    cordova create my-app

  2. Install OpenTok plugin into your app: cd my-app
    cordova plugin add https://github.com/songz/cordova-plugin-opentok/

    Plugin already exists? To remove OpenTokPlugin: cordova plugin remove com.tokbox.cordova.opentok

3a. For Android Apps, add Android platform into your cordova app cordova platform add android

3b. For iOS Apps, add iOS platform into your cordova app
cordova platform add ios
iOS deloyment, as of March 14, needs additional setup. See FAQ/Troubleshoot.

  1. Edit your code in the created www folder

  2. To deploy your app to your android device: cordova run android --device

  3. To deploy your app to your iOS device:

    As of 1/17/2014, you cannot deploy to device with Cordova CLI for iOS apps. You need to first prepare you iOS app: cordova prepare iOS
    Next, open the project in xcode and run it on device: open platforms/ios/HelloWorld.xcodeproj


Getting Started on your Project:

All your editing will be done in your www folder.

To use the opentok library, make sure you include opentok.js file in your HTML document.
<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8" src="opentok.js"></script>

All JavaScript code should be written in deviceready function in /js/index.js because it is executed after all dependencies has loaded.

deviceready: function() {
    // Do Your Stuff Here!
},

To view and interact with elements on the browser console, use weinre. Here's a few things to take note of if you are using weinre on a local network:

  • make sure all devices are connected to the same network
  • make sure you bind weinre to 0.0.0.0 so your mobile devices: weinre --boundHost 0.0.0.0
  • when you include the js library from weinre, make sure to use your computer's ip address and not localhost!

Sample code

Located in example/www. To see the interop between mobile and web, simply deploy to your device and visit https://opentokrtc.com/cordova on your browser.

All of the code resides in example/www/index.html and example/www/js/index.js.

Have Fun!
