    The sample app for MapBox is now giving a build error.  I removed it from my Android phone and removed project from MyApp.

    Trying to build Android App Package debug.  I am doing as App Package, not Companion because of custom plugins.  This was done using Chrome browser running web Platform.

    Server exception

    Hello David,

    Thank you for reporting this. I was able to reproduce the faulty behavior and indeed, the Android build fails for the MapBox sample app. I logged an issue about this here.

    Further, I found a workaround which you can apply in the project until the official fix is released. Here are the steps you will need to take for that:
    1. Open your project in AppBuilder.
    2. Disable the MapBox plugin from your project's Properties > Plugins tab (via the On/Off switch).
    3. Download the latest version of the MapBox plugin as an archive from here.
    4. Import it in your project as a custom Cordova plugin, as shown here.
    5. Open its plugin.xml file and change the following:
      <source-file src="src/android/res/values/mapboxstrings.xml" target-dir="res/values" />
      <config-file target="res/values/mapboxstrings.xml" parent="/*">
        <string name="mapbox_accesstoken">$ACCESS_TOKEN</string>
      <!--<source-file src="src/android/res/values/mapboxstrings.xml" target-dir="res/values" />-->
      <config-file target="res/values/strings.xml" parent="/*">
        <string name="mapbox_accesstoken">$ACCESS_TOKEN</string>
    6. Add the plugin variable as explained.
    7. Try building the project again.

    Additionally, for reporting a bug on our side, I have updated your Telerik points accordingly. Thank you once again.
