Keeping up with Cordova and PhoneGap by Raymond Camden | 24 Apr 2014 | PhoneGap Network How do developers keep up with the latest updates from the Apache Cordova and PhoneGap projects? The first resource I'd consider is the Cordova blog. Not technically a separate site from the main home page, the News link acts like a blog and is a handy way to get notified about recent changes. There is an RSS feed ( you could add to your favorite reader or consider using an IFTT RSS to Email recipe (like I am adding myself right now!). On the... Visit Raymond's Blog
Logs from Open PhoneGap Session by Raymond Camden | 23 Apr 2014 | PhoneGap Network Thank you to everyone (especially the PhoneGap team!) who showed up to the open session that Holly and I ran today. We had a great size crowd and a very interesting set of questions. Between Holly and I and other PhoneGap members we were able to cover nearly everything. The pace picked up towards the end but we had a firm cut off time so we couldn't go long. We definitely plan on repeating this soon. I'm using Gists for the logs. First is the Q and A log: And here is the chat log. This is... Visit Raymond's Blog
Introducing the PhoneGap Developer App by Holly Schinsky | 22 Apr 2014 | PhoneGap Network If you haven’t heard yet, there’s a new PhoneGap Developer App available for testing your PhoneGap apps quickly. Using this new app, you can quickly test and code changes to your app from your desktop/laptop and see those changes reflected on your device immediately without having to rebuild, reinstall or code sign it through the […] Visit Holly's Blog
PhoneGap Developer App by Raymond Camden | 21 Apr 2014 | PhoneGap Network At the end of last week a really interesting new PhoneGap tool was launched - the PhoneGap Developer App. The PG Developer App is a "shell" application that you can install on a real device (both Android and iOS with Windows Phone coming soon) and test with a local copy of your code. You can skip the SDK. You can test iOS on Windows. All you need is the core PhoneGap CLI and you are good to go. Let's take a quick look. First - ensure you have installed the phonegap CLI via npm. Ensure you... Visit Raymond's Blog
PhoneGap Q&A Connect Session by Holly Schinsky | 16 Apr 2014 | PhoneGap Network Ray Camden and I will be hosting a PhoneGap Q&A Open Connect session to help answer your PhoneGap/Cordova questions next Wednesday, April 23rd at 1pm EST/10am PST. We’ve done this in the past but it’s been awhile, so we thought it would be a good time to host another. We don’t claim to have all […] Visit Holly's Blog
Open PhoneGap/Cordova Session next week by Raymond Camden | 16 Apr 2014 | PhoneGap Network It has been a while, but next week (Wednesday, April 23rd) at 12PM CST, Holly Schinsky and myself will be hosting an open Q and A session for PhoneGap and Cordova. We've run these before and they are pretty successful. There will not be any presentation, but we will take your questions and try to answer them as well as we can. These sessions tend to bring up great discussions and are a good chance to see what other people are struggling with as well. We won't make a recording, but we will... Visit Raymond's Blog
Google Hangout - Debugging Mobile Web/Cordova Apps - A Quick Review by Raymond Camden | 15 Apr 2014 | PhoneGap Network This Friday at 1PM CST, I'll be hosting an online Google Hangout about debugging mobile web/Cordova applications. This is a repeat of what I did at this years FluentConf, so if you couldn't make it, this is your chance. Note that I've set the meeting length to 1.5 hours. It will be much shorter than that. The original presentation was 30 minutes and I anticipate it taking about the same. I'm not sure what Google Hangouts will do if I go past the end of a meeting so I wanted to ensure we...

Results of PhoneGap Survey by Raymond Camden | 11 Apr 2014 | PhoneGap Network Thank you to everyone (all 229 of you) who responded to my PhoneGap/Cordova survey. The survey asked what version of PhoneGap or Cordova you used, how quickly you upgrade, and asked what problems you had (in general) with PhoneGap and Cordova. I've included an Excel sheet of all the results below. Let's look at the numerical results first. First up - what version of Cordova are you using. I expected to see a set of folks still on 2.9.X as the 3.X change was big, and there does seem to... Visit Raymond's Blog
Sociogram: A Sample Application demonstrating AngularJS/Ionic and Facebook Integration by Christophe Coenraets | 09 Apr 2014 | PhoneGap Network About a year ago, I blogged Sociogram, a starter project demonstrating how to integrate with Facebook in your mobile and web applications. A year later, it’s time for a makeover: Here is a brand new version of Sociogram, built with AngularJS, Ionic, and the OpenFB micro-library I shared earlier this week. Sociogram is a sample […] Visit Christophe's Blog
PhoneGap/Cordova – Adding Plugins by Holly Schinsky | 09 Apr 2014 | PhoneGap Network If you’re using the PhoneGap or Cordova CLI’s, it’s important to know there are multiple ways to add a plugin to your project but the end result is the same. At first it may seem a little confusing with the different ways of adding them, and some may think it’s actually a different plugin being […] Visit Holly's Blog
