PhoneGap Day US and EU Announcedby Raymond Camden | 22 Jul 2014 | PhoneGap Network For a few years now the PhoneGap team have been running a one day conference called PhoneGap Day. This is easily one of my favorite conferences. It has a very laid back vibe. The sessions are short and sweet (20 minutes or so a pop). The schwag is actually useful. Out of all the conferences I attend, this one just feels the most relaxed, fun, and educational as well. This year PhoneGap Day will be held in San Francisco on October 24th and Berlin on September 26th. As before, there will be...Visit Raymond's Blog

Targeting a device type with Cordova Emulateby Raymond Camden | 21 Jul 2014 | PhoneGap Network Today I've got yet another Cordova tip that was probably known to most people. I'm working on a sample application that needs to run on an iPad, not an iPhone, but the problem was that every time I ran cordova emulate ios, it would fire up the application in an iPhone. If I switched the hardware in the iOS simulator settings it would work, but when I recompiled and reran, it reverted to an iPhone. Turns out, there is a simple solution for this. I had never noticed this, but cordova emulate...Visit Raymond's Blog

Cordova Sample: Reading a text fileby Raymond Camden | 15 Jul 2014 | PhoneGap Network A few weeks back I began a list of questions to help build a PhoneGap/Cordova File System FAQ. (More on that at the very end.) As I work through the questions I'm building little samples (like this one) to help demonstrate various FileSystem features. Today's is really simple, but as always, I figure people can find this helpful even if it trivial. (And if I'm wrong, let me know in the comments below.) Today's example simply reads a text-based file from the file system and displays it in the...Visit Raymond's Blog

Yet another Cordova/PhoneGap Debugging Tipby Raymond Camden | 15 Jul 2014 | PhoneGap Network Want another way to debug Cordova/PhoneGap apps? This isn't new, but I tend to forget about this option and it came in handy yesterday so I thought I would share. When you send builds to the simulator/device via the command line, you may notice that at the end of all the output about building this and generating that, you get these two lines: 2014-07-14 17:23:36.846 ios-sim[1335:507] stderrPath: /Users/ray/readtextfile/platforms/ios/cordova/console.log 2014-07-14 17:23:36.847...Visit Raymond's Blog
