Cordova/Phonegap Launch Navigator Example

This repo contains example projects illustrating how to use the Launch Navigator plugin to launch native navigation apps on iOS, Android, and Windows to get driving directions to a desired location.

Table of Contents

Downloading

To download the example, clone the repo using git:

$ git clone https://github.com/dpa99c/phonegap-launch-navigator-example.git

Projects

The repo contains the following example projects in sub-directories:

  • SimpleExample - a basic (pure HTML5) example showing how the plugin can be invoked to navigate to a specified destination, with an optionally specified start location.
  • AdvancedExample - a more complex (pure HTML5) example which shows how the plugin can be used to launch specific navigation apps and how their input parameters can be tailored.
  • IonicExample - a basic example using Ionic 1 framework / Angular 1
  • Ionic2Example - a basic example using Ionic 2 framework / Angular 2
  • Ionic3Example - a basic example using Ionic 3 framework / Angular 4
  • Ionic4Example - a basic example using Ionic 4 framework / Angular 7

Building and running

The plugin is intended to launch native navigation apps and therefore will only work on native mobile platforms (i.e. Android/iOS/Windows). Note that the plugin will NOT work in a browser-emulated Cordova environment, for example by running ionic serve or using the Ripple emulator.

To build and run any of the projects, first open a terminal window and change to the project directory, for example:

$ cd SimpleExample

SimpleExample and AdvancedExample

Add a platform, for example Android:

$ cordova platform add android

Then build and run the project. The plugins dependencies will be satisfied automatically. For example:

$ cordova run android

IonicExample, Ionic2Example, Ionic3Example

Since these are ionic-based projects, first install node module dependencies

$ npm install

Add a platform, for example Android:

$ ionic cordova platform add android

Then build and run the project, for example

$ ionic cordova run android      

Supported platforms

The example projects will run on Android, iOS, Windows Universal (8.1/10) and Windows Phone 8 (8.0/8.1)
