Link to ionic app from a facebook link


#1

Hi All,

I’m pretty new to ionic and Im loving it. I have a question and I hope you guys will be able to help me out.

I’m building an app where users can post links to facebook. Basically they can post a text (status) to facebook and what I want to do is, when someone click that status in facebook, it should be open up in my mobile app (which already installed in the users mobile)

So far I’ve red some things about linking with html5 tags, but the problem is I cannot do that in a facebook post.

How can I archive this with ionic (Im a web developer and pretty new to mobile development and cannot get my head around with this :wink:

any help would be much appreciated

cheers,

Sam

You’d use an intent filter (in AndroidManifest.xml) on Android. You might want to have the link point to your homepage for those who don’t have your app installed.

I don’t know how it’d be done on iOS.
