Scheduler Plugin

Quick summary

Plugin which allows you to schedule an alarm which will start your app.

Getting started

The plugin can be installed using the following commands (this assumes you are familiar with the Cordova Android Getting Started):

  • cordova create hello com.example.hello "HelloWorld"
  • cd hello
  • cordova platform add android
  • cordova plugin add
  • Amend the hello\www\config.xml, replace any existing content node with: <content src="scheduler.html" /> (add the content node if not already present)
  • cordova build
  • Add the following to platforms\android\src\com\example\hello\ in the onCreate() method:
// You will also need to add - import com.red_folder.phonegap.plugin.scheduler.ActivityHelper; at the top of the java file
  • You should then be able to open, build the Android project (platforms\android) within Eclipse

You should be able to run the example.

This is a very early version of the plugin and is under active development.

Please see the Enhancements List for the planned changes.

Please read the Release Notes between version as function signature is very likely to change while in active development.

Spread the love

If you find the Plugin useful then spread the love.

All the work I do on the Plugin is done in my spare time - time I would otherwise be spending taking my wife out for a nice meal or helping my lad find vinyl records (he's currently very much into The Smiths, Fleetwood Mac and Kate Bush).

The Plugin is free and will always remain free. I will continue to develop, maintain and distribute the Plugin under the Apache 2.0 License.
