Cordova originally called Phonegap is a powerful framework for developing cross-platform hybrid mobile applications (Android, IOS, Windows Phone …). In Novazen, we often use it for both offsore developments and for local businesses.
This tutorial is the first in a series where we will see how to create an effective and efficient mobile application with PhoneGap. In this first step we will see how to create a Phonegap project under windows.
Installing NodeJS on Windows
The Cordova development team chose NodeJs to manage project creation and dependency management between plugins. So she created a console-based interface for creating apps. It is this interface that we will use in this tutorial and in those that will follow.
To install NodeJs, go to http://nodejs.org/ and click on the installed link (see figure below) to download the setup. At the end of the download, double click on the setup and let yourself be guided.
