Can't run cordova at all, in any directory, from any user, with or without any cmdline arguments, everytime it fails:

$ cordova
acorn.plugins.dynamicImport = function () {

TypeError: Cannot set property 'dynamicImport' of undefined

1. I've commented all rm-rf lines in PKGBUILD (see fix.patch attached)
2. makepks -si
3. It 100% works fine. Possibly, some PKGBUILD deps (browserify, acorn, etc) became useless now.

Additional info:
* community/cordova 8.1.2-1
* community/browserify 16.2.3-1
* community/acorn 1:6.0.4-1
* community/nodejs 11.2.0-1
* Same problem with ~solution:

Steps to reproduce:
1. $ cordova
This task depends upon

I can confirm that the proposed solution fixes the issue.

P.D: There is a typo in the solution, makepks should be makepkg :)

I have install the package cordova through pacman. How to apply this patch? Please let me know the steps

Himadri Sekhar Roy,

mkdir cordova
cd cordova
curl 'https://git.archlinux.org/svntogit/community.git/plain/trunk/PKGBUILD?h=packages/cordova' > PKGBUILD
curl 'https://git.archlinux.org/svntogit/community.git/plain/trunk/cordova.install?h=packages/cordova' > cordova.install
curl 'https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/60826?getfile=16991' > fix.patch
patch -p0 < fix.patch
makepkg -si

-OR- You can use AUR helpers to automate things (see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AUR_helpers)
$ yaourt -G cordova
$ cd cordova
$ curl fix.patch
