    How to use it

    Checking if Dynamic Shortcuts are supported

    Dynamic shortcuts require SDK 25 or later. Use supportsDynamic to check whether the current device meets those requirements.

    window.plugins.Shortcuts.supportsDynamic(function(supported) { 
    	if (supported)
    		window.alert('Dynamic shortcuts are supported');
    	else
    		window.alert('Dynamic shortcuts are NOT supported');
    }, function(error) {
    	window.alert('Error: ' + error);
    })

    Checking if Pinned Shortcuts are supported

    Pinned shortcuts require SDK 26 or later. Use supportsPinned to check whether the current device meets those requirements.

    window.plugins.Shortcuts.supportsPinned(function(supported) { 
    	if (supported)
    		window.alert('Pinned shortcuts are supported');
    	else
    		window.alert('Pinned shortcuts are NOT supported');
    }, function(error) {
    	window.alert('Error: ' + error);
    })

    Setting the application Dynamic Shortcuts

    Use setDynamic to set the Dynamic Shortcuts for the application, all at once. The shortcuts provided as a parameter will override any existing shortcut. Use an empty array to clear out existing shortcuts.

    var shortcut = {
    	id: 'my_shortcut_1',
    	shortLabel: 'Short description',
    	longLabel: 'Longer string describing the shortcut',
    	iconBitmap: '<Bitmap for the shortcut icon, base64 encoded>',
    	iconFromResource: "ic_playlist_play_red", //filename w/o extension of an icon that resides on res/drawable-* (hdpi,mdpi..)
    	intent: {
    		action: 'android.intent.action.RUN',
    		categories: [
    			'android.intent.category.TEST', // Built-in Android category
    			'MY_CATEGORY' // Custom categories are also supported
    		],
    		flags: 67108864, // FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TOP
    		data: 'myapp://path/to/launch?param=value', // Must be a well-formed URI
    		extras: {
    			'android.intent.extra.SUBJECT': 'Hello world!', // Built-in Android extra (string)
    			'MY_BOOLEAN': true, // Custom extras are also supported (boolean, number and string only)
    		}
    	}
    }
    window.plugins.Shortcuts.setDynamic([shortcut], function() {
    	window.alert('Shortcuts were applied successfully');
    }, function(error) {
    	window.alert('Error: ' + error);
    })

    Adding a Pinned Shortcut to the launcher

    Use addPinned to add a new Pinned Shortcut to the launcher.

    var shortcut = {
    	id: 'my_shortcut_1',
    	shortLabel: 'Short description',
    	longLabel: 'Longer string describing the shortcut',
    	iconBitmap: '<Bitmap for the shortcut icon, base64 encoded>', // Defaults to the main application icon
    	iconFromResource: "ic_playlist_play_red", //filename w/o extension of an icon that resides on res/drawable-* (hdpi,mdpi..)
    	intent: {
    		action: 'android.intent.action.RUN',
    		categories: [
    			'android.intent.category.TEST', // Built-in Android category
    			'MY_CATEGORY' // Custom categories are also supported
    		],
    		flags: 67108864, // FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TOP
    		data: 'myapp://path/to/launch?param=value', // Must be a well-formed URI
    		extras: {
    			'android.intent.extra.SUBJECT': 'Hello world!', // Built-in Android extra (string)
    			'MY_BOOLEAN': true, // Custom extras are also supported (boolean, number and string only)
    		}
    	}
    }
    window.plugins.Shortcuts.addPinned(shortcut, function() {
    	window.alert('Shortcut pinned successfully');
    }, function(error) {
    	window.alert('Error: ' + error);
    })

    Querying current Intent

    Use getIntent to get the Intent that was used to launch the current instance of the Cordova activity.

    window.plugins.Shortcuts.getIntent(function(intent) {
    	window.alert(JSON.stringify(intent));
    })

    Subscribe to new Intents

    Use onNewIntent to register a callback to be executed every time a new Intent is sent to your Cordova activity. Note that in some conditions this callback may not be executed.

    For more information see the documentation for Activity.onNewIntent(Intent)

    window.plugins.Shortcuts.onNewIntent(function(intent) {
    	window.alert(JSON.stringify(intent));
    })

    Call with an empty callback to de-register the existing callback.

    window.plugins.Shortcuts.onNewIntent(); // De-register existing callback
