Has anyone used the cordova-plugin-openwith plugin in Appery.io or know of alternative one that works?

Post by RP »

Hello,

I like to register my app with the phone to allow "Share Using" actions to pass data to my app. I found this plug-in that supports what I want as I couldn't figure out how to do it in Appery.io without a plugin: https://github.com/j3k0/cordova-plugi...

However, the cordova plugin won't see to work if i reference it in Appery.io. During the builder process in Appery.io I get thrown a generic error saying there is a problem with the build. If i remove the reference and build again the error message goes away.

What I like to do in Appery.io is to allow someone on their phone to select a photo or document, and click the share with or open with icon and have my app be one of the apps the user can select to send the selected file to my app. In my case, a user can select a photo on their phone and with the share via/share with/etc... button click and select my app to have the photo automatically uploaded to their online storage account...very much like how drop box, google drive, etc... do theirs.

Is this possible using the Appery.io platform?

Best,
RP

Hello,

It should work fine with Appery.io platform, but we have never tested it.
Unfortunately, any help (and/or debugging) with your custom app code or logic as well as 3rd party Apache Cordova/PhoneGap plugins are not covered by our Support policy (https://docs.appery.io/docs/general-s...).
To get such help, you will need to consider purchasing Advisory Pack: (https://appery.io/services/#Advisory_...)

Hi Serhii,

I've attached what I like to accomplished. If there are no limitations in accomplishing it on the appery.io platform I will buy the Advisory Pack to help me out. Does it seem like it could get accomplished?

Do you need to use it on both platforms or Android only?

Yes, it is possible to make the application like that, it requires a Flex Pack. Please see this link to get more information about Appery.io Services: https://appery.io/services/
