WHAT IS ACE?
- Mix native UI with HTML
- Use a cross-platform native UI framework
- Call native code without additional plugins
RUNNING THE EXAMPLES
From a Command Prompt (Windows) or Terminal (Mac):
- Install NPM, which is included in the Node.js installation, if you haven't already
- Install Cordova using NPM (this might require executing with sudo on a Mac):
npm install -g cordova
- Go to the examples/AceExamples subfolder, then run:
cordova prepare cordova run android cordova run ios
Or, Using Visual Studio:
- Ensure you have Tools for Apache Cordova installed
- Open examples/AceExamples/AceExamples.sln
- Deploy to either an Android emulator or device (KitKat or later, ideally Marshmallow), or an iOS remote device
- If you need a Marshmallow Android emulator, run the "Visual Studio Emulator for Android" program from the Start menu to download one.
ADDING TO A NEW OR EXISTING CORDOVA PROJECT
Just add the plugin to your Cordova project. Whether you use Visual Studio or command-line tools, Windows or Mac, you can add this plugin the standard way. For example:
cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-ace
or, in Visual Studio, open config.xml then add the plugin under Plugins, Custom. You can point it at https://github.com/microsoft/ace.git or a local copy that you download.
Then follow the examples and docs. You can find examples in the examples folder of this repository.

The easiest way to test plugin code changes is to copy the examples/AceExamples folder outside of the plugin folder, remove the Ace plugin from the project, and then add it back using a path to your local ace folder with your code changes.
Just remember to copy any enhancements you make to the AceExamples project back to the original location!
