We released the first version of ngCordova today, an open source set of AngularJS services and extensions to make using Cordova plugins in your Ionic apps incredibly easy. Read the full release info here: http://ionicframework.com/blog/ng-cordova/
If you’ve ever used a Cordova plugin but had difficulty incorporating it into your Angular code, ngCordova was made for you. Give it a try, and let us know what you think about it!
Soon, we will be adding support for mocking plugins for testing purposes (think testing Geolocation data, or simulating a device shake), and also making plugins not fail if Cordova isn’t present.
From all of us on the Ionic team, we hope you love ngCordova!
