Scanbot SDK example app for Ionic 1

This example app shows how to integrate the Scanbot SDK Cordova Plugin with Ionic Framework v1.

For the latest version of Ionic as well as the latest features of the Scanbot SDK Cordova Plugin please see our scanbot-sdk-example-ionic app.

What is Scanbot SDK?

The Scanbot SDK brings scanning and document creation capabilities to your mobile apps. It contains modules which are individually licensable as license packages. For more details visit our website

The Scanbot SDK Cordova Plugin is available as npm package.

The app demonstrates only a few features of the plugin. For more details please see this documentation.

How to run this app

Install Cordova and Ionic. Fetch this repository and navigate to the project directory.

cd scanbot-sdk-example-ionic1

Install platforms and plugins (defined in the config.xml of this app):

ionic prepare

Check installed platforms and plugins:

ionic platform ls

ionic plugin ls

You should see android and ios as installed platforms and cordova-plugin-scanbot-sdk as installed plugins.

Connect a device via USB and run the app.


ionic run android


To run this example app on an iOS device you have to adjust some settings in Xcode:

  • Provisioning and Code Signing settings - see Cordova docs
  • Add ScanbotSDK.framework as Embedded Binary - see our plugin docs

Then you can start the App in Xcode or via ionic run ios.

Please note

This example app doesn't contain a Scanbot SDK license key and runs in a trial mode (trial period of 1 minute)!
After the trial period is over the Scanbot SDK functions will stop working. The UI parts (like Camera UI) will stop working or may be terminated. You have to restart the app to get another trial period.
