HELP, Failed to use ng-cordova

I downloaded the zip file and inside there got tons of file, I guess I only need the ng-cordova.js to be included into the index.html?

I copied ng-corodva.js into my own js file and declared it in index.html

But I’m getting $cordovaPlugin is not defined in my console. Why?

i would suggest install it over bower:

bower install ngCordova

then include the js file under the cordova lib:

<script src="cordova.js"></script> 
<script src="lib/ngCordova/dist/ng-cordova.js"></script>

I use manually install, just include the ng-cordova.js, I’ve done it properly I think at that part.

I guess you want to test the IAB: => Ridicoulos stupid doc of ngcordova
You used the wrong name => $cordovaInAppBrowser not $cordovaPlugin!!

here is a workflow for your tests:

  1. install ngCordova:
    bower install ngCordova
    or copy it by your selfe

  2. install the plugin:
    cordova plugin add org.apache.cordova.inappbrowser

  3. check your plugins:
    cordova plugin list

  4. check if you refered the file right in your index.html

  5. require ngCordova in your module.
    Here is an example:

    angular.module(‘modulname’, [ ‘ngCordova’])
    .controller(‘controllername’, function($scope, $ionicPlatform, $cordovaInAppBrowser) {

     var pathToSite = '';
     $rootScope.iabIsOpen = true;
     var iabDefaultSettings : {
         location : 'no',
         clearcache : 'no',
         toolbar : 'no'

    $scope.openIAB = function(bcmsBeaconKey) {

     $ionicPlatform.ready(function() {
     //if is open
     if($rootScope.iabIsOpen) {
         console.log('APPTEST: iabIsOpen');
     .open(pathToSite, '_blank', iabDefaultSettings)
         // success
         function(event) {
         console.log('on $cordovaInAppBrowser:open success');
     // error
     function(event) {
         //start all loops
         console.log('on $cordovaInAppBrowser:open error');
         $rootScope.iabIsOpen = false;


6.check you networkconnection, IAB needs internet :wink:
