Cordova plugin - can be NOT from GitHub?

Cordova plugin - can be NOT from GitHub?

  

Hi,

I'm to create a mobile application for my client. This application should access their data using their security tools (Java class that uses their own certificates, authorization etc.). Normally these tools are manually installed on the user's business mobile device. Now I must use it as a Cordova plugin to be able to use it from within my OS application. But as a standard Cordova plugins must be placed in the GitHub repository. The issue is that the client wouldn't allow to place his security tools in a public place.

Can I - and how - make this plugin "private", i.e. accessible only form my applicaation?

Regards

Tomasz

Hello Tomasz,

It is not required the plugin to be in GitHub.
You can also put the plugin in the resoursces of the app, for example.

See here the three ways to tell OutSystems where is the plugin:

Thanks a lot. This sounds reasonably - and nice :-)
