          • Recording video inside application

            I would pay real money to have a plugin that lets me record a simple video *inside* an application; supporting a loopback mode, switching front/back camera, starting a recording, stopping a recording (and ideally also playing back and seeking of course.)

            Delegating to the native app is simple, but doesn't enable things like duration limiting, providing quick undo/redo from the loopback/preview mode and of course themability.

            Ideally it would also support WebRTC uploads of course, but that's a nice to have for at least a few more years.

              • Camera plugin that is viewable inside a larger page

                There are plugins for camera and barcode capture that transition to the native device's apps. I've had need to have a "windowed" camera viewer, with adjacent or overlaid elements that are part of my app. Essentially, like a <video> or <device> in HTML5

                  • Native Social Authentication

                    Ideally having user authentication via facebook or twitter would launch the natively installed app... e.g. toggle to facebook app... rather than launching the in appbrowser. This plugin seems to have the right concept https://github.com/danwilson/social-auth-plugin however isn't verified here and is somewhat limited in functionality. E.g. you can't logout etc.

                              The Sworkit app (build using Ionic) uses a Cordova plugin to include mPoints. The integration allows you to earn points while completing workouts. I'd love to have access to this monetization option!

                              • Add support for printing PDFs to Print plugin

                                The current Cordova Print plugin only supports printing HTML documents/strings. I'd also like the ability to print a PDF file from a Cordova application (usually generated by jsPDF).

                                I'd expect the API to accept either a path to the PDF file or Data URL string representing the PDF.

                                          Hi,

                                          I just published an APK expansion plugin for Cordova, which automates most of the things. It's not throughly tested yet. Check it out!
