Ionic Cordova Error – ENOENT: no such file or directory

When trying to build (“ionic cordova build ios”) my Ionic Cordova project, I got this error: “Error: ENOENT: no such file or directory“.

Took me awhile to figure out since I had just copied the project from an older project, made a few changes etc. Turns out the cause was that I had used a slash (“/”) in the app name in config.xml, changing the name fixed the issue.
