ngCordova file & angular provider

ngCordova – good, but can’t use in browser.

ngCordovaMocks - helps a lot, but still need to set grunt task to change what to include for testing in browser and production.

But why not to use $provider for this and set config.js ?

Something similar to section about IE

Tyler McGinnis » AngularJS: Factory vs Service vs Provider

TL;DR

1) When you’re using a Factory you create an object, add properties to it, then return that same object. When you pass this service into your controller, those properties on the object will now be available in that controller through your factory.

2) When you’re using Service, it’s instantiated with the ‘new’ keyword. Because of that, you’ll add properties to ‘this’ and the service will return ‘this’. When you pass the service into your controller, those properties on ‘this’ will now be available on that controller through your service.

3) Providers are the only service you can pass into your .config() function. Use a provider when you want to provide module-wide configuration for your service object before making it available.
