Adding Cordova plugins


This is probably more Cordova than Ionic question. I’m completely new to hybrid apps development and I’m currently struggling with sooo many things so please forgive me if this is a noob question.

I need to add plugins to my project. Namely SQLite and LowLatencyAudio.

I install them using cordova plugin add http://somewhereongithub.

And now is the part I don’t quite understand. Is that all I need to do? Or do I need to add that plugin to some XML config? Do I need to include plugin’s .js file in my project somewhere or is that handled automatically by cordova.js when I build the project?

Currently my project builds but plugins seem to be not working. And I don’t know if I’m doing something wrong in my code when trying to use plugins or if I didn’t install them properly.

Thanks for your help.


You can run “cordova prepare” command after “cordova plugin add {github_url}” as mentioned on below link:

I ran these two commands and I am able to make use of third-party plugin in my app.

Good luck !
