Cordova iOS and iOS 8 by Shazron Abdullah | 18 Sep 2014 | PhoneGap Network iOS 8 was just released – and Cordova supports it fully, but it is still using the existing UIWebView iOS browser component (more on the new iOS 8 WKWebView later). The main issues were in the core plugins, which have been updated but the released versions in the Cordova Plugin Registry have not. We are […] Visit Shazron's Blog
Having issues sending a Cordova app to an iOS device? Seeing lldb? by Raymond Camden | 11 Sep 2014 | PhoneGap Network Yesterday I ran into an odd issue with an Ionic demo. I was trying to run it on an iOS device and it kept hanging. After about 5 seconds of hanging, I'd see (lldb) and then nothing else would happen. I switched to using the Cordova CLI and confirmed the same thing happened there. After a bit of Googling, I found myself on the Ionic forums at this thread: Error when doing 'ionic run ios'. Long story short, there is a process, lldb, that is hanging around and blocking access to the device. Use... Visit Raymond's Blog

RSS Reader Cordova demo updated with Ionic by Raymond Camden | 05 Sep 2014 | PhoneGap Network A few years back I wrote a series of blog entries (linked to at the bottom) that discussed building a simple RSS reader application with PhoneGap/Cordova. The application used two variables, a simple name and RSS url, to drive an application that would grab the RSS feed, make a list, and let you read individual entries in the app. The final version of the app made use of the (non-core at the time) ChildBrowser plugin to let you read the entry on the site itself. (This was especially useful... Visit Raymond's Blog

Ionic releases an easier path to Cordova / Android development by Raymond Camden | 19 Aug 2014 | PhoneGap Network I promise - I'm not turning into a complete Ionic fan boy, but if you want to call me an unofficial evangelist for them (especially since I don't do that for Adobe anymore), I certainly won't mind. This weekend I was working on the book I'm writing covering Cordova, and as part of that process I worked through the complete setup for doing Cordova development with Android. Most of the time I use iOS but for the book I wanted a platform anyone could use. In fact, I specifically did my testing... Visit Raymond's Blog
PhoneGap/Cordova Example - Getting File Metadata (and an update to the FAQ) by Raymond Camden | 18 Aug 2014 | PhoneGap Network I decided to move my PhoneGap/Cordova FileSystem FAQ from a Google Doc to my Cordova Examples repository. I figured this would make it a bit easier for folks to edit and simpler for me to commit those changes. You can find the FAQ here: PhoneGap Cordova File System FAQ In doing so I decided to quickly knock out one of the questions - how to get metadata about files. This is rather trivial, so my demo app is rather trivial, but hopefully it will help folks. The basic gist is - once you... Visit Raymond's Blog
