If you think developing an application ? whatever android or others platform and also it’s base on phoneGap . then you first know about PhoneGap Fundamentals. today I will write this article for who are the interest developing application. PhoneGap is probably the most popular framework for building hybrid apps for mobile devices.
For which method you start with, it is easy to put your code to another platform. if you start developing your app for Windows Phone , it is fairly easy to then take your PhoneGap source code and move it into an Android environment.
How To Work PhoneGap
PhoneGap Build Structure
It’s important to understand that the web browser PhoneGap uses is still provided by the operating system, and as such provides the same level of HTML5 support. so that means that when developing your PhoneGap application you cannot assume that the full HTML5 specification.
Native Operating System Features:
PhoneGap Key Component
- An OS Specific Wrapper: This is the bit that’s specific to the OS your building for, that allows PhoneGap to build and deploy your source code.
When you are developing in pretty much the same way for any OS, there is an element of the project that will be specific to the OS. For example, that if you want to deploy an app that was originally developed in an Android environment, to an iOS environment, you will need to build up the iOS wrapper.
Advantages of PhoneGap Build
There’s a lot great about PhoneGap build:
- Speed up the building process
- Simplify your source control structure
- Simplify your development deployments
- No need to maintain several different OS wrappers
Choosing PhoneGap as your mobile app framework can be a smart move if you want to deploy you app cross platform or you want to leverage existing HTML5 skill set. It is a powerful framework, and can provide a quick way to build and deploy mobile apps.
That said it does have downsides such as performance and impaired user experience, so it is certainly not the solution for everyone.
