Android: Enable local cookies in Phonegap webview
Have been creating Phonegap and Android hybrid app with mixed native and Phonegap specific UI components lately. Yesterday I came across a scenario where I was not able to get the cookie information. After hours of exploration found that a single missing line of code was all I needed to correctly retrieve my saved cookies. So here it goes:-
Inside your Activity which should extend CordovaActivity you should write:-
Just above the line:- super.loadUrl(URL_TO_LOAD); that is just before loading the webpage. This will allow cookies to be accepted for file scheme URLs. Hope it saves your time!
