BackgroundFetch

Cross-platform background-fetch for Cordova / PhoneGap Tutorial

Follows the Cordova Plugin spec, so that it works with Plugman.

This plugin leverages Cordova/PhoneGap's require/define functionality used for plugins.

Using the plugin

The plugin creates the object window.plugins.backgroundFetch with the methods configure(success, fail, option), start(success, fail) and `stop(success, fail).

Installing the plugin

1.Download the repo using GIT or just a ZIP from Github.

2.Add the plugin to your project (from the root of your project):

   phonegap plugin add https://github.com/christocracy/cordova-plugin-background-fetch.git

Example

A full example could be:

   onDeviceReady: function() {
        var Fetcher = window.plugins.backgroundFetch;

        // Your background-fetch handler.
        var fetchCallback = function() {
            console.log('BackgroundFetch initiated');

            // perform your ajax request to server here
            $.get({
                url: '/heartbeat.json',
                callback: function(response) {
                    // process your response and whatnot.

                    Fetcher.finish();   // <-- N.B. You MUST called #finish so that native-side can signal completion of the background-thread to the os.
                }
            });
        }
        Fetcher.configure(fetchCallback);
    }
