    cordova-plugin-shell-exec

    Apache Cordova Plugin to Execute Commands in Smartphone's Operating System Shell

    Supported Platforms

    • Android

    Installation

    $ cordova plugin add https://github.com/petervojtek/cordova-plugin-shell-exec.git

    Usage

    window.ShellExec.exec(cmd, callback)
    

    callback function will return a hash with two keys - exitStatus and output.

    Example:

    window.ShellExec.exec('uptime', function(res){
      console.log('exit status: ' + res.exitStatus)
      console.log('cmd output: ' + res.output)
    })
    

    JS console output:

    exit status: 0
    cmd output: up time: 10 days, 05:16:51, idle time: 17 days, 01:22:57, sleep time: 5 days, 16:38:37
    

    If command execution fails (e.g. you enter wrong command), you receive exit status 100.

    Notes

    • Currently plugin works properly only in user mode. Some code tweaks are needed to run commands as root (I do not have a rooted Android phone to test it).
