[Request]Cordova to open app settings

  • Sorry in advance if this is in the wrong spot but the only "request" sections I could find are for project feedback or collaboration requests...

    Anyway, with Marshmallow introducing custom permissions my users need to know to manually enable permissions because currently, if you don't know any better, then it appears that certain aspects of my app don't work.

    For example, I use the cordova telephone plugin, which doesn't work until the user goes in to the app permissions and enables the telephone permission but there are no automatic system prompts to do so. I was hoping to create a link from my app to open up the app settings in android to make it easier on the novice user.

    I can use the cordova plugin "LaunchApp" to open package by url and link to "com.android.settings" but this is too general. I want to go specifically to my app settings.

    I found this (see below) and am not sure if it's the basis required to make this plugin but I have no clue how to create a plugin. Can anyone throw something together here?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Josek5494 is this something you'd be interested in looking in to at all?

    Hahahahaha nice mate, thanks for thinking about me to make this. Really i want to make every plugin and code request to help people in this forum and after all, is nice content to my blog and my youtube channel.

    I'm interested in it, and i'm gonna make a plugin. Can you please tell me if one of those plugins is in official cordova plugin registry / npm web? To make it easier to install in cordova.

  • Thanks! That'd be great if you could put something together. I'd really appreciate it!

    As for your question, I honestly don't know. I just googled what I needed and those were the 2 results that looked the most promising lol. Sorry!

    I'm taking a look at this: https://github.com/selahssea/Cordova-op ... e-settings and it seems good to make a plugin. The only bad thing is you have to install it with the github link or locally (In the final steps in XDK/cordova i mean) because it's not in npm/migrated to official cordova plugin registry, but nevermind, not an important issue. I will post a link to my blog/youtube video here when finished ^^
