Tumblr Digg Google Plus

If you need to uninstall some plugins that you are no longer need. You can go to Ionic project folder. You will then find there is a folder named plugins.

To remove a plugin you just need to use the following code in your Node.Js command prompt.

Hi Darwin, what you can do is to remove the folder manually and in the config file, you can remove the plugin name manually as well. It should remove the plugin for you.

Hi Anes, Tried this. Copy the whole of your ionic project first and zip it. Then try adding any new plugin and remove it using the above line. See if it does work? If it does, then re-install the cordova-plugin-app-preferences and once succesfull, try to uninstall it again.

Hi Andy, I tried your solution . Removed the line : and removed the folder : cordova-plugin-app-preferences from 'npm_folder' But still show: user@acer:~/dreamhouse-mobile-ionic$ ionic cordova plugin > cordova plugin ls cordova-plugin-app-preferences 0.99.3 "AppPreferences" cordova-plugin-console 1.0.5 "Console" cordova-plugin-device 2.0.1 "Device" First entry is that app name.. Please advise Thanks Anes

Hi Devendra, I don't think there is an option to list unused plugins. However you can uninstall any plugin you think that is not in used and if it breaks, just reinstall it back.
