Apache Cordova for Windows 8 Metro

Getting Started

For Cordova API developer

  • Who want to develop Cordova API
  • You could use the project in src folder directly.
  • If you want to export the project with zip package, open the project in \tool\CordovaBuilder with Visual Studio (Administrator) , build and run it, then open you command prompt(Administrator), type the command according to the guide:

    Usage: CordovaBuilder [ BuildOutputPath -c:Type ].  
        BuildOutputPath : path to save the built application.  
        -c : which type of project you want to create, 0 for Metro App developers, 1 for Cordova API developers, default is 0.  
    examples:  
         CordovaBuilder bin\Debug.  
         CordovaBuilder bin\Release -c:1.
    
  • A ZIP file named CordovaStarter.zip will be generated.

For Metro App developer

  • Who want to develop Metro App by using Cordova API
  • Do the same steps as above. -c:Type should be 0.
  • A Visual Studio template named Cordova-Metro.zip will be generated. Move it to the directory of your VS Template. You do not need to unzip it. e.g.:C:\Users\xxxx\Documents\Visual Studio 2012\Templates\ProjectTemplates
  • Open the VS, FILE -> New -> Project..., input the template name 'Cordova-Metro' in the search textField. Select the template and modify items about your new proj at the bottom of the pop-up window.
  • Click the button OK. Then Add -> Existing project... select the SQLite3.vcxproj in the lib\SQLite\SQLite3. Build it.
  • Select the Cordova project in the Solution Explorer, then Project -> Add Reference... -> select the SQLite3.
  • Build and Run the project Cordova-Metro. If running takes a long time, simply stop the running, then rerun (known issue).

Run the Sample App

  • Open the samples\TestAppCordova\TestAppCordova.sln with visual studio.
  • Build and run.
  • Play around with accelerometer, geolocation, and compass.

How to Run the Tests

  • Open the src\src.sln with Visual Studio.
  • Build or re-build the project.
  • Modify the default.html under test folder, choose the test case you want to run, and comment out any other tests.
