Avoiding alerts in cordova with browser as a client

ConsoleBasedNativeApi

Is a tiny work around for the problem described here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/18623351/phonegap-3-alert-that-if-i-click-ok-crashes-broswer/24974286#24974286

Put this into your js/consolebasednativeapi.js

(function () {
    var ConsoleBasedNativeApi = {
        exec: function(bridgeSecret, service, action, callbackId, argsJson) {
            return console.log(argsJson, 'gap:'+JSON.stringify([bridgeSecret, service, action, callbackId]));
        },
        setNativeToJsBridgeMode: function(bridgeSecret, value) {
            console.log(value, 'gap_bridge_mode:' + bridgeSecret);
        },
        retrieveJsMessages: function(bridgeSecret, fromOnlineEvent) {
            return console.log(+fromOnlineEvent, 'gap_poll:' + bridgeSecret);
        }
    };
    window._cordovaNative = ConsoleBasedNativeApi;
})();

Now link it somewhere in your index.html, before cordova.js, e.g.

        <script type="text/javascript" src="js/consolebasednativeapi.js"></script>
        <script type="text/javascript" src="cordova.js"></script>
        <script type="text/javascript" src="js/index.js"></script>
        <script type="text/javascript">
            app.initialize();
        </script>
