At work I’m starting to package an Ionic App for Android and it’s been one problem after another (I spent most of yesterday afternoon dealing with a version incompatibility with my NPM libraries and installing Android Studio). Today I ran into a problem getting the application to compile. I’m documenting the solution here because I’m sure I’ll have a problem with it again.

This is the error I received:

A problem occurred configuring root project 'android'.

> You have not accepted the license agreements of the following SDK components:
  [Android SDK Platform 26].

After some Googling I was able to determine I needed to run:

~/Library/Android/sdk/tools/bin/sdkmanager --licenses

After this you’ll need to press Y until you receive:

All SDK package licenses accepted
