Cordova / Phonegap

Requirements for iOS:

  • Mac computer, Adobe PhoneGap Build does not work.
  • Cordova 9 or better
  • CocoaPods

Requirements for Android:

  • Android Studio
  • Cordova 9 or better

Installation steps:

If developing for iOS, Bugfender is compatible with iOS 8.0 and better. Edit your config.xml file, look for the iOS platform and add the following preference below (in bold):

<platform name="ios">
    <preference name="deployment-target" value="8.0" />

In your console, type the following command:

cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-bugfender --variable BUGFENDER_APP_KEY=YOUR_APP_KEY --save

If you do not have a Bugfender account yet, Sign up to get your key from the Install SDK wizard.

Replace console.log() with Bugfender.log() for the logs you want to send to Bugfender

Done! Run your application on a real device or emulator to get the first logs in.

Please note: Bugfender does nothing when testing on the browser platform. You will need to run on a real device or emulator to test it, with a command such as cordova emulate ios or cordova emulate android.

For a more advanced configuration please refer to the GitHub repository.
