Cordova, AngularJs, WebApi and CORS

We have a simple website with some data stored in Azure Table Storage. From a Cordova app we request the data from the webapi we have added to the website. This works great when running on the device, but not when testing locally: Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) won’t let us.

Google sugested creating a proxy and setting it during build. But we went a different route. The webapi was ours, we should simply allow CORS. This is done with a nuget package: Microsoft.AspNet.WebApi.Cors and some configuration.

using System.Web.Http.Cors;
public static class WebApiConfig {
   public static void Register(HttpConfiguration config) {
      // Web API configuration and services
      var cors = new EnableCorsAttribute("*", "*", "*");
      // .. more config ...

Working in a DevOps team is the best thing that happened to me. I like challenges and sharing the solutions with others. On my blog I’ll mostly post about my work, but expect an occasional home project, productivity tip and tooling review.
