Capacitor BackgroundFetch


we are building an app which we want to fetch data in a periodic time frame. Since the Cordova BackgroundFetch plugin does not work as intended (ignores every call after the first one) we had a look into Capacitor’s Background Task plugin. There is said that support for a periodic fetch will come “soon” but is coming in the near future (next couple of months) or is there a different approach to get a periodic fetch done in Ionic?

We are using Ionic 4 with Angular at the moment.

Thanks in advance

Hello Capacitor team, I have the same need. I am switching from Cordova to Capacitor and the background task are essential. When do you plan to roll out the support for periodic background fetch operations. My use case is sending user location to the web api every time the Geo location change is triggered. Thank you in advance.
