    First of all we need to install the plugin via CLI :

    Now take a look the plugin and its methods. plugin and its methods will not available before the device ready event has been fired. This plugin creates an object cordova.plugins.notifications.badge with some methods which are as follows:

     

    •  Determine permission to set badge notifications:
    cordova.plugins.notification.badge.hasPermission(function (granted) {
        console.log('Permission has been granted: ' + granted);
    });

     

    • Register permission to set badge notifications: 
    cordova.plugins.notification.badge.registerPermission(function (granted) {
        console.log('Permission has been granted: ' + granted);
    });

     

    • Set the badge number:
    cordova.plugins.notification.badge.set(10);
    • Clear the badge number:
    cordova.plugins.notification.badge.clear();

     

    • Increase the badge number:
