This plugin is useful if your project contains plugins which have migrated to AndroidX or if you otherwise want to enable AndroidX in your Cordova Android platform project.
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
IMPORTANT: This plugin relies on Cordova hook scripts so will not work in Cloud Build environments such as Phonegap Build which do not support Cordova hook scripts.
Once the plugin is installed it will persistently enable AndroidX by editing the
gradle.properties file in your Cordova Android platform project.
If you encounter build failures after installing this plugin (or after manually enabling AndroidX) try installing cordova-plugin-androidx-adapter into your Cordova project; it will migrate any references to the legacy Android Support library in the Gradle config or Java source to use the new AndroidX mappings which should resolve build failures due to referencing legacy Support Library assets.
