Phonegap /Cordova plugins


#1

How will wappler handle phonegap plugins for mobile app?


Framework7 how to enable Flashlight?
#2

Good question!

Actually you mean Cordova plugins :slight_smile:

We will handle them like the rest of the App Connect plugins. So they can be added in the App Structure, have properties and actions to call. So that you can also use them purely visually but still have all their programming powers.

So once we will get Framework7 v2 out and the Cordova integration in the next few weeks, we will start integrating the Cordova plugins as components afterwards.

If you have a priority list of which Cordova plugins are most important for you - do let us know, so we can prioritize the order.

wouldn’t this cause an overhead with updating the plugins?
don’t you think its better to make them open ended, so its the user responsibility to manage them and add anything they need from npm?

sure it will be less integrated into wappler but will allow to limitless plugins

here is the must used plugins:

#6

cordova-plugin-inappbrowser
cordova-plugin-network-information
cordova-plugin-device
cordova-plugin-dialogs
cordova-plugin-globalization
cordova-plugin-geolocation
cordova-plugin-statusbar
cordova-plugin-splashscreen
phonegap-plugin-barcodescanner
onesignal-cordova-plugin
cordova-plugin-whitelist

It would be great to have the possibility to manage platforms and plugins version:

some others i would also use

cordova-plugin-image-resizer
cordova-safe
cordova-plugin-file-transfer
cordova-plugin-app-event

Would be awesome if it has a plugin manager
