Cordova Getting Started

Apache Cordova is a mobile application development framework that enables software programmers to build applications for mobile devices using CSS3, HTML5, and JavaScript instead of relying on platform-specific APIs like those in Android or iOS.

ConnectyCube Cordova SDK is ready to start developing apps – chat, video chat, user authorization, file attachments, push notifications and many more. No server side implementation required. You can concentrate fully on your mobile app development.

This page presents a quick overview of the SDK’s functionalities and logic, then let you go through the easy steps of implementing ConnectyCube in your own Cordova app.

Create ConnectyCube app

Register a FREE ConnectyCube account at, then create your 1st app and obtain an app credentials. These credentials will be used to identify your app.

All users within the same ConnectyCube app can communicate by chat or video chat with each other, across all platforms - iOS, Android, Web, etc.

When building a new app

If you are just starting your app and developing it from scratch, we recommend to use our Code Samples projects.

Download Code Samples

These code samples are ready-to-go apps with an appropriate functionality and simple enough that even novice developers will be able to understand them.

When integrating SDK into existing app

If you already have an app, do the following for integration.

Connect SDK

Simply connect the JS file as a normal script:

<script src=""></script>

where x.x.x is the desired JS SDK version (check for Releases page for all available versions).

Then a window scoped variable called ConnectyCube is created.

Or install the package as NPM module:

Terminal window
npm install connectycube --save

And add script to HTML file from the ‘node_modules’ folder (as a relative path):

<script src="~/node_modules/connectycube/dist/connectycube.min.js"></script>


Initialize framework with your ConnectyCube application credentials. You can access your application credentials in ConnectyCube Dashboard:

appId: 21,
authKey: "hhf87hfushuiwef",
authSecret: "jjsdf898hfsdfk"

Initialize with existing token

It can be a scenario when you might want to create a ConnectyCube session token outside of the app code, e.g. to incorporate this logic at your custom backend server.

In this case, there is a way to initialize SDK by existing ConnectyCube session token:

appId: 21,
token: "5a7bc95d85c0eb2bf052be3d29d3df523081e80y",

Also, there can be another use case when a developer wants to preserve the session between browser page refreshes.

In this case, a session can be stored to e.g. local storage and then can be restored and passed to SDK, so you do not need to re-create a new one if the session is still valid:

const storedSession = localStorage.getItem("ConnectyCube:session");
const session = JSON.parse(storedSession);


An additional set of configs can be passed as a 2nd argument in init function:

const CONFIG = {
debug: { mode: 1 } // enable DEBUG mode (mode 0 is logs off, mode 1 -> console.log())
ConnectyCube.init(CREDENTIALS, CONFIG);

Now integrate messaging & calling capabilities

Follow the API guides on how to integrate chat and calling features into your app:
