Functionality support


#1

Hello there!

I am very interested in using ionic framework but reading through the documentation did not find any references any additional smartphone feature support.

For example, I would love to code an application with ionic that could use the GPS module. Is this possible?

Is there a plan to support GPS and other smartphone features?

Thnaks in advance.

Hey @Tomekks. Right now we delegate that support to Cordova/PhoneGap/Trigger.io or whatever native container you want to use. Ionic is only the front end look and feel portion.

Does that help?

Does this mean things like accessing the camera, network, sensors and other device specific features are still accessible through, in Cordovas case for example, something like this?

navigator.device.capture.captureImage(
    CaptureCB captureSuccess, CaptureErrorCB captureError, [CaptureImageOptions options]
);
