Cordova, the Camera plugin, AngularJS, and Ninja Cats. by Raymond Camden | 10 Oct 2014 | PhoneGap Network Just a random tip for folks who may run into this in the future. I'm working on a mobile app for a client and I'm using both Cordova and AngularJS. The application allows people to select a photo from their gallery or take a new picture. It then renders a thumbnail to the web page. It supports any number of selections so my view simply loops over an array. <img ng-repeat="pic in groupPics[group.part]" ng-src="" ng-click="removePicture(group.part,pic)"... Visit Raymond's Blog
Cordova and Large Asset Downloads - An Abstract by Raymond Camden | 07 Oct 2014 | PhoneGap Network Doing something a bit different today. A PhoneGap user contacted me yesterday with an interesting problem. He and I discussed it over a quick Google Hangout, and I thought I'd write up some thoughts about our discussion. Ultimately I want to build a proof of concept around this idea, but I thought I'd start first with an explanation, sans code, to see what people thought. The problem, at a high level, involves downloading data files to a PhoneGap/Cordova application after the user has... Visit Raymond's Blog
Figuring out what version of Cordova created a project by Raymond Camden | 03 Oct 2014 | PhoneGap Network Earlier today a user on Twitter asked how one could determine the version of Cordova used to create a project. As far as I knew there wasn't really a way to determine this, especially since there are multiple versions in play now. But I double checked on the main developer list just to be sure. Once again, Cordova contributor Michal Mocny chimed in to provide some context. What follows is a summarized version of what he said. It meshes with what I knew as well so that makes it doubly true.... Visit Raymond's Blog
Cordova 2.9, WebOS, Symbian, Blackberry and Windows Phone 7 Deprecations by Brett Rudd @brettrudd | 01 Oct 2014 | PhoneGap Build Blog On October 15th, 2014 we will be removing support for WebOS, Symbian, Blackberry and Windows Phone 7 platforms, as well as for all Cordova versions below 3.0.As mentioned in this blog post from February 2014, we will be deprecating WebOS, Symbian, Blackberry and Winphone 7. Cordova has stopped active development on these platforms and we feel continuing support for these platforms on PhoneGap Build means less resources to focus on adding new platforms or improving our service. While Blackberry... Read more...
Cordova, Plugins, and Determining What Supports What by Raymond Camden | 01 Oct 2014 | PhoneGap Network Earlier today a user on the Cordova development list asked if plugins are tested against only the current release of the SDK. This brought up an interesting discussion that I'm summarizing here. First, there is still an idea of "core" plugins versus "third party" plugins. Core plugins include the things that have traditionally been part of the core feature set, like Camera and Geolocation. While there is no firm list of what is considered core, I'd say anything under the org.apache.cordova... Visit Raymond's Blog

Browser as a platform for your PhoneGap/Cordova apps by Raymond Camden | 24 Sep 2014 | PhoneGap Network This is a pretty exciting change. If you've recently updated to the latest version of Cordova, you will notice that a new platform exists: browser. What exactly does this mean? It means the browser is now (well, becoming) a viable way to test your PhoneGap/Cordova applications. For a long time now I've done a lot of my development in the browser. Most of the time I'm not concerned about some random Cordova feature, instead I'm more concerned about something else. So I'll skip, or mock, a... Visit Raymond's Blog
