Error in getWebAppBackendUrl

Error in getWebAppBackendUrl


I am creating a plugin that contains multiple resource files(HTML/js/CSS) and when I add a new HTML file under the web app, first off, I cannot reference it using the normal method (absolute reference) secondly, I keep getting an error that getWebAppBackendUrl is not found if I use it in a js file in the resource folder. 

Any help would be highly appreciated.

The error that you are getting with getWebAppBackendUrl is linked to your first issue with the absolute reference.

Additional files from the plugin’s resource folder can be accessed by referencing them with /plugins/__plugin_name__/resource/__file_to_get__.

For a js file, it would be for instance : 


<script src="/plugins/__plugin_name__/resource/__file_name__.js" type="text/javascript"></script>


For more details, you may have a look at the documentation and this example (with html , js and css resource files)
