Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-10704) [iOS] Add support for Universal Links in cordova-ios
Date Thu, 03 Mar 2016 15:09:18 GMT


Dan Polivy commented on CB-10704:

I looked at that plugin, but it was quite heavyweight for what most people would need. Plus,
it uses a different mechanism than the "standard" handleOpenUrl() that is used by the existing
custom URL scheme. I think it would be simpler to be unified to use the same code on the JS

> iOS 9 introduced support for Universal Links (
-- essentially, the ability to launch an app directly given an http/https URL without requiring
a custom URL scheme.
> It would be nice to have built-in support for this in the cordova-ios template, similar
to how the existing {{openURL}} functionality works.
> I created a gist that has an implementation of the necessary delegate to do this, and
it works using the existing {{CDVHandleOpenURL}} private plugin. In addition to the gist,
a new entitlement needs to be added to the project (not sure if this is currently supported
in a standard way), and a server-side configuration file must be uploaded to your domain.
> I've tested this briefly by modifying my project in Xcode, and it seems to work well!
