problem issue on the forum and i found this solution…

“For my issue rm -rf ~/.gradle solved it.”

It seems the building process stops for me when it hits the gradle download and gives a zip exception.As im kindof a newbie with macs ,can you show me how to run the above.thanks


#11

This is the above-mentioned forum post: Meteor 1.2.0.2 android problem

Unfortunately that didn’t work for me.


#12

i manually fixed it by downloading gradle myself into the folder on my mac and the rest of the build process went as smooth as expected


#13

Removing ~/.gradle directly fixed it for me.
rm -rf ~/.gradle
