Hi, I recently started working with CS6 and I'm trying to setup a phonegap application. I was able to make a basic hello world jquerymobile site and upload it to the phonegap build site and getting it working on my android phone...
I'm new to phonegap... I played around with some examples on phonegap 1.2 using eclipse but now I'm getting back to it and wondering how it works with dreamweaver cs6/phonegap build.
I was following the download and setup from the phonegap website here:
What steps can I skip over in dreamweaver? Do I need .jar files, or the .js file, or does phonegap build provide that for me? I have all the initial emulators and SDK installed from my eclipse environment, I'm just trying to get an understanding of what DW CS6 phonegap build does to simplify everything?
any how to's from a dreamweaver standpoint would be appreciated.
When you've built your files, open the PhoneGap Build Service panel, and create a new project. You need to edit the config.xml file (see the PhoneGap Build docs for details), and save it. Then just upload everything, and wait for the magic to happen.
Great thanks. So just to confirm if your working with eclipse, your typically going and 1
1) Installing eclipse
2) downloading android sdk
3) downloading the adt plugin
4) downloading cordova
5) setting up a new project
6) copy a .js and .jar file to new folders
7) copy an xml file to new folders
8) making edits to designated files…
and if your using dreamweaver cs6
1) (optionally download the sdk, adt plugin)
2) Setup a new site
3) Edits the pages to do what they want.
4) Upload to phonegap build and test?
If so, WOW! I’ve been working with dw since 98 (dreamweaver 2 or 4) and this seems to be one of my all-time favorite features if so!
Yep, that's about it. Once you've created the files, it's basically just click and go. PhoneGap Build does the rest. It's great being able to load the packaged app directly onto a test device using the QR code, too.
I've been able to build an app - but when I try to upload it to Google I'm told it is signed with a debug certificate. Is there an easy way to create a certificate that I can supply to phonegap so that I can upload my app to Google? (I'm not a Java programmer so I'm hoping there is a simple solution that is almost as easy to use as phonegap.)
Thanks for your help.
Thanks David - I found that page and it talks about using the JDK and running some command line utilitites and I was hoping to find an easier way. In Flash there is an option to create a self-signed certificate (which I did) but the extension is ".p12" and the Android developer site is looking for something with a ".keystore" extension. I was hoping I wouldn't have to learn Java in order to use phonegap (and get something published to the Android market place).
Thanks for your help - now I'm off to download Eclipse and see what it does....
Good Info David,
I have built a jquery mobile app using DW CS6 with PhoneGap and want to include an audio player and would like to know if there is a way to access the available methods that may be already included.
David - I was ultimately successful (I think) and here are the steps I took to get my app published...
From phonegap to Play Store…
