This documentation is deprecated, and only kept here to support users of browser extension APIs. If you are using for iOS or Android, see

Native pluginsΒΆ


Plugins are currently a beta feature, get in touch with if you're interested in trying them out.

Native plugins allow you to write native Android and iOS code, compile it and include this compiled code in your app built using Forge. As part of this it also provides a method for your native code to communicate with your Javascript code.

Writing native plugins is obviously different for Android and iOS, however we have tried to keep the experience as consistent as possible. With that in mind these docs are split into the various tasks you might want to complete as part of writing a native plugin, with instructions for Android and iOS included in each section.
