Hello so ,

I installed a cordova plugin in the project using the

cordova add plugin cordova-plugin-barcodescanner

in my config.xml i can see it added

<plugin name="cordova-android-play-services-gradle-release" spec="0.0.2" />
    <plugin name="cordova-plugin-barcodescanner" spec="^0.7.0" />
    <plugin name="cordova-plugin-whitelist" spec="1" />

but I was not able to access the cordova.plugin variable in my project so I added following lines of code
in main.js

import VueCordova from 'vue-cordova';
// BarCode Scanner 
Vue.use(VueCordova, {
  optionTestKey: 'optionTestValue'

Then tried to access the plugin again
This time i was able to access the cordova object but
I get plugin array as empty no plugin inside that , Any Idea what could be a problem ?

vue-cordova supports only some plugins and barcodescanner isn't one of them.
I'm trying to figure out how to use cordova plugins without using wrappers like vue-cordova

@lucabrtoli or @vikramlde any word on this or working examples you've found?

One clue is that "cordova" globally isn't defined anywhere.

Not sure if related, but this template's build doesn't appear to copy "cordova.js" to www (if using platform ios, located in: platforms/ios/CordovaLib/)

These folks describe a convoluted way to get vue-cordova to kind of work but no luck.

I'm trying to achieve exactly the same thing (with that specific plugin), very eager to hear any ideas.

Did the last comment in the stackoverflow thread you posted help you?

@ehausen it did not. I ended up ditching vue-Cordova & this template entirely.

This is a working template (using an older version of f7, the author allegedly is working on v3 at this point):
