I try to get this working and it’s driving me nuts:
$ cordova platform add android
The output is:

If did run the command
android this are all the things I installed:
I also did:
But it doesn’t help 🙁
Could someone help.
Android SDK is not your target Android version. Target Android version 19 is the API level for android Kitkat.So in you SDK manager check if you have Android 4.4.2(API 19) installed. If you want your target API version to be different then change it in ANdroidManifest.xml
<uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="16" android:targetSdkVersion="18" />
Edit these lines. Here
android:targetSdkVersion is your Android version that you are targeting.
1) Went into the SDK Manager (typing
android into the terminal, assuming it’s in your file path)
2) Selected box next to Android 4.4.2 (API 19)
3) Clicked button
Install 8 packages
4) Ran original command (in this example
cordova platform add android, although it could be
ionic platform add android, depending on what you’re working with)
I too was getting the same error 19. I have no idea about AndroidManifest.xml and where it is supposed to be.
In my case, I fixed the error by running the ‘android’ command from the console, opening the Android 4.4.2 (API19) tree and installing the SDK Platform.
After this was installed the cordova platform add android command worked as desired.
Further to this I had to install a few other elements of API19 to be able to create an android emulator:
- ARM EABI v7a System Image
- Intel x86 Atom System Image
- Google APIs (x86 System Image)
- Google APIs (ARM System Image)
I could then create an emulator based on API19 using the Android Virtual Device (AVD) Manager that is included in the android SDK bundle.
I also had to change project.properties in the same directory
Here is documentation on how you set up an AndroidManifest.xml document.
Every app should have one.
If your having issues installing the package, ensure you are running ‘Android Central’ as an administrator… took me 30 mins to work it out!!
