Cordova / Phonegap plugin for communicating with HTTP servers. Supports iOS and Android.

Advantages over Javascript requests:

  • SSL / TLS Pinning
  • CORS restrictions do not apply
  • Handling of HTTP code 401 - read more at Issue CB-2415

Note: This plugin extends the pre-existing cordova-advanced-http-plugin, we have only added approov functionality on top of it. All credit goes to the actual plugin developer.
