Using Angular and a Content Security Policy? Watch out for this… by Raymond Camden | 03 Jul 2015 | PhoneGap Network I’ve been working on a Cordova app that uses AngularJS. It has been working fine for a while now but I needed to do a bit of cleanup. After I pushed up my changes, my client noticed something odd. We have a button that only shows up under certain situations. Basically, if some scope variable […] Visit Raymond's Blog
Ionic Push example supporting State Changes by Raymond Camden | 02 Jul 2015 | PhoneGap Network Please note that I’m writing this blog post while Ionic Push is still in Alpha. Everything I discuss here may change before 1.0 is released. Use the following code with caution. One of the more interesting features of Ionic’s Push feature is the ability to recognize a push message with state data. You can craft […] Visit Raymond's Blog
Working with Ionic, Box, and IBM MobileFirst by Raymond Camden | 24 Jun 2015 | PhoneGap Network Earlier today IBM announced a new partnership with Box.

Using Cloud Code, Mobile Application Security, Node.js and Bluemix by Raymond Camden | 09 Jun 2015 | PhoneGap Network So, first off, forgive the somewhat long, rambly title. I’m working on a new project that involves quite a few moving parts – many of which are new to me. I ran into some trouble along the way (well, a lot of trouble), and this morning I finally broke through and got things working. I […] Visit Raymond's Blog
Cordova Sample: Capture and Display Video by Raymond Camden | 05 Jun 2015 | PhoneGap Network Just a quickie – a user on Stackoverflow asked how to both capture video and display it in the app. This is fairly easy with the Media Capture API so I thought I’d whip up a quick demo. First, I created an HTML page with a button and an empty div to hold the video […] Visit Raymond's Blog
Important information about Cordova 5 by Raymond Camden | 25 May 2015 | PhoneGap Network In the most recent update to Apache Cordova, there was a rather important change that could really confuse you if you aren’t paying attention. This is exactly the type of thing that I would have warned my readers about, but I mistakenly thought it would not impact most users. I’ll explain later why I screwed […] Visit Raymond's Blog
Getting initial console messages you missed with remote debug by Raymond Camden | 21 May 2015 | PhoneGap Network This falls in the “I’m sure it is obvious and no one will find it useful” category, but typically those are the posts that end up being useful so here goes nothing.
