Methods

Accessing the Feature

As of version 3.0, Cordova implements device-level APIs as plugins. Use the CLI's plugin command, described in The Command-Line Interface, to add or remove this feature for a project:

    $ cordova plugin add org.apache.cordova.splashscreen
    $ cordova plugin ls
    [ 'org.apache.cordova.splashscreen' ]
    $ cordova plugin rm org.apache.cordova.splashscreen

These commands apply to all targeted platforms, but modify the platform-specific configuration settings described below:

  • Amazon Fire OS (in res/xml/config.xml)

    <feature name="SplashScreen">
        <param name="android-package" value="org.apache.cordova.splashscreen.SplashScreen" />
    </feature>
    
  • Android (in res/xml/config.xml)

    <feature name="SplashScreen">
        <param name="android-package" value="org.apache.cordova.splashscreen.SplashScreen" />
    </feature>
    
  • iOS (in the named application directory's config.xml)

    <feature name="SplashScreen">
        <param name="ios-package" value="CDVSplashScreen" />
    </feature>
    

Some platforms may support this feature without requiring any special configuration. See Platform Support for an overview.
