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
    $ cordova plugin add
    $ cordova plugin rm org.apache.cordova.core.dialogs
    $ cordova plugin rm org.apache.cordova.core.vibration

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

  • Android

      (in app/res/xml/config.xml)
      <feature name="Notification">
          <param name="android-package" value="org.apache.cordova.Notification" />
      (in app/AndroidManifest.xml)
      <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.VIBRATE" />
  • BlackBerry WebWorks

      (in www/plugins.xml)
      <feature name="Notification">
          <param name="blackberry-package" value="org.apache.cordova.notification.Notification" />
      (in www/config.xml)
      <feature id="blackberry.ui.dialog" />
  • iOS (in config.xml)

      <feature name="Notification">
          <param name="ios-package" value="CDVNotification" />

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