How to add a local cordova plugin with ionic / ionic 2 / ionic 3 / ionic 4 / ionic 5?

To add a local plugin with ionic :

ionic cordova plugin add /path/to/my/plugin/

to remove it :

ionic cordova plugin remove

But to update it it’s another problem. Actually I’m removing and installing it again after each edit. Good luck 😉


If you are using a previous version of ionic cli, and it doesn’t work, change the commands to the following :

ionic plugin add /path/to/my/plugin/


ionic plugin remove
