To implement Google Tag Manager in Cordova, you can follow these steps:

  1. Create a new Cordova project or open an existing one.
  2. Install the Cordova Google Tag Manager plugin by running the following command in the Terminal or Command Prompt:
1
cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-tag-manager


  1. Open your project's config.xml file located in the root directory.
  2. Add the following lines within the
1
2
<access origin="*" />
<allow-navigation href="*" />


  1. Create a GTM container in Google Tag Manager and obtain the container ID.
  2. Open the index.html file of your Cordova project and add the following script tag just before the closing tag:
 1

 4

 8
 9
10
11

<script type="text/javascript">
  document.addEventListener("deviceready", onDeviceReady, false);
  
  function onDeviceReady() {
    // Attach the GTM plugin to device ready event
    cordova.plugins.tagmanager.init(containerId, successCallback, errorCallback);
  }

  // This function gets called if the Tag Manager is successfully initialized
  function successCallback() {
    console.log("Tag Manager initialized successfully.");
  }

  // This function gets called if there was an error initializing the Tag Manager
  function errorCallback() {
    console.error("Error initializing Tag Manager.");
  }
</script>


Replace containerId with your GTM container ID obtained from Google Tag Manager.

  1. Save the changes to index.html and rebuild your Cordova project by running the appropriate command, such as:
1
cordova build android


or

1
cordova build ios


  1. Test your application on a device or emulator and check the console logs for any errors or success messages related to Tag Manager initialization.


That's it! Google Tag Manager should now be implemented in your Cordova project and ready to use for tracking events and sending data to Google Analytics or other tags.
