Cordova webkit browser cookie manipulation, XWalk solution

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import cordovaPluginCookieemperor from '';


Cookie Emperor

Since cordova apps should not live without the Crosswalk Project anymore and the InAppBrowser-plugin does not use the XWalk webview sharing cookies is not that easy. Setting up cookies via document.cookie does not provide the expected result and thus the CookieMaster was born. Since CookieMaster is no longer maintained and cannot be build with android sdk < 23 (without gradle hacks) I came to the conclusion to fork this project and keep it maintained to a certain level.

Feel free to contribute, pull-requests will be reviewed.

Supported Platforms

  • Android
  • iOS


Install with Cordova CLI

$ cordova plugin add


A global object cookieEmperor will be bound to the window object.

Get cookie value

window.cookieEmperor.getCookie('http://<some host>:<some port>', '<cookie name>', function(data) {
}, function(error) {
  if (error) {
    console.log('error: ' + error);

Set cookie value

window.cookieEmperor.setCookie('http://<some host>:<some port>', '<cookie name>', '<cookie value>',
    function() {
        console.log('A cookie has been set');
    function(error) {
        console.log('Error setting cookie: '+error);

The cookie value should be formatted just like a regular document.cookie value.

Clear all cookies

    function() {
    console.log('Cookies have been cleared');
    function() {
        console.log('Cookies could not be cleared');
