I try to do an Intel XDK build - build failed for this reason "Error: Plugin "org.apache.cordova.inappbrowser" failed to install." I use C2 and Construct 2 native plugin "browser". I build for iOS.
About 4-7 days ago, everything works just fine. Same C2 project, same Intel XDK project, same plugins. What has changed? I can't update my app to the App Store..
 used Intel XDK Early Access 2866 and also testing on Intel XDK 2893. 4-7 days ago, all worked very well! 
There have been some problems with the NPM registry (which is where that plugin is pulled from) that have been interfering with our build system. Are you still experiencing build problems?
If you continue to experience problems, you can remove it and re-add it as a github plugin using the third-party plugin option. Here's an example of how to add it that way, check the repo for specific release tags (https://github.com/apache/cordova-plugin-inappbrowser/releases):
What worked for me was adding this plugin as mentioned, but I also had to edit the file intelxdk.config.additions.xml.
I removed the line with órg.apache.cordova.inappbrowser. And then it worked!
It is very important that you DO NOT use the intelxdk.config.additions.xml file for adding plugins. If you have imported a Construct2 application you may be encountering this problem. You need to add your plugins using the Plugin Management tool on the Projects tab. Using the additions file worked with our old build systems, but that procedure no longer works, and importing plugins using this technique will no longer work.
Is it the InAppBrowser plugin that is failing for everyone?
Does anyone have a build log file they can upload? If using the plugin manager and removing from the additions file doesn't work for you, could you private message me your project?
For anyone who comes across this and is still having a problem, I was referencing old documentation that no longer works. The new way to install this plugin is described here: http://cordova.apache.org/docs/en/6.x/reference/cordova-plugin-inappbrowser/index.html#page-toc-sour...
