Scanbot SDK example app for PhoneGap
This example app shows how to integrate the Scanbot SDK Cordova Plugin with PhoneGap. 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.
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 https://scanbot.io/sdk
How to run this app
Install PhoneGap, fetch this repository and navigate to the project directory.
Install platforms and plugins (defined in the config.xml of this app):
Check installed platforms and plugins:
phonegap platform ls
phonegap 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.
phonegap run android --device --verbose
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
- Make sure ScanbotSDK.framework was added as Embedded Binary - see our plugin docs
Then you can start the App in Xcode or via
phonegap run ios --device --verbose
It is not possible to test or preview the features of the Scanbot SDK Cordova Plugin within the PhoneGap Developer App.
It is also not possible to test or preview the Scanbot SDK Cordova Plugin in a desktop browser.
Or in other words, the PhoneGap serve mode
phonegap serve will not work! You have to build your app and deploy it on the target mobile device (
phonegap run android | ios).
Scanbot SDK trial mode
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.
