To start developing Tabris.js applications, visit tabrisjs.com and check out the "Getting Started" guide in the documentation. Be sure to also consult the code snippets and examples in the Tabris.js Developer App (download from the app store for Android and iOS).
Tabris.js can be extended with Cordova plugins to add support for additional native features. A cordova plugin is also able to directly interface with the native widgets (as can be seen e.g. in the tabris-plugin-maps).
Additionally npm modules can be used to further enrich the available JS APIs.
Tabris.js also adds support for many key web technologies including:
- XMLHttpRequest / fetch()
To package your source into a installable app, Tabris.js features an online build service. There is no need to download a huge SDK or use specific hardware for development (e.g. a Mac machine to build for iOS). A local build is also available as an option if more customization is needed.
Build tabris npm module
Follow these steps if you want to build the tabris module yourself.
npm install -g grunt-cli
In the tabris-js root directory fetch the dependencies and build:
npm install grunt
