geolocation: Geolocation

The forge.geolocation namespace allows you to access fine location data.

Although geolocation APIs are part of the HTML5 specification, on some platforms, the default permissions dialogs can be cumbersome. So we offer an alternative way to get geolocation data.


forge.geolocation.getCurrentPosition(options, success, error)ΒΆ

iOS, Android

Get the user's current position.

object request specific levels of service from the location provider, currently supports "enableHighAccuracy": true to request GPS location if available
function(position) callback with an object matching the W3C Position specification
function(content) called when the user chooses not to share their location with your app

Note: To enable easy porting from existing HTML5 code onto Forge, we also accept parameters in the order (success, error, options)


On Android this module will add the ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION permission to your app, users will be prompted to accept this when they install your app.
