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
Quick Tip: Testing Ionic Apps with the PhoneGap Developer App by Holly Schinsky | 08 Sep 2014 | PhoneGap Network The PhoneGap Developer App is a great tool for testing PhoneGap and Cordova apps quickly with no platform SDK setup required on your machine. You just download the PhoneGap App from the app store, run a PhoneGap CLI command from your machine to serve up the application you want to test on any iOS, Android […] Visit Holly'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

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...

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
PhoneGap Developer’s Guide to the iOS Status Bar by Holly Schinsky | 31 Jul 2014 | PhoneGap Network I wrote this post as a guide for PhoneGap Developer’s to use in handling and customizing the iOS Status Bar and to help clear up confusion where documentation is not clear. My testing and conclusions also resulted in the handy little Status Bar Simulator App below to help developers pick preferences to customize their apps […] Visit Holly's Blog
