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.device-motion
    $ cordova plugin ls
    [ 'org.apache.cordova.device-motion' ]
    $ cordova plugin rm org.apache.cordova.device-motion

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