APACHE CORDOVA

What is it?

Apache Cordova is a web platform that exposes native mobile device apis and data to JavaScript. Previously known as PhoneGap, the name changed happened when PhoneGap was donated to the Apache foundation.

Currently Apache Cordova is an effort undergoing incubation at The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), sponsored by the Apache Incubator project. Incubation is required of all newly accepted projects until a further review indicates that the infrastructure, communications, and decision making process have stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF projects. While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the completeness or stability of the code, it does indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF.

Why?

Mobile development is a mess. Building applications for each device--iPhone, Android, Windows Mobile and more--requires different frameworks and languages. One day, the big players in mobile may decide to work together and unify third-party app development processes. Until then, Cordova will use standards-based web technologies to bridge web applications and mobile devices. Plus, because Cordova apps are standards compliant, they’re future-proofed to work with browsers as they evolve. Cordova is an open source implementation of open standards. That means developers and companies can use Cordova for mobile applications that are free, commercial, open source, or any combination of these.

Note the following links still refer to the original PhoneGap project. As time goes on, these will be ideally moved to an Apache hosted site or be renamed to the Apache Cordova Brand.
