Keeping Up with the Latest in Mobile Web News by Holly Schinsky | 20 Aug 2014 | PhoneGap Network I’ve been collaborating on a side effort recently and wanted to take a moment to blog about it today as I believe this audience will find it particularly useful if not yet aware. The collaboration is with Brian Rinaldi and Peter Cooper (publisher behind the popular Cooper Press, well known for newsletters like HTML5 Weekly […] Visit Holly'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
Ionic and Cordova's DeviceReady - My Solution by Raymond Camden | 16 Aug 2014 | PhoneGap Network Folks know that I've been madly in love with the Ionic framework lately, but I've run into an issue that I'm having difficulty with. I thought I'd blog about the problem and demonstrate a solution that worked for me. To be clear, I think my solution is probably wrong. It works, but it just doesn't feel right. I'm specifically sharing this blog entry as a way to start the discussion and get some feedback. On the slim chance that what I'm showing is the best solution... um... yes... I planned...

Adobe ID now required for PhoneGap Build by Brett Rudd | 12 Aug 2014 | PhoneGap Build Blog As part of our continued integration with the expanding ecosystem of Adobe’s Creative Cloud we now require all PhoneGap Build users to link their accounts to an Adobe ID. Creating and linking an Adobe ID is easy and can be accomplished by clicking the “Connect an Adobe ID” button on your Settings page. Clicking the button will walk you through creating an Adobe ID if you don’t have one, or will allow you to sign in with an existing Adobe ID. Read more...
Presentation tonight on Apache Cordova by Raymond Camden | 12 Aug 2014 | PhoneGap Network I was originally going to be presenting just to the Memphis Technology User Groups tonight, but they have graciously said they don't mind if I open this up to the public. If you want to hear me give an introduction to Cordova, join me online tonight at 6:30 CST here: I will be giving priority for QA to the Memphis group of course, but all our welcome to join in and - hopefully - learn something as well. This will be over Adobe Connect so be sure to use... Visit Raymond's Blog
