ABBYY Real-Time Recognition SDK Cordova Plugin

ABBYY Real-Time Recognition SDK Cordova Plugin allows to use the Text Capture and Data Capture features of ABBYY Real-Time Recognition SDK (RTR SDK) in apps based on the Apache Cordova framework.

This plugin requires the ABBYY RTR SDK native library which is available for Android and iOS. You can download its free version from the ABBYY RTR SDK website. Extended versions of the native libraries are also available, with more recognition languages, more Data Capture features, and full Text Capture scenario support. If you are interested in the extended version, please contact the ABBYY Sales Team.

The native libraries support the following systems:

  • Android: version 4.4 or later for ARMv7 (armeabi-v7a) and ARMv8 (arm64-v8a) processors
  • iOS: versions 8.x and later

Getting started

  1. Add the plugin to your project.
    cd MyProject
    cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-abbyy-rtr-sdk
  2. Download ABBYY RTR SDK from (or get the extended version from the ABBYY Sales Team) and add it to your project:
    • Create the www/rtr_assets subdirectory in the project.
    • Copy RTR SDK assets (patterns and dictionaries) and license file (AbbyyRtrSdk.license) to www/rtr_assets.
    • Copy the Android library (abbyy-rtr-sdk-1.0.aar) to libs/android.
    • Copy the iOS framework (AbbyyRtrSDK.framework) to libs/ios.
  3. Add libs/android and libs/ios to the linker search paths.
    • For Android, add the following settings to platforms/android/build.gradle:
      allprojects {
        repositories {
          flatDir {
            dirs '../../../libs/android' // cordova-android >= 7
            dirs '../../libs/android' // cordova-android <= 6
    • For iOS, add the following to platforms/ios/cordova/build.xcconfig:
      FRAMEWORK_SEARCH_PATHS = "../../libs/ios"
  4. To build and run your project:
    • For Android:
      cordova build android
      cordova run android
    • For iOS, specify your Development Team:
      cordova build ios --buildFlag="-UseModernBuildSystem=0" --buildFlag="DEVELOPMENT_TEAM=<YOUR_TEAM>"
