Subject [GitHub] cordova-plugin-inappbrowser pull request: Added Android cookie sha...

    Hi @Sinistralis, in fact i've done a fork and merge your PR to test it out. 
    It seems that you miss only one thing with your PR : the inappbrowser.js is loaded for
iOS and other platforms too. But, since you haven't created the getCookies/setCookies methods
for them, the build fail for these platforms and that's not good at all ! (1)
    To fix this, i've used the cordova device plugin to execute the `exec(...)` function only
on android, but that mean you'll need to have the cordova-device-plugin installed. I don't
think it's the best way to do that, and it can definitely be improved but it's still a working
solution. (you can see my fork here :
    Otherwise, i'm using crosswalk, and this PR seems to fix my cookies sharing issues. I
just have to call manually the getCookies() function before the window.close() action when
i log in to my app using Keycloak, to share the cookies inside my popup with my crosswalk
webview allowing me to use Keycloak iFrames inside my app. Which is really good :-).
    This is the only working way i've found to share cookies between 2 different webviews.
The InAppBrowser plugin use the native UIWebView and, it seems, they will not change this
behaviour, so we need something to share cookies between 2 different WebViews system (Native
WebView and WateverOtherWebView).
    The same thing happens if you want to use the iOS WKWebView instead of the UIWebView.
Since it is a different WebView system, you can't share cookies between them (it is not automatic).
It could be really cool if we can have these magic methods for iOS toĆ  (and that will fix
my (1) point !). That way we can use the new and powerful WKWebView for our iOS application
too. Have you consider to do some Objective C code ? :-D
    Thank you for your work by the way !
    Hope this will be merge someday, it is definitely a solution for those who use different
WebView system :-).
