Cordova Tutorial

Apache Cordova is used to create Mobile apps with HTML, CSS & JS.

Apache Cordova targets multiple platforms with one code base.

Apache Cordova is Free and open source.

Cordova wraps your HTML/JavaScript app into a native container which can access the device functions of several platforms. These functions are exposed via a unified JavaScript API, allowing you to easily write one set of code to target nearly every phone or tablet on the market today and publish to their app stores.

Who could use Apache Cordova

  1. a mobile developer and want to extend an application across more than one platform, without having to re-implement it with each platform’s language and tool set.

  2. a web developer and want to deploy a web app that’s packaged for distribution in various app store portals.

  3. a mobile developer interested in mixing native application components with a WebView (special browser window) that can access device-level APIs, or if you want to develop a plugin interface between native and WebView components.
