This guide assumes basic familiarity with Cordova (PhoneGap), Xcode, and Eclipse. For a more detailed walkthrough of setting up a Cordova project, see the Cordova platform guides.
You should also have:
- Cordova 5.0 or later. We strongly encourage you to use the latest Cordova tools (5.2.0 at the time of this release)
- iOS: Xcode and Xcode command line tools
- Android: Android SDK with "android" tool in PATH or ANDROID_HOME environment variable (Cordova's Setup Guide)
Creating a Cordova app
Open a command terminal and cd to the directory where you want to create your Cordova project:
cordova create hello_connect com.example.helloconnect HelloConnect
This will create a directory named "hello_connect" with a basic Cordova app. Use the following commands to create iOS and Android projects:
cd hello_connect cordova platform add android cordova platform add ios
NOTE: Due to a bug in the current version of Cordova, do not put any spaces in the app name.
Add the Connect SDK Cordova pluginThis will download and install the Connect SDK plugin:
The plugin will set up the projects automatically. If you run into any issues with the automatic setup process, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or file an issue on Github.
