Ionic 6 . When I add firebasex plugin. Ionic-native/http stops working

Issue

I was using FCM plugin earlier. But it stopped working on Android 11. So thought of switching to firebasex plugin. But as soon as I add it to my project. ionic-native/http stops working.

        "ANDROID_FIREBASE_PERF_GRADLE_PLUGIN_VERSION": "1.4.0"

App works perfectly until I run the command npm install @ionic-native/firebase-x –save . Then execution of code stops as soon as a http call happens. No error except for the timeout error is thrown, I have gone the logs of the server calls aren’t not hitting it.

Solution

Ionic Native Plugin Firebase X has conflict issues with Ionic Native HTTP because of OKHTTP Version.

There are two possible solutions here. First is by locking the version by adding the following to the config.xml:

<preference name"AndroidXEnabled" value"true" />
<preference name"OKHTTP_VERSION" value"3.12.1" />

Or you remove both plugin and re-add it with the OKHTTP specific variable:

ionic cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-firebasex --variable OKHTTP_VERSION3.12
ionic cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-advanced-http --variable OKHTTP_VERSION3.12
