@Arne

Is it possible to use the parse plugin to build a messenger type application?
"Sending messages to other users"

If so, can u point the direction.

@Savvy001 It is possible if you write some Parse Cloud Code.

while I'm no parse expert, my partner and I recently did some cool stuff with this plugin. i was able to call on parse code on the server that my partner wrote.. our example was basically.. the ability to create characters that i would push.. data was.. name race gender.. then in a different view i could retrieve the information.. load it into a dictionary and call on specific characters.. really awesome stuff.

@savvy001 yes there is some stuff to learn, but parse is brilliant. you can simply send data to parse and pull that data back without writing any code.. i was able to use this plugin to create a set of RPG characters give them a name race and gender and then store it and later call it back. sure this is small stuff but we were able to get it to work with facebook and create an account with facebook. I'm not going to say it's easy, but as a non coder myself, with a little effort I was able to make it happen with this plugin. FrostyElk were super helpful also and worked with us to get the custom dictionary object in C2 to work.. my (coder) partner was largely responsible for that part, but now I can easily pass and retrieve data.. which is pretty freakin' awesome.

One question:
Ho does the plugin handles "Background Push" when C2 apps don't work in background when minimised?

content-available: (iOS only) If you are a writing a Newsstand app, or an app using the Remote Notification Background Mode introduced in iOS7 (a.k.a. "Background Push"), set this value to 1 to trigger a background download.

I am interested to maintain app through background download.

Thank you!

@irina
The Cordova plugin setup the app to respond to push notifications. If the app is in background, the app is started/resumed by Android/iOS and given control with the push message as data.

The push message can then be transfered from the Cordova layer to the C2-plugin and in turn activate a Condition to your app.

Doing a pure "background" download is not supported, the app is first put into foreground and then executed.

I can not see how it is possible to run a webview(where the C2 JS is executed) in a background process. To do this you would probably need to add the logic in the Cordova plugin?

@Arne

Could you please change the type of expression:LastData from String to AnyType? So that it could receive string/number data back.
