RunKit +

Try any Node.js package right in your browser

This is a playground to test code. It runs a full Node.js environment and already has all of npm’s 400,000 packages pre-installed, including xenious-cordova-plugin-app-version with all npm packages installed. Try it out:

xenious-cordova-plugin-app-version lists no main file and has no index.js, so it can't be directly required. If this is a mistake, please let us know. It may however contain internal files that you can require manually:

// require("xenious-cordova-plugin-app-version/[??]")

This service is provided by RunKit and is not affiliated with npm, Inc or the package authors.

xenious-cordova-plugin-app-version v1.0.3

If you are using jQuery, AngularJS, WinJS or any Promise/A library (Bluebird), promise style is supported. Use something like:

cordova.getAppVersion.getVersionNumber(function (version) {

In addition to the version number you can also retrieve other details about your application:
