How to use it

Checking if Dynamic Shortcuts are supported

Dynamic shortcuts require SDK 25 or later. Use supportsDynamic to check whether the current device meets those requirements.

window.plugins.Shortcuts.supportsDynamic(function(supported) { 
    if (supported)
        window.alert('Dynamic shortcuts are supported');
    else
        window.alert('Dynamic shortcuts are NOT supported');
}, function(error) {
    window.alert('Error: ' + error);
})

Checking if Pinned Shortcuts are supported

Pinned shortcuts require SDK 26 or later. Use supportsPinned to check whether the current device meets those requirements.

window.plugins.Shortcuts.supportsPinned(function(supported) { 
    if (supported)
        window.alert('Pinned shortcuts are supported');
    else
        window.alert('Pinned shortcuts are NOT supported');
}, function(error) {
    window.alert('Error: ' + error);
})

Setting the application Dynamic Shortcuts

Use setDynamic to set the Dynamic Shortcuts for the application, all at once. The shortcuts provided as a parameter will override any existing shortcut. Use an empty array to clear out existing shortcuts.

var shortcut = {
    id: 'my_shortcut_1',
    shortLabel: 'Short description',
    longLabel: 'Longer string describing the shortcut',
    iconBitmap: '<Bitmap for the shortcut icon, base64 encoded>',
    iconFromResource: "ic_playlist_play_red", //filename w/o extension of an icon that resides on res/drawable-* (hdpi,mdpi..)
    intent: {
        action: 'android.intent.action.RUN',
        categories: [
            'android.intent.category.TEST', // Built-in Android category
            'MY_CATEGORY' // Custom categories are also supported
        ],
        flags: 67108864, // FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TOP
        data: 'myapp://path/to/launch?param=value', // Must be a well-formed URI
        extras: {
            'android.intent.extra.SUBJECT': 'Hello world!', // Built-in Android extra (string)
            'MY_BOOLEAN': true, // Custom extras are also supported (boolean, number and string only)
        }
    }
}
window.plugins.Shortcuts.setDynamic([shortcut], function() {
    window.alert('Shortcuts were applied successfully');
}, function(error) {
    window.alert('Error: ' + error);
})

Adding a Pinned Shortcut to the launcher

Use addPinned to add a new Pinned Shortcut to the launcher.

var shortcut = {
    id: 'my_shortcut_1',
    shortLabel: 'Short description',
    longLabel: 'Longer string describing the shortcut',
    iconBitmap: '<Bitmap for the shortcut icon, base64 encoded>', // Defaults to the main application icon
    iconFromResource: "ic_playlist_play_red", //filename w/o extension of an icon that resides on res/drawable-* (hdpi,mdpi..)
    intent: {
        action: 'android.intent.action.RUN',
        categories: [
            'android.intent.category.TEST', // Built-in Android category
            'MY_CATEGORY' // Custom categories are also supported
        ],
        flags: 67108864, // FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TOP
        data: 'myapp://path/to/launch?param=value', // Must be a well-formed URI
        extras: {
            'android.intent.extra.SUBJECT': 'Hello world!', // Built-in Android extra (string)
            'MY_BOOLEAN': true, // Custom extras are also supported (boolean, number and string only)
        }
    }
}
window.plugins.Shortcuts.addPinned(shortcut, function() {
    window.alert('Shortcut pinned successfully');
}, function(error) {
    window.alert('Error: ' + error);
})

Querying current Intent

Use getIntent to get the Intent that was used to launch the current instance of the Cordova activity.

window.plugins.Shortcuts.getIntent(function(intent) {
    window.alert(JSON.stringify(intent));
})

Subscribe to new Intents

Use onNewIntent to register a callback to be executed every time a new Intent is sent to your Cordova activity. Note that in some conditions this callback may not be executed.

For more information see the documentation for Activity.onNewIntent(Intent)

window.plugins.Shortcuts.onNewIntent(function(intent) {
    window.alert(JSON.stringify(intent));
})

Call with an empty callback to de-register the existing callback.

window.plugins.Shortcuts.onNewIntent(); // De-register existing callback
