Update Version

Manually Update

To update your PhoneGap CLI to the latest version, run the following command:

$ npm install -g phonegap
NOTE: If you get an Error: EACCES when running any of the commands here, try prefixing it with sudo, such as: $ sudo npm install -g phonegap

Update Available Notification

The CLI will also display a notification when any command is used if an update is available:

$ phonegap -v
6.0.3

   ---------------------------------------
   |                                     |
   |   Update available 6.0.3 -> 6.0.4   |
   |   Run npm i -g phonegap to update   |
   |                                     |
   ---------------------------------------
NOTE: This notification will only be displayed once every 24 hours.

To disable the update notifier, you can do one of the following:

  1. Use the --no-update-notifer flag with any PhoneGap command.
    • For example, phonegap run ios --no-update-notifier
  2. Disable the update notifier by altering the configuration file.
    1. Open ~/.config/configstore/update-notifier-phonegap.json
    2. Set the property "optOut": true
