    Currently, if you want to add a custom phonegap plugin, you need to import the source code in your Icenium project. Would it be possible to import already compiled code instead? Cordova plugins are a great way for vendors to provide "drivers" to their specific hardware add-on for devices. But must of the vendors will not share the source code of their driver. They normally provide an SDK which include compiled components. It would be great to be able to create a Cordova custom plugin that wraps their SDK and make it available to Javascript. Is this possible or is it on the roadmap? Thanks

    Hello Stephan,

    Yes, you can develop a custom plugin that wraps the SDK. A handy example of how this has already been achieved is available here.  Once you have the custom plugin and it meets the requirements, you can import it in Icenium.

    If this is your first attempt at creating a plugin, you can start by checking these resources out.
