Powered by the Ripple Emulator
Under the hood, PhoneGap Emulation is powered by BlackBerry’s Ripple Emulator. The emulator was originally created by the folks at TinyHippos and is now part of the BlackBerry WebWorks SDK. This is a powerful open source tool that the PhoneGap team feels is unutilized in the world of mobile web development.
While it would be nice to remove both of these requirements, we’re not there yet. On the upside, Google Chrome has some of the best developer tools around, including Touch Event Emulation, and a rapid update cycle that continues to add modern features, such as the File System.
There are two ways to use PhoneGap Emulation: Web Interface or API.
Browse to emulate.phonegap.com and enter the URL to emulate.
You can emulate any URL that is accessible from your computer, including
localhost and intranet addresses.
Automatically invoke Ripple by making a request with the query-string parameters.
