Android Question

phonegap build not showing splashscreen

This question has been asked in the past but none of the answers that I have found have solved the problem for me.

I am trying to make a very simple phonegap app to show a splash screen and announce when it is ready. It is just a test app to work out how to use the splash screen.


  • I am using phonegap build through the phonegap cli.

  • phonegap version 3.5.0

  • tested on android only



I have a www folder where
config.xml
is located. All the splashscreens are located within
www/res/screen/<platform>/filename.png


my config file is

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<widget id="uk.co.workshop14.splashscreen-example-app" version="0.1.0" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/ns/widgets" xmlns:gap="http://phonegap.com/ns/1.0">
<name>splashscreen-example-app</name>
<description>
Hello World sample application that responds to the deviceready event.

Answer

You don't have the default splash tag which is

<splash src="splash.png" />

It's in the documentation: http://docs.phonegap.com/phonegap-build/configuring/icons-and-splash/

Update

If you are using phonegap version cli-5.1.1 or above, you need the new splashscreen plugin from npm.

Here's the new plugin on github, there you can find how to use it:
