Mobile Configuration
Documentation of Meteor's Cordova configuration API.

If your Meteor application targets mobile platforms such as iOS or Android, you can configure your app's metadata and build process in a special top-level file called mobile-config.js which is not included in your application and is used only for this configuration.

The code snippet below is an example mobile-config.js file. The rest of this section will explain the specific API commands in greater detail.

// This section sets up some basic app metadata, the entire section is optional.{
  id: 'com.example.matt.uber',
  name: 'über',
  description: 'Get über power in one button click',
  author: 'Matt Development Group',
  email: '',
  website: ''

// Set up resources such as icons and launch screens.
  'iphone_2x': 'icons/icon-60@2x.png',
  'iphone_3x': 'icons/icon-60@3x.png',
  // More screen sizes and platforms...

  'iphone_2x': 'splash/Default@2x~iphone.png',
  'iphone5': 'splash/Default~iphone5.png',
  // More screen sizes and platforms...

// Set PhoneGap/Cordova preferences.
App.setPreference('BackgroundColor', '0xff0000ff');
App.setPreference('HideKeyboardFormAccessoryBar', true);
App.setPreference('Orientation', 'default');
App.setPreference('Orientation', 'all', 'ios');

// Pass preferences for a particular PhoneGap/Cordova plugin.
App.configurePlugin('com.phonegap.plugins.facebookconnect', {
  APP_ID: '1234567890',
  API_KEY: 'supersecretapikey'

// Add custom tags for a particular PhoneGap/Cordova plugin to the end of the
// generated config.xml. 'Universal Links' is shown as an example here.
    <host name="localhost:3000" />

{% apibox "" %} {% apibox "App.setPreference" %} {% apibox "App.accessRule" %}

For example this Cordova whitelist syntax:

<access origin="" />
<allow-navigation href="" />

is equivalent to:

App.accessRule('', { type: 'navigation' });

{% apibox "App.configurePlugin" %}

Note: When using App.configurePlugin to re-configure a plugin which has been previously configured, the changes may not be reflected without manually clearing the existing Cordova build. To clear the existing Cordova build, remove the .meteor/local/cordova-build directory and re-build the application using either meteor run or meteor build.
