    • Debugging and Deploying with PhoneGap Tools and techniques for testing and distributing cross-platform appsThursday, February 16, 2012
    • Ryan Stewart Web Developer Evangelist, Adobe ryan@adobe.com blog.digitalbackcountry.com @ryanstewart github.com/ryanstewart Based in Seattle Things I Like: Beer Mountaineering/Hiking/Backpacking Geolocation/Mapping stuffThursday, February 16, 2012
    • Agenda • Debugging with PhoneGap • Deploying PhoneGap Apps with PhoneGap BuildThursday, February 16, 2012
    • DebuggingThursday, February 16, 2012
    • Debugging these kinds of apps is best done on device. Luckily there are a few tools that make that easy.Thursday, February 16, 2012
    • It’s all just HTML/ JS, so you can use your browser! Take advantage of Chrome Developer tools/Firebug to test your app’s UI.Thursday, February 16, 2012
    • But what about Device APIs?Because we’re in the web view, there is no way to do line-by-line debugging.Thursday, February 16, 2012
    • No w wi th Luckily we have Weinre, which lets us debug and manipulate the DOM from our PCs.Thursday, February 16, 2012
    • No w wi th Luckily we have Weinre, which lets us debug and manipulate the DOM from our PCs.Thursday, February 16, 2012
    • Weinre can be configured as a server (there is a Mac application) and uses the developer tools from Chrome to provide hooks into the mobile app.Thursday, February 16, 2012
    • Drop in a <script> tag on a remote server and Weinre will let you use the Developer Tools on your apps. *Requires internet access, so keep that in mind.Thursday, February 16, 2012
    • Demo: Debugging with WeinreThursday, February 16, 2012
    • But, a much easier way: http:// debug.phonegap.com/Thursday, February 16, 2012
    • Demo: debug.phonegap.comThursday, February 16, 2012
    • Deploying build.phonegap.comThursday, February 16, 2012
    • e Problem: You’re building a cross-platform app, but dealing with a lot of native projectsThursday, February 16, 2012
    • e Solution: PhoneGap Build - a cloud service forcreating binary files for multiple platforms from a single codebaseThursday, February 16, 2012
    • Thursday, February 16, 2012
    • What PhoneGap Build lets you do:Thursday, February 16, 2012
    • No vendor platform lock-in Want to build for iOS but don’t have a Mac? No problem.Thursday, February 16, 2012
    • Build for every platform at once PhoneGap Build creates binaries for all of the major platforms at the same time and in one place.Thursday, February 16, 2012
    • Debug on your devices Use PhoneGap Build to incorporate debug code in your application so you can test on the device itself.Thursday, February 16, 2012
    • Getting StartedThursday, February 16, 2012
    • 1) Sign up for an account 2) Create an application a) Can be uploaded HTML/CSS/JS files b) Can be a Git/SVN repo c) PhoneGap can create and host a Git repo 3) ProfitThursday, February 16, 2012
    • Build lets you configure app properties across platforms. You can also target specific versions of PhoneGap to maximize compatibility.Thursday, February 16, 2012
    • Core part of PhoneGap Build: Work how you want to workThursday, February 16, 2012
    • Using Git/SVN repositoriesThursday, February 16, 2012
    • Build lets you create a new app from a Git or SVN repository (including GitHub support). Note: It can’t be a private repo.Thursday, February 16, 2012
    • All of your development can be done from source control. Simply “Update Code” from the App page and Build will recreate the binaries based on the code in your repository.Thursday, February 16, 2012
    • Debugging and TestingThursday, February 16, 2012
    • Build includes a debugging option that will inject the Weinre JavaScript into the app so it can be remotely debugged using debug.phonegap.c omThursday, February 16, 2012
    • Just click the “debug” button in Build and start debugging. No dealing with the same wifi connection or USB tethering.Thursday, February 16, 2012
    • What I find to be easiest is to set up a “regular” version of the app and a “debug” version of the app. Can be the exact same repo, but one will provide debug binaries automatically.Thursday, February 16, 2012
    • Build lets you define individuals as tester/ developer which changes permissions on the project accordingly.Thursday, February 16, 2012
    • Testers: Can access the binaries and rebuild the binaries based on what’s in the linked repository. Developers: Can admin the application as well as do all the things testers can do.Thursday, February 16, 2012
    • You can use Build as your testing distribution as well by making the download pages public.Thursday, February 16, 2012
    • PhoneGap Build RoadmapThursday, February 16, 2012
    • Will (soon) support popular plugins so that you can build plugins right into the build process.Thursday, February 16, 2012
    • Windows support also comingThursday, February 16, 2012
    • Demo: PhoneGap BuildThursday, February 16, 2012
