I looked around here and found nothing about it.

Is anyone able to successfully compile a background geolocation plugin on Android and iOS? I'm testing a plugin that is licensed and costs a little expensive for me and everyone I tested gives compilation error on Android or iOS.

Hi Eurico Junior,

And what type of plugin you are searching, a google maps component? I used one that is available in the forge: https://www.outsystems.com/forge/

Hi Eurico,

You have this component to access GPS capabilities of the device.

Regards,

Marcelo

Forge has only two background plugins: one is not up to date and does not compile for Android and the other is what I've created and I'm testing, but it's based on a licensed plugin.

This plugin only allows the location in foreground mode and in background mode it stops working.


So far only two I have managed to compile on Android and iOS:

https://github.com/pmwisdom/cordova-background-geolocation-services (works only in background mode and foreground does not register the location)

https://github.com/transistorsoft/cordova-background-geolocation-lt (the free version compiles only in debug mode on Android, it is necessary to buy the license, which here in Brazil costs a little expensive)
