PhoneGap Day! Andrew Lunny and Hardeep Shoker on Phonegap Build
Andrew was the person who named it Callback, he's the bad person.
PhoneGap Build is an Adobe product in public beta, and free for now.
Build builds apps in the cloud:
Six mobile platforms
Debugging - hosted weinre server
git & Github - tight integration
Observations/Whining: (his words, not mine)
The internet is hard
things like iframes for ads, static resources, XHRs
whitelisting urls in Phonegap
target=_blank to open things in a browser would help things
cross-platform != multi-platform
these aren't the same
phonegap build tries to abstract the sdk away
app != index.html
W3C spec for widget packaging and xml config
mostly don't exist
what they (PhoneGap Build) want
the same js
consistent native api
what we have
github plugin repo https://github.com/phonegap/phonegap-plugins
Child Browser https://github.com/alunny/ChildBrowser
Its not sustainable to keep plugins up to day, let's fix this.
Push code to server, it pushes built app to your phone
Demo was super cool! Thanks Hardeep!
