Apache Cordova

Getting Started with PhoneGap / Apache Cordova

Apache Cordova is the open source version of PhoneGap. The following video takes you through the steps of installing Cordova and building your first iOS app on your Mac. Most of steps will also work for installing Cordova on a Windows Machine – but you will not be able to build an iOS app (that’s a Mac on thing).

In the video I use a bunch of Command Lines to run the programs. Below are the short cuts I was using:

$ cd /users/bmwmzd0/desktop
$ sudo npm install -g cordova
$ cordova create myFirstApp
$ cd myFirstApp
$ cordova platform add ios
$ cordova platforms ls
$ cordova build ios
$ cordova emulate ios-sim

Let me know if the video helps. As I have mentioned before, Cordova / PhoneGap is awesome for proving out concepts. You can be up and running in no time.
