Adding the Push Notification Plugin

Install the Push plugin using the Cordova command line interface.

Prerequisites

  • Set up the development environment.
  • Create your Cordova project.
  • Add your OS platforms.

Context

When you add the Push plugin to your project, the Settings and Logger plugins are also added automatically.

Procedure

  1. Add the Push plugin by entering the following at the command prompt, or terminal:

    cordova plugin add kapsel-plugin-push --searchpath KAPSEL_HOME/plugins

  2. (Optional) To see a list of installed plugins in your Cordova project, open a command prompt or terminal window, navigate to your Cordova project folder, and enter:
    cordova plugins
    The Cordova command line interface returns a JSON array showing installed plugins, for example:
    [ 'cordova-plugin-camera',     
    'cordova-plugin-device-motion',     
    'cordova-plugin-file' ] 

    This example shows that the Cordova project has the Cordova core Camera, Accelerator (device-motion), and File plugins installed.

  3. Modify the files in the Cordova project's www folder as appropriate for your project.
  4. Execute the following command to copy the files in the Cordova project's www folder to the platform directories:
    cordova prepare android
    cordova prepare ios 
    cordova prepare windows
  5. Use an integrated development environment to deploy and run the project.
