We want to make your life easy. If you want to integrate CraftAR into your Cordova mobile app, we provide an Augmented Reality Cordova Plugin for iOS and Android that you can directly add to your Cordova project.
How to get started with the Augmented Reality Cordova Plugin for iOS and Android
In order to get started with the Plugin, we recommend you to run the examples included in the distribution that you can download upon request (see button above). The examples are located in the craftarsdkexamples directory as an Apache Cordova Project.
Running the examples
In order to run the examples project, open a Terminal and go into the examples directory, then install the desired platform(s) and the plugin. Finally, you can run the examples app in your device:
$ cd craftarsdkexamples
### First, install the platform(s)
$ cordova platform add android
$ cordova platform add ios
### Then, install the plugin
$ cordova plugin add ../craftar-cordova-plugin
### Finally, run the examples app on your device, for instance:
$ cordova run android --device
The examples app opens a menu view that allows you to open the different examples. Each example opens the camera and the first step is for you to scan any object. We provide a set of reference images to point at that show different experiences. You can find those images in the folder craftarsdkexamples/Reference images.
We strongly recommend that you print this images out for testing. Pointing at them in your laptop/PC’s screen can heavily alter the experience due to artefacts that are invisible to your naked eye but very disturbing when captured with your smartphone.
To integrate the Cordova Cloud Image Recognition Plugin into your native app, you will need cordova 6.0+.
