A plugin is a package of injected code that allows the Cordova web-view within which the app renders to communicate with the native platform on which it runs. Plugins provide access to device and platform functionality that is ordinarily unavailable to web-based apps. ugins/ Plugins comprise a single JavaScript interface along with corresponding native code libraries for each supported platform. In essence this hides the various native code implementations behind a common JavaScript interface. What is Cordova? Cordova, formerly called as Phone Gap is a platform to build Native Mobile Applications using HTML5, CSS and Java Script. In other words, it acts a container for running a web application written in HTML, CSS, JS Typically Web applications cannot use the native device functionality like Camera, GPS, Accelerometer, Contacts etc. With Cordova we can very much achieve this and package the web application in the device’s installer format.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
