In this section, you will learn how to import and configure the Toast Cordova plugin.

  2. Click Import Cordova plugin.
  3. Click Choose file and upload the plugin file you downloaded.
  4. Click Import plugin. The plugin will appear under Cordova plugins.

Enabling the Plugin in an App

The plugin you just uploaded is available to any app. Before you can use it in an app you need to add it to a particular app.

  1. Inside an app, go to Project > App settings > Cordova plugins > Imported Cordova plugins.
  2. To enable the plugin for the current app, check the box for the plugin.

That's all the configuration you need to do for this plugin.

Now you can use its API as described in plugins documentation. For example, you can execute the following code on button click to show the toast:

        message: 'Hi there!',
        duration: 'short',
        position: 'top'
    function(a) {
        console.log('toast success: ' + a);
    function(b) {
        alert('toast error: ' + b);
