Come and chat about Cobalt and mobile
We created a new kind of event for the community to chat about Cobalt and the mobile dev world. A complement of the existing Coding parties, at lunch time, on a monthly basis.
The next “Discuss” event will take place at the Anticipa’s living room on November 21 !
Take a sandwich and join us ! It’s free and open to everyone.

Subscribe for Cobalt events
We decided to quit Meetup, it was too expensive for us and community tools were poor.
From now, we will use Mailchimp and Google Forms to invite you to Cobalt Events.
If your are interested in our coding parties, conferences, training courses or other events, please subscribe below.
The next coding party is on September, Tuesday 13.
Summer is here, we hope you are all enjoying the sun all around the globe.
We captured a rare shot of the feet of a well known Cobaltians, enjoying life on a desert island of Brittany.
Ok, but what comes next?
We have started our coding parties in April and it was really cool. We continue and the next one will happen in September. If you want to be part of it, register now on the Cobalt mailing list!
And finally, we will have a stand and distribute goodies at the Devfest Nantes 2016. See you there!
A new plugin to share your files and content to other apps
Why did we need to make such a plugin?
A Cobalt app has to get used to news uses and sharing content became essential and common. That’s why we had to create a Sharing plugin for Cobalt.
Just specify the type of the content (e.g. a text, image or video) and where to find it (an URL, the assets folder, etc.), then call cobalt.share(data)!
What does it do?
This plugin can share text, documents, pictures, video, music or other files type but also add contacts from you app. If needed, it can automatically download the content from Internet and save it into your phone storage for proper sharing.
How to use it?
Here is a sample code of sharing an image from an URL.
Usage on the Web side is quite straightforward:
Documentation can be found here.
Try it out and tell us what you think!
You can also try this feature in the Catalog App.
