@manojdcoder - I really appreciate your responses - thanks for taking the time!
Yes, last night I realized I just needed to look at the dependencies in package.json. I cd’ed into the src folder and ran
tns plugin add nativescript-angular
and that added everything needed so I could successfully run the build command,
npm run ngc. At, least, I think so.
I went back to my own project and ran
tns plugin remove nativescript-urlhandler
tns plugin add ~/Documents/NativeScriptProjects/nativescript-urlhandler/src
Both commands ran successfully. But, I can’t tell if the code I added is receiving control or not. I added
console.log statements in the code I added and the the other methods in the plugin file and none of them get triggered. My app behaves the same as it did before I added the code to the plugin.
So, now my question has evolved: how can I debug a plugin under development?
Alternatively, is there some other method I should be using to add the local plugin?
