wikitude CordovaError: Failed to fetch plugin

Hi i am trying to build an App that will use the wikitude plugin

I am building it in Ionic 3

But I cant install the plugin

I try adding the plugin like this:

$ ionic cordova plugin add

And try like this:

$ cordova plugin add

But I always get this error:

(node:14964) UnhandledPromiseRejectionWarning: CordovaError: Failed to fetch plugin via registry.

Probably this is either a connection problem, or plugin spec is incorrect.

Check your connection and plugin name/version/URL.

Error: cmd: Command failed with exit code 1 Error output:

Can you help me with this?

Thank you.


Are you working with the Ionic 3 plugin. If so, you will have to take up this issue maintainers of the Wikitude Ionic starter app.

We do not have any in-house Ionic competencies, which is why we cannot offer support in that regard.

Thx and greetings



Thank you for your response.

No, I am NOT working with the Ionic 3 plugin.

I am flowing your Setup Guide Cordova CLI.

On section 5 it seas:


Now add the Wikitude SDK to the project by installing the Wikitude Cordova Plugin
 $ cordova plugin add

 That's where I get the error.

Please help.

Thank you.


Does the same happen if you download the package from the SDK download package and follow the build instructions?



No I did not try.

It is much more complicated.

Y is the not github insolation working?

Please check it

Thank you.


We're not aware of any issues with buidling with the Cordova Plugin. It's one of our most used SDK versions and there weren't any reports recently with issues like this. This is why I wanted to make sure that you try the different ways to install. Still from your calls it looks like you're working with Ionic, which is not officially supported by Wikitude - you mentioned that you're building it in Ionic 3. Is this the case? If so, the issue might be related to your build environment.





I had the same problem, but have resolved it. Downloading the SDK from github and adding it from the local folder worked for me. The command line is

cordova plugin add <THE_LOCAL_PATH>

I thought adding the plugin manually is much more complicated but after opening an issue on the wikitude github, someone helped me out there.

Best regards.
