Prepopulated Database with TaffyDB for iOS and Android with Cordova


I thought I would look for an alternate to SQLite to display a prepopulated database. Research (and successfully creating a working version) led me to TaffyDB. Here is a working project to create your own prepopulated DB. TaffyDB can do so much more if you are familiar with JavaScript (I’m not, so it was difficult trying to figure this much out!).

PhoneGap Desktop App Beta


The coolest thing about the PhoneGap Desktop app is that it uses the PhoneGap Developer app to update the app across all of your devices at once as you make changes on the desktop.

This app is still in its infancy. You still need to use the CLI (Terminal commands) to do the heavy lifting. However, the developer feedback section on GitHub is in full swing as new features are being added every week.

Note that this app uses Adobe PhoneGap commands, not Cordova. Continue reading

This article gets you up to speed on how to integrate your HTML/CSS/JS app with PhoneGap/Cordova into an iOS app using a Mac and prepare it for App Store submission. This article assumes you’ve already followed the steps on https://iphonedevlog.wordpress.com/2013/08/16/using-phonegap-3-0-cli-on-mac-osx-10-to-build-ios-and-android-projects/ to:

Notes About Using PhoneGap Build


This is not a tutorial, but a list of things a Cordova PhoneGap developer needs to know if he or she wants to start using PhoneGap Build (PGB). PGB will take your www/ assets and create the files needed for iOS, Android, and Windows devices. It doesn’t use native files, such as those ending in .h, .m, .java, etc.; the build may fail if these are included. What follows are the notes I took as I considered whether to use the service. Read this as a FAQ page for preparing an app for PGB. Curious as to whether PhoneGap Build is for you? Read on…
