An introduction to Apache Cordova

  1. 1. Apache Cordova (PhoneGap) Mobile Application Development Framework S Prince John email:
  2. 2. INTRO Apache Cordova (formerly PhoneGap) is a mobile application development framework initially created by NITOBI. But eventually, ADOBE SYSTEMS purchased NITOBI in 2011, and re-branded PhoneGap, and later released as an open source version of the software called Apache Cordova. Source:Inter net
  3. 3. SO WHAT IS PhoneGap? ● PhoneGap is a software development framework by ADOBE SYSTEMS, which is used to develop mobile applications. ● To develop apps using PhoneGap, the developer does not require to have knowledge of mobile programming language but only web-development languages like, HTML, CSS, and JScript. ● It solves this by using standards-based web technologies to bridge web applications and mobile devices Source:Inte rnet
  4. 4. HOW DOES IT WORK? ● The user interface for PhoneGap applications is created using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. The UI layer of a PhoneGap application is a web browser view that takes up 100% of the device width and 100% of the device height. ● And It, provides an application programming interface (API) that enables you to access native operating system functionality using JavaScript. You build your application logic using JavaScript, and the PhoneGap API handles communication with the native operating system. Source:Inte rnet
  5. 5. Early versions of PhoneGap required an Apple computer to create iOS apps and a Windows computer to create Windows Mobile apps. After September 2012, Adobe's PhoneGap Build service allows programmers to upload CSS, HTML, and JScript source code to a "Cloud Compiler" that generates apps for every supported platform.
  6. 6. PhoneGap Build PhoneGap Build is a cloud service for compiling PhoneGap applications. Adobe PhoneGap provides a way for users to create mobile applications using technologies such as HTML, CSS, and Javascript. Applications created with PhoneGap can be distributed to various vendor app stores (ex: Apple App Store) and installed on a end-user's device like any other native application.
  7. 7. PLUGI NS Some of the Commonly used plugins ● cordova-plugin-x-socialsharing -- Used for receiving and sending SMS. ● cordova-plugin-webintent2 -- Web View . ● cordova-plugin-x-toast -- Toast Messages. ● cordova-plugin-inappbrowser-wkwebview -- Access in App Browser. ● cordova-plugin-whitelist -- Access Internet. ● cordova-plugin-splashscreen -- Enable Splash screen. gins/ TO SEARCH FOR MORE PLUGINS. To extend the native functionality exposed by the PhoneGap native-app container, PhoneGap Build supports most PhoneGap or Cordova plugins.
